A new Titan!!!

(Guess what JohnnyEgo's getting for New Years? Monthly Payments )

Gone are the days of the Tactical Minivan. I thought about getting a Honda Element after seeing Burney's, but got distracted by this instead:











Nothing overly special. It does have power adjustable pedals for the little woman, and a rear sonar system so I don't crush lesser vehicles. After driving it around the mall parking lots today, I wish it had a front and side sonar system as well. It comes with a 38 gallon gas tank, so when the initial courtesy fill runs dry, I'll really feel the joys of ownership.

This is my first brand new vehicle ever. Bought it through a work program that was very convenient and relatively hassle free. I'm very excited.

Yeah... have fun with that gas issue. I feel your pain.

I have an 05 Armada and have had a heck of a time with the ABS/stablity controls. The dealer finally changed out the ABS valves after 3 trips and it has been fine for over 1k miles. It sucks that I had to threaten lemon law to get them to fix it. Otherwise I love it.

I'm afraid I don't quite follow you. If one were to be pointing an AR at the person behind them, is this not what that person would see? If I pull my BCG out of any of my guns, this appears to be the orientation of the bolt when looking directly at it. Then again, I can look at the Gun Gallery parking lot and see several examples of blatantly wrong orientation, so anything is possible.

Diverter - Yup, 14 MPG sucks. Literally, it sucks out all the gas as well as the balance in my checking account at an alarming rate. The bed does look long, but oddly enough, it's the exact same size as the Dodge Ram SLT - 6'4". Weird optical effect, I suppose.

Does the direction matter?

the way I envision it, you'd put the sticker on the window in the same manner as if you made an impression of the bolt face on the glass, in which case the extractor would be on the right.

but I understand what you mean about the way you have it being the "business end perspective."

Very nice looking truck. My 2007 Dodge Ram-2500 w/the Cummins Diesel, and a 35 Gallon tank sucks $116.00 from empty to full about every 8-10 days. I so feel your pain, bro. Nothing like owning a truck though.

I'll miss it as well, although the new work van has those flip & fold seats, and doesn't send everyone running to hide their guns and/or children like the big white panel van did.

Incidentally, tonight I was looking down at my new truck from my office when the little woman wandered in to enforce bad movie night. She took one look at me staring at my new truck and said "You're going to become such a redneck." To which I replied, "Baby, I've always been a redneck. I'm just coming out of the closet."

Once you get used to driving a truck, you won't wanna go back. After driving all sorts of cars for years, when I got my F150, I'll never get rid of it. As for the gas, it's not as bad as it seems. You just gotta kinda don't look at the pump as it's pumping.

SWEET!

I can't believe the van is gone. Damn, that thing was cool in it's own right.

it's easy....20# bag of rice in tank...then fill the rest with gas.

Having looked at the price of gas and the equivalent volume of rice, I sincerely wish I could fill it up with Uncle Bens.
