    Used Truck shopping...maybe

    I disagree. I believe mine to be "cheap" and it's not beat or high mileage. Does it have dings and scratches? Yes. But it's in great shape and I took really good care of it, as did the prior owner. They're out there, just tough to find.

    Used Truck shopping...maybe

    I'm selling mine if you can drive a manual. I just took a job downtown and I don't want to sit in stop and go traffic for 1+ hour with a manual. Located in NY but willing to ship. https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/threads/2003-dodge-dakota-sport-4-7l-v8-5-speed-manual-4x4-club-cab.326590/

    2020 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition CrewMax Review

    Oh wow, I didn't think this would even get to 6 pages! So I've been in the market for a 1/2 ton for a while now. Toyota just isn't putting the cash on the hood of these trucks, mainly due to low inventory. Here's what I wanted to get: <img...

    2020 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition CrewMax Review

    I think it's fake wood (plastic.) Some Tundra guys have had issues with it cracking. This truck had a little over 4,000 miles on it and the wood was like new. Looks are pretty subjective, but this truck looks a lot better in person. Most modern vehicles look better in person. It's hard to...

    2020 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition CrewMax Review

    I recently spent a week driving a 2020 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition Crewmax. Here are my thoughts. <img src="https://chrisleoonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/MG_0449-1024x683.jpeg" alt="[Linked Image from chrisleoonline.com]" class="post-image"...

    Which engine lives the harshest life?

    Probably a marine engine. Constantly under load, and that's before you factor in the damp and sometimes salty environment.

    What is your opinion of the 2020 Ford Ranger?

    If you're going to tow a boat do yourself a favor and get the F150. I tow a boat and trailer weighing nearly 5k with a midsize. An old midsize (2003 Dodge Dakota.) I'm going full size for my next truck. I've towed the boat with a new Tacoma, new Colorado. They can all do it just fine, but...

    Storing a car in FL

    Just take the battery out and store it in a cool, damp place. I wouldn't stress over being able to use a tender. I would do everything in my power to keep the car out of the elements.

    Stock market!!!!

    Volatility is here to stay. Buying and selling is too easy, anyone with a cell phone can do it. I generally follow the Bogleheads investment theory. I'll be buying whether the market is at 3000 or 30. Set a reminder every year for Jan 1 to review your allocations and rebalance as necessary...

    Hard time selling my vehicle.....

    Probably because it's an undesirable car with 150k on it. Most people shopping in that category want reliability. They don't necessarily care about cleanliness. My friend has sold countless rusty Civics in that price range with similar mileage. It's all about what you're selling. Also your...

    TDI storage?

    I rotate between two cars, sometimes they sit for two weeks in below zero temps and I've never had a problem. I always make sure to drive them regularly and fix things before they become a bigger issue. Even if you were to park it for a month without a battery tender, you'll unlikely have to...

    TDI storage?

    Just take it for a drive once every week or two.

    Does Brita Water Go Bad?

    I'm relieved that I figured out the issue. I was starting to wonder if being stuck inside was stressing me out to the point of causing stomach problems, haha. Thanks.

    Does Brita Water Go Bad?

    I have one of those Brita pitchers in my fridge. I think it's had the same water in it since summer. I drank it yesterday and have had stomach upset ever since. It's the only thing I've done differently diet-wise. So my question is, how long is that water good for in the pitcher? I tried...
