      There is actually a small market for stuff like this. I have a friend who lives on Catalina Island, and they basically make it super hard/expensive to bring new cars onto the island, or to register a...

      New trucks are getting ridiculous with the height of the beds. i've been curious as to why for a long time. I'm 6' 3" and even I have a hard time getting something over the side of my Dad's '14...

      Definitely the van then. Those SCUBA tanks get heavy, and lifting them in and out of the bed of a truck would get miserable.

      Never said they had to get rid of the cars, just that as the car gets older the registration gets more expensive, say maybe up to a max amount, and there would be inspection/emission requirements on...

      I've never understood why older cars get exempted from stuff like this. If you're looking to improve air quality, then the old cars with primitive emissions equipment need to be the first to go....

      E85 is noting more than a corn subsidy scam. Waste of taxpayer money.


      Also, letting the gas cap touch the paint, when there is a holder built into the fuel door? Poor form.

      I used to have a GLI and a Kawasaki Z1000. Then I bought a Jeep Wrangler, and found myself never riding the bike. Taking the top and doors off is as close as you'll get to a motorcycle, Wranglers are...

      The other reasons are really negligible, maybe accounting for like 5-10% of the change, but the other 90% is due to the denser air requiring more gas to keep the combustion ratio optimal.

      Actually, it's probably because they know Wrangler's have great resale value and they know they can make a quick buck flipping them. There is a used car dealer here in Des Moines that ONLY sells...

      I say do it!


      If you're shopping for a Sport S trim level, you may benefit from looking into the Willy's trim. It's a really appealing package and has a lot of the stuff that comes in the Sport...

      For that money you should be able to find a nice 4.0 one, in stock form. Why would you want to buy something that has a special procedure just to drive it?

      Here's one:

      I'm assuming you mean JKU on the Wrangler. Otherwise, the 2 door has very little cargo space.


      I'd cap the Taco. Resale value is too good to jump ship because you don't need a truck. As soon as...

      I'm in Des Moines, IA, and I'm pretty observant of cars, but I had never seen one. Symptom of a small market I guess.

      Rare Spec of a Common Car

      Saw this thing today, never knew they made one of these. Second Generation Ford Focus, two door, SES. It's a very weird body style, of a very sub-par car. Two doors, but no hatch, just a small trunk....

      Not at all.

      I'm in Des Moines, IA, and FWD in my GLI was more than sufficient. You might struggle going out right after 6" fell and the plows haven't gotten out yet, but that is rare. I'm pretty...
