Is that a pickup or a friggin semi?? It will take a step ladder just to put the single bag of grass seed in the bed of it by the rich yuppy dude that bought it to show the other rich yuppy neighbors what a rich and powerful man he really is.

while unimogs are cool, who decided on the engine on the maximog? another boat anchor 350 chevy? that wouldn't work too well in the third world, a diesel (non brand-x)would be much better.

87MPH top speed. You could not even outrun a tractor/trailer semi in that thing.

I don't think they have to they are still on top with resale and reliability and on the road while the others are in the shop or the junk yard. I am far from anti American cars/trucks but the stats and personal experience kinda hard to beat those Toyotas....

Fine for my use, my current truck won't run over 77 MPH due to gearing. Fast enough for me.

Guys who drive Tundra's are like guys who drive those Japanese bikes that look like Harley's.

Japanese vehicles dominate list of most-reliable used cars
Honda Civic, Toyota Camry, Subaru Forrester among 18 recommended by Consumer Reports
By Andrea Coombes
CBS MarketWatch

SAN FRANCISCO - U.S. automakers may be making gains in quality, but Japanese cars still trounce other makes when it comes to reliable used vehicles, according to Consumer Reports' latest list of top used-car gems.

From Honda's Civic EX to the Toyota Camry XLE V6, the Subaru Forrester and the Nissan Pathfinder, Japanese-made autos dominated the list of best-value cars, comprising 15 of the 18 bargains.

The three others were U.S. models. Cars made in Germany, Sweden, Korea and elsewhere were no-shows on the list.

The chosen cars have ``proved reliable, performed well in Consumer Reports' tests when new, and offer excellent value for the money,'' the consumer-advocacy group said in a release.

Instead of spending so much money on a gigantic truck lik ethat, why not simply wear a shirt that says "I have a tiny wiener" ?
Link Posted: 11/9/2003 1:57:29 PM EDT
Saw my first one yesterday.

Was at a National Horse clinic, and one of the clinicians uses one as his horse hauling rig.

His didn't have the P.U. bed, but a custom gooseneck body.

I'm a Dodge man, but I really liked it.

Like me. I'm no mechanic, nor do I enjoy working on vehicles. I bought my motorcycle so I could ride it, not work on it. I bought my Tundra because it fits my needs perfectly... it'll hold it's value well (even better, since I bought it when it was one year old), it rides quieter than any other truck out there, and is very capable off-road. All in all, TCO is lower with these Japenese vehicles.

Yea, comsumer's report, there is a non biased source. The same magazine that claims if you own firearms and don't keep them in a safe with trigger locks 24/7, that you should be charged as a criminal. The same pub that slams anything the Bush administration does. As to TCO being lower for jap stuff, there are many that claim otherwise. How about the widespread problem of oil sludging toyota engines. Or how about the faulty brakes on the tundra?

I think they offer 4WD. That's probably the $99,000 model.

Huh?

Ok...I don't mean to pee in your Wheaties...but 3000 watts of audio power? What in God's name is the need for that much sound?

Guys...we normally only use between 5-20w/dbm for running our stereos. At home, much more than that (Unless of course you're listening to something like TUSK!) and the stuff starts falling off the walls and the Old Lady begins pounding on your head just before she flees with the kids and dogs. Trust me, it don't take much audio watts to make you a pariah in your 'hood. Soooo...I say again...3kw? Must be a misprint.

What would you use that truck for? My little 4x4 ranger hauls just about everything I'd need...and if I really needed something big, I'd get me an F-350 dooly. What would this beast be used for?

Looks cool though...but if I was going to get a chick magnet for that much $$$, I'd try something a bit sexier.

Link Posted: 11/9/2003 3:46:48 PM EDT
This Is not a new concept...
GM and International has simaler rigs already out. They re trying to capture the Livestock And RV hauling markets. Many of the new RVs with 3 slides and triple axels are too much for a one ton. Same with livestock they are making larger and larger trailers for the big boys on the national show circut. A buddy of mine runs A Dodge cummins R/U with a large show trailer Its seriously turned up and he runs farm plates on it so he can legally pull the extra wieght... Now he is having reliability problems with it. In todays PUs there really isnt a worry about power to pull somthing its brakes. My friend has cracked front disk coming down a pass already. He is now looking into buying a Mini semi or one of those F550-650 ect.

Just a tiny suggestion.
If you have a new E-350 or larger. Or purchase replacement fuel tank for them....

Don't be surprised if your tank leaks,has foam ear plugs,weld spatter or nice big balls of weld wire inside the tank clogging things up. Fresh from the factory.

QC aint what it used to be trust me.
