      I'd vote get a real truck that fits the bill and a company show piece that does light duty branding stuff. Either way I approve, great idea.

      Why isn't engine naming more popular? Tornado? Hurricane? Go-Devil? Dauntless? Typhoon? Jeep seems to do it and very few others. Example my CX-5 with the "PY-VPS" 2.5L Skyactiv - refers to the...

      ^^ I was going to post those tires. They are "BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2" I ran them on my Jetta and yes they are M+S rated. I can confirm they are nearly USELESS in the snow.

      Real snow tires are like driving on marshmallows. Think old truck/Jeep steering feel where you can get 1/4 turn before much of any "response". Where snow tires win is all out terrible, icy, slushy,...

      Oh... some apps have an over lay that prevents touches. It looks like a lock and a bunch of arrows. Slide the lock out of the circle. I've only noticed it on games.
