Damn right they’re better then yours

My 4 year old just invented snow tires

We might have a slow leak in one our tires on the truck, so I was telling my wife at dinner we might need new tires (they’re mismatched budget tires, I’m looking for any excuse, really). My 4yo daughter chimes in and says it might snow soon, we should get snow tires. I looked up at my wife and she saw the look of…

Awful parking Awful parking

I mean, come on. You didn’t try. I know it’s Home Depot, but that’s an accord, not some F350

Introducing my truck! Introducing my truck!

I’d been looking for a truck to have around for trips to Home Depot, house projects, all that sort of stuff. More accurately, my wonderful wife has been looking for a truck, and I’d been stupidly saying things like “we don’t really need one”. A little while back I decided to stop looking a gift horse in the mouth, and…

Truck bed rust and refinishing questions Truck bed rust and refinishing questions

So we just got our new to us truck back from the shop, and I’m tackling cosmetic and rust issues. I already detailed the interior. Side note: the chemical guys have an upholstery brush that attached to a drill. Unbelievable. Fantastic results. The dirt that came out was frightening.

Brake brands

I’m in need of new drums and shoes on the truck we bought, and trying to decide what is being price smart and what is cutting corners. A local shop quoted me 500 using Denso parts, the dealer is over 800. I can get cheaper parts off of Rock Auto (centric brand), but are they junk? Any experience with the brand? I…

Ten year old truck maintenance

So I took the plunge and got a ten year old Tundra with 230k miles and a misfire for cheap. It took two mechanics, and senior tech two days to figure it out (after I convinced them it wasn’t likely a head gasket based off how it drove) to figure out it was the 2 and 6 fuel injectors. So I’m having all injectors done,…

Ran Marine Corp marathon this morning, ama

Didn’t hit my goal time, but that’s ok. Training didn’t go perfect, but even if it had, parts of that course where too narrow and bunched up the runners. I was a minute a half off pace for the first 3 miles just on account of crowding.

I'm buying a tundra!

So I found an 06 tundra, 230k miles, v6, listed at $4750. Took it in for a PPI, and it showed a misfire on 3 cylinders. The mechanic said it’s the best looking frame on that era Tundra he’s seen. So we were going to take in to our mechanic to try and diagnose the misfire, and negotiate a price. We also have the option…

Vin Check anyone?

Looking at a 1 owner 06 tundra with 231k for $4750. I really hope this one works out, I’m getting sick of looking for trucks.

Yay or nay

Checking this truck out. Thoughts y’all?

Yay or nay

Taking a drive to check this guy out. Thoughts y’all?

Disappointing tundra

So that nice price tundra I wanted to buy went to the local dealership for an inspection. Oh boy. Down in flames. Both Exhaust manifolds leaking, control arm, transmission pan seeping. No evidence of timing belt changed. No oil on dip stick. 4 thousand dollars just to get it to pass Virginia safety and emissions (on a…

2000 tundra np or cp?

Having this guy inspected at a Toyota dealer tomorrow morning. What’s OPPOs thoughts?

Interference engines and timing 

Looking at a used frontier with a vg series 6 cylinder at a garage, and they mention it was a client’s truck, the timing belt went and they didn’t want to pay. The shop took it, fixed it, and is selling it. As I understand, the vg is an interference engine, so if that belt went so did a whole lot else. Is this…

Used car lots and pre purchase inspection

So all of Tom’s articles talk about getting a pre purchase inspection, and were trying to get a truck, so I figure yeah, let’s follow some good advice. Found a nicely priced, very high mileage truck on car gurus, so I call a local garage near the lot. They’re completely game, as in “yeah, of course. 90 bucks, 45…

School me on Nissan frontier

Seems like I can get the size I want, with 4 doors, and not get the Tacoma tax. What do I need to worry about?

To beater truck, or not to beater truck

That’s the question OPPO. So, my wife thinks we should get a beater truck. I’m not convinced. We would’ve used it about half a dozen times this year and last. I think we’re mostly done with house projects that a truck would facilitate, but I would’ve said that last year too, and been wrong. If nothing else, we get the…

Really, hotwheels? Really, hotwheels?

This is a guy pushing a shopping cart. Have we run out of ideas? Are there no more cars to make?
