Truck Nuts

Recommended Posts

I think the Ridgeline platform is linked to the Pilot. They went away from the funky angle walled sides of the bed to a more conventional looking bed (front still looks like a current model CRV or Pilot). I got the 4wd and I don’t think the towing capacity was that different from the Tacoma, good for a small trailer, jet ski, etc. As I said originally, the selling point was a roomier interior and better (classier?) options than I’d get with Tacoma for the same money. It also has this full size, lockable, waterproof  trunk hidden under the bed. Didn’t give much of a shit when I bought it, now it’s one of my favorite features so I can still haul around grocery bags, straps, jumper cables, random shit without junking up the back seat of my cab. 
 

19-21 mpg has been underwhelming though.

That is the best style, color, and graphics package they ever did imo. I’m not really a taco guy, but this truck is bad ass. Always loved that one, particularly. 

McFly!

I’m finally getting my spray in bed liner and bakflip cover. So excited 

I’m getting anxious about upgrading the suspension, slap some 33’s in there.

Loved that truck.  Of course, at the time, my preference still ran more toward something like this:

1984-chevrolet-k-10-4x4

The Fall Guy and Invasion USA Chuck Norris agree !

What suspension shocks will you end up going with?

Saw this today and it looked pretty sweet (stance/height).

I was thinking about lifting the front of mine, but the rake works well for towing, which is really why I bought the truck.  So I'm a little torn.

 

(But willing to be swayed by the fine folks on this Forum :) )

2020 SuperDuty facelift looks legit. Still can't stomach $60-70k for a truck. 

 

i never thought i'd drop $50k for a truck 

i remember several years back being somewhere and they had new trucks out on display. i told my buddy 'man if i had fuck you money, id drop $54k on a denali truck !'

I'm glad I wised up and a got a King Ranch instead

How's that?  Our Denali has been a great truck.

Easy 70k for well equipped.  I was pricing 250's last week and $74.5 was best i was seeing on a KR on a '20.  Down from 83k sticker.  I'd prefer a 350 single wheel but not going to pay the premium for it.  5 years ago when a loaded one was 55k, yeah, but not a chance now.  My buddy ordered his '17 KR and got out for 70, back when they first came out.  I thought that was crazy but looks like they took another bump since then.

@texas08  What is the thought process behind building a raptor in lieu of grabbing a factory one?  Even better components, cheaper, other?    I've never really looked into the Raptors in detail as they wouldn't work great for what I do, but just curious. 

Truck looks great btw.
