So fucking what if it's a fwd awd. You aren't gonna be drifting a truck.

Just wanted to correct the error. FWD actually makes sense for empty-bed commuting in the winter.
Think I could haul a motorcycle or two in the bed and pull a utility trailer?

What are the benefits of trucks vs vans?

Seems like a van is just a truck with an enclosed bed.
22 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
Borrowing a pickup truck to haul things is a popular meme so it won't occur to people that they can use a van to do the same thing in many instances.
Keeping it simple: urban vs rural. Vans protect your gear from casual thieves and the homeless, but are useless against a redneck that will just tow your shit himself. Pickups, especially in a flat/stakebed configuration, give you far more space to work with vs a van. P/Us can take higher freeway speeds as they are equipped with bigger wheel diameters, however the low floor vans have will save your back when loading large (but not oversize) items. Vans can parallel park easier when p/us can't.

That's all there is to it. Where you work and how you work matters more than anything else.

By the way if this is a legit work truck then consider pic related as well. The higher up-front cost will pay off with the greater load capacity, parking ability and general usefulness against a normal van/truck. Especially ones with duallies, as they can take much greater loads that comparable dually vans/pickups.
>By the way if this is a legit work truck then consider pic related as well.
NPR has no sex appeal so pickup truck buyers won't like it. It's too much truck for van drivers too. However these things are amazing if you just need to do ALL the truck things and jump start the eternal storms of Jupiter in one trip.

For the supra its really not all bad to have a auto, especially if youre just going to take it on the street and go straight with it.
- for supra loving, validation seeking, hero movie watching, and lonely techies with nowhere else to spend money on, yes.
auto supra would only add to their comedy, that is, their life.
sorry bud gonna have to say no
anyone whose clueless about turbo cars will lol at automatics... but theyre fantastic for no loss of boost from lifting throttle and it's just too easy to own other shitboxes.

If tuning an Ecoboost can get you 75 extra free horses, why doesn't Ford just tune it as such from the factory? Obviously, the engineers at these little tune shops aren't smarter than the ones at Ford, so what gives?
Ford is discontinuing their 3l for the f150 and the ecodiesel is unreliable at best.

>Unfortunately, my truck is only 2WD

Man that’s the only downside in what sounds like an otherwise awesome truck, but it sounds like you’re sticking to what the scope of the truck is and just making it a nice street machine, too many guys with 2wd trucks make them look like offroad monsters and get stuck in the slightest patch of sand, it would’ve been nice to see you cruising the trails though.

No joke.

ayylmaos hate this trick. it turns off the ufo receiver. all the stories you've heard about people being abducted from their cars was because they forgot about this button.
Then why is the button in the car? Obviously the alarm isn't going to go off when you're in the car (I hope). But I hate car alarms anyway so don't mind me.
Because it doesn’t completely disable the anti theft system, only the motion sensors on the cabin.
if you lock it and you move inside it will go off, my dad used to let me lock the car with me inside and it would trigger the alarm lol
>What's that button do?
It prevents alien abduction

A thread where you can ask dumb stuff
I'll start: if solid axle is by far the strongest and easiest to manufacture suspension setup would it be possible to minimize it to be the lightest?
I'm not saying it should be used in racing, where isolating each stress is more important, just purely as a low cost shitbox technology

Do you think you can find a frame in decent condition at a junkyard? By decent condition I mean not terribly rusted and a metal worker could get it structurally sound without too much effort.
Hi guys, I have a question.
My car (4 speed automatic) has an "O/D Off" feature. I virtually never drive on the highway because everything I need is so close.
Since I'm not driving at highway speeds, should I leave overdrive off to eliminate unnecessary shifting? I feel keeping it in third, which runs at a 1:1 ratio, is the simplest and would result in the less wear and tear over all.
What do you recommend?
My hometown and the surrounding areas are completely flat, no steep slopes of any kind, and this sort of environment is all I've experienced Recently I've been sent out on work to a very "hilly" city, going up and down streets of significant inclines. I've even had to park on these streets.

So here's my stupid question. When I'm parked on a steep incline and start my car, when I put it into Drive and let my foot off the brake, why doesn't my car start rolling backwards? I AM VERY THANKFUL THAT MY CAR DOESN'T ROLL BACKWARDS, that would be scary as fuck, but I don't understand the mechanism that is preventing that from happening.
I think it's the torque converter that just let's through enough to not slip backwards. If you are on a level road and you put it in drive, you start rolling as well right?
T. Manual fag
>If you are on a level road and you put it in drive, you start rolling as well right?
Yeah, that's right. It will coast forward on its own if my foot isn't on the brake.

Pic rel is my new SLO badge. I think it's a made up badge to poke fun at the WRX and Sti cars with a "slow" badge for non WRX cars but maybe it stands for Subaru Legacy Outback? Not sure if I want a subaru badge too or just leave it like it is.

So I have a pic related and it's my fourth one. I love these bugeyes. I've had other cars (Lexus, Hondas) but I keep coming back to these. The problem is I think I'm falling into the "repair is always cheaper than a new car" fallacy. I keep throwing 500 here 500 there to keep the daily running and that quickly adds up. Would it be worth it to go into d*bt for a current gen WRX or the generation prior? These bugeyes are almost 20 years old now and they're starting to get hard to find and expensive.
>inb4 $3000 civic
I actually /need/ awd where I live and the only cheap awd cars are Subarus and suv's

Nobody "needs" anything more than a Mitsubishi Mirage to go get groceries and commute either. I can afford something a little nicer though, so fuck off with your "don't need" bullshit.
No. These are the desirable cars. The modern ones value will fall off the face of a cliff while these maintain or appreciate in value. Modern Subarus are for Karens and everyone knows it.
>modern WRXs value will fall off a cliff
Very doubtful. The FA20 is the best engine Subaru has put in the WRX. It doesn't matter which gen though, WRXs hold their value quite well.
If you’ve gone through multiple WRX’s you’re probably fairly old, and you can’t afford to buy a new one, or even a last gen one? I would get a Kia Rio and focus on your career for a little bit
He could have just kept buying them at 150k usually people sell them when they get to spun bearing territory
