      As mentioned the FORD logos front and rear seem really tacky. Almost anything would be better.

      That said I think the truck overall is badass and would be what I'd get. The RAM Rebel is a lame...

      We picked up a 2014 Santa Fe Sport. I'd say it meets all your criteria. For us we needed something with a real transmission - no CVT - because they can't tow anything bigger than a carrier for your...

      I'm not sure about this. There would be more moving parts with more pieces to fail. You also really don't really have a weight advantage. A GenV SBC 6.2 is right around 500lbs dry (from what I can...

      I didn't even notice the kit. Just the red. I'm not sure my wife would go for the color but I still think it looks good. You're right about the kit tho. I could do without it. An RS4 front clip would...

      How many miles on your Super Cab? I believe that's what we're looking at... SuperCab FX4. No Sync or anything fancy like that. Front bench.

      Wow. It looks like they put more effort into the font for Mirai than they did anything else. It looks like a DJ or someone wearing a headband with a little goatie or something.

      That is one of the...

      What was the problem with the brakes? I know you know this but it's a little concerning that there was a problem to begin with (wasn't that caught when they brought it in???) and that their first...

      In California I know several people who have Solar City-ified homes and would have all the transfer hardware and infrastructure in place. If they also had existing Plug-in Prius then I don't know how...

      Or the use of his truck until such time as the vehicle they're selling is in working condition.

      To get to those specific numbers you'd need to know the house and the efficiency of the motor/how much power it produces.

      To my understanding...
      Toyota has taken a Prius and replaced the...

      Power your house?! That's kind of awesome. Combined with the free fuel and Cali only availability it could be a way to cut costs in other ways - especially if you could feed back to the grid. lol

      Wow. Lots of stuff.

      The concern for us with the EB would be the out of warranty issue and Ford's past history with their Powerstrokes blowing up and all kinds of related issues. Time will tell if...

      Cost benefit long term would be interesting. A C2D idles around 80-90W while a new i3 or i5 idles down in the low 40s and maxes around 80-90 and that's with a video card. If you do onboard your power...
