Road trips are a miserable waste of time and a headache compared to flying and if I'm going to be forced to go on one I want it to pass as comfortably and quietly as possible, and apparently Genesis are currently contending for the title of the most advanced active noise cancelling offered in any car, and I have little doubt the ride quality is similarly advanced.

Excellent choice. Just curious, what rear does that have? Later 3/4 ton squarebodies seemed to always use the semi-floating 14 bolt, but I've heard that some earlier or towing-equipped ones might have used the full floater or a Dana 60.

My 60s grain truck. Only problem is that it gets like 15 miles to the gallon, tops. But the grain box has quite a bit of space, unfortunately not the sturdiest but I could find some solution for that. Maybe I could even put some sort of top over it.
I’ve always wanted to take it up somewhere, maybe if gas ever goes down I will.

>>25611504
About 50k. Its going cross country soon, so about to add a decent amount

>>25611557
Its very slow and underpowered, but you end up feeling like that one biker pepe infront of the wagie wojacks in cars, so that's a plus.

Despite the /o/ memes, a rental v6 challenger. Drive it like you stole it in town and it’s good for eating up highway miles. Relatively comfy. Big trunk.
I would never own one though

kys faggot I am not taking the vax to get a passport.
I am not getting on a public vehicle to be next o jose, trannys, and other undesirables.

Instead I can cruse in a car or on a bike, stop whenever, and have the freedom to do whatever I want in transit.

VZ-SSV sedan (or wagon) with the 6.0 LS
-or-
2008 Ford Territory, or ba/bf wagon
Legendary 4.0 i6 Barra, wagon, decent highway mpg, lot's of power to overtake, enough room in the rear for a single mattress + gear. Comes in an awd (territory) version if you want to sacrifice some mpg for dirt roads or light off-roading. Known to be ultra reliable, very simple, and parts cheap and freely available.

>Helping my dad fix up this '71 LTD which just needs a new gas tank. When we were picking it up from our friend dad told him we were going to drive it around the country and he just laughed at him.
my gf bought one of the 30 year old 22re toyota minivans with her meager hippy work earnings and her dad said she cant drive it around cuase its too old and will fail on her and convinced her to sell it and spend more money on a ford transit. then the transmission went out on the transit a couple months later at 40k mi
the new transmission cost more than the 22re van.
and then we kept getting locked out of it cuase the power doors auto lock while were hanging out in the woods.
and then something else total'd the engine a year later after we broke up.
