    Which EV would you buy?

    It has a hybrid mode. There is a gas only mode, an electric only mode and then a hybrid mode. Rated at 50 mpg equivalent. It does seem overly complicated for FCA but I appreciate their effort. Meanwhile Toyota, who is the king of hybrids, just adds new colors to the 4runner/Tacoma. 4xe makes me...

    Which EV would you buy?

    Wrangler 4xe PHEV drops Thursday with availability in December. I wish more companies were investing in PHEV models.

    Nissan to Nissan: traded my X for a V8 Pathy

    I recently finished a trip in a 07 V6 Pathfinder from Washington to Kansas with three adults, two dogs, and some extra stuff because I was moving. I have a hitch rack though which really opened up the interior space. Spent about 3 days on BLM/forest roads and the stock ABLS proved sufficient...

    Thoughts on the current generation Armada / Infiniti QX80

    My local dealership (Olympia, WA) is running a little over 10% off MSRP right now on their Armadas.

    Thoughts on the current generation Armada / Infiniti QX80

    No, but it certainly would be nice if the Armada got the Patrol running gear aka beefier diffs and lockers

    Thoughts on the current generation Armada / Infiniti QX80

    The Armada runs the same front diff, R180, as the V6 R51 (2005-2012) Pathfinder. The rear diff is the R230 which was in the old Armada and V8 Pathys. The R180 have some known weaknesses/limitations but I haven't heard of any issues with the R230. @leeleatherwood 's build thread (Page 1, Post...

    Xterra Pro4X Build - Offroad Adventuring

    Nice find. What's your general plan beyond the tires and wheels for the build? Big fan of all those Zs! Also I just saw your instagram post about the Uprev tuner. I had no idea it was that effective on our VQ40s.

    r50 vs 1st gen xterra

    Well then I would purchase the cleanest, best condition vehicle in your price range, X or R50. The Pathfinder is definitely more road oriented, stock and the X, "outdoorsy". Looking at this thread though I would hardly consider the Pathy unfit for modification.

    r50 vs 1st gen xterra

    I think you won't go wrong with either. There are great builds of both platforms on here. If I was leaving NY and could wait to buy a vehicle, I would. Rust sucks.

    Canadians... What's it really like?

    Given the Trudeau quote and my question, "twist the facts" is an interest choice of words. I find it disingenuous to act like a semi auto in 223 can only be used for killing people. That's patently false. I'm interested in how this all plays out for you all.

    Canadians... What's it really like?

    “These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only — only to kill the largest amount of people in the shortest amount of time,” Trudeau said. (https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2020/05/justin-trudeau-bans-all-assault-weapons-in-canada/) Isn't allowing some to continue to use...
