Fellas and Barb;
We seem to be a bit more isolated here in this thread so I'll ask your opinion here, instead of out there^^

Which do you prefer and why? Red car not included, I was just too lazy to look for a better pic

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


Here's what I have so far

Lets face it . I'm not going off roading everyday, nor am I towing a horse or construction trailer everywhere I go. So all that payload stuff isnt huge for me, but it may be a factor at resale,

Ford...rear seats are like a condo back there.

Ram ....front end is sooo pretty, and of all the trucks I've tested it rides the smoothest.
Middle back seat is small, suitable only for a narrow little behind. But do I really care, I will be driving.

Anybody care to offer opinions on resale? repairs ? reliability and durability ?

Thx

I'm not loyal to any certain brand of cars / trucks. But given the choice - going by looks - I'd have to go with the Dodge Ram. I love the way they look. But I'd go with a dark red or navy blue color.

Take my opinion with a grain of salt though. I drive a 2000 Chevy minivan that I bought used when it was 2 years old. It still looks good. If I didn't do daycare and have 4 grand kids and wasn't too much of an el cheapo to buy a brand new vehicle, I'd be at the Dodge dealership buying a brand spankin' new Ram.

Of course, when it came time to make that $600+ per month payment, I'd be kicking myself in the dupa. One thing in this world that I hate the most is big car payments. They are one of those necessary evils in life.

Here's something to think about. When gas prices get as high as they are, a lot of people sell their trucks and SUV's because they need something that gets better gas mileage. You might be able to find a super good deal right now on a decent used truck and save some money. Just a thought.

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


eh ! Its only money !
Actually hard to believe but according to any of the manufacturers "compare your vehicle" website, my suv is a bigger pig on fuel than any of the 4x4 pick ups.
Reliabilty is huge for me. My suv is nearing the end of its extended warranty and things are gonna start to happen so its time to unload. Nearly new is probably always better, but the incentives out there right now are crazy. I miss my old truck. It went out in the wash.

Dark navy is good, but dark charcoal is better. Unfortunately, I can't be seen in a red car. Its bad for my image.

Creeper,

I bought a Toyota Tacoma last year and love it. Reliable, only 6 cyl so not too much of a gas hog. Has a decent towing capacity, 6500 lbs, only a 6' bed though. I take it up into the back country onto logging roads to get firewood and I'd not had one single oh oh moment. There's not as much snow out here as you'll get, except in the hills, but it does great with the right winter tires. And they have a pretty good resale value compared to other mid sized pick-ups.

I'd been wanting a truck for a while, did a ton of research, and found that the Taco fit the bill for me.

Thanks for the feedback!!

My neighbour has a Tundra that he loves, but I thought the Toyotas were a little pricey. Nissan is offering 0 % for 8 years on the Titan. Thats like free money as long as they don't make it up in the finance charge
I am looking for full size 4x4 though.

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


I had a 4 door Ford Dually Powerstroke, that dude would pull anything you put behind it and it wasn't too bad on fuel. I have a 1990 Toyota 4X4 and don't want a new one, that little truck will pull anything I want it to I have pulled a 2 ton bob truck out ot a ditch with my older Toy and it only had a 4 cyl, the one I have now is a 6 banger. I wish I got better mileage in the little Toy, 19 MPG isn't much for a small truck.

Ok, now for food, Judy made a fantastic chicken dish today, when I cut loose on it, it sounded like a hog in a slop trough in the kitchen while ago, I cut up a fresh Hebenero pepper and ate the whole thing, I was doing a little sweating so it had to be warm, I just hate tomorrow.

Did you make your decision Jan?

Jim, anything spicier than mild salsa is more than I care to try. But you reminded me of when I was a kid. My dad and uncles would be sitting by the campfire or at the table eating hot peppers, Tobasco Sauce, etc. - anything hot. None of them would admit anything was too spicy. Sometimes the peppers would be so hot their eyes would be watering. It was fun to watch.

Now, about that delicious chicken dish...... is it a recipe she'd like to share?

-I'm typing this from my phone and its hard on my aging eyes.
I'm with you Barb about the hot spice. I'm a wimp with the heat, but I'd sure like to know Judy's recipe that caused you to hoover your food.

My friend gave me a quick and easy recipe for chops and apples that she says is really tasty and tender so I will post that later Maybe I should try it first

No decision yet on the truck...As soon as I think I've made up my mind somebody will say something to change it. I think I will search for a new 2011 F150 with ecoboost. If I can find one with the accessories I want at my price point then maybe Ill sign on the line
