  1. What's Your Other Ride?

    Love that green. It's an improvement over my jasmine green metallic
  2. What's Your Other Ride?

    My newfie fits comfortably in our Forester. I want to get side steps for him for the Colorado, though :P

    Haven't tried Ford Pass, but I'm happy with the functionality and info from My Chevy. Although it keeps yelling at me because it's been an Arctic freeze for like 3 weeks and my pressure is low, lol

    Not that anyone asked, but I'll give an update after 700 miles for those curious. Things I like: V6 provides strong, consistent performance. Auto 4WD. Very responsive and confidence inspiring. MPG: averaging low 20s so far on winter gas and temperatures between -15 and 20F since I've owned it...

    I lived in Colorado for a few years, I know the effect of altitude well :) Turbo or bust up there. In the sticks where I live, there are more F-150s and Silverados than there are people (primarily those two brands as well here)... So I shouldn't have trouble rehoming this guy to a Chevy nut in...

    It's def not a modern interior, but the infotainment tech is solid and the seats are comfy. The heated steering wheel is a godsend lol.

    LED headlamps were something I really wanted, so that's a conversion I'll have to make happen eventually.

    You just don't cross some lines ?

    My new 2014 Forester had 8 miles on it but it came all the way from Japan, so that's fair. So happy to get it without a bunch of random customer farts already loaded into the seats.

    But... It can't hit me. It's got a factory damper and I'm agile ;)

    A diesel zr2 would be a ton of fun, but that's like the unicorn of unicorns haha. This is just a gas z71, but I'm impressed with the power plant so far... Until I start tracking MPG after break in :P

    Here's hoping! I'm in love with the 6th gen but we couldn't operate with a single car for that long. Never thought I'd end up with a Colorado after not liking them twice... Guess this one was meant for me :P

    Thanks! It even had the chips for the heated steering wheel, seats, and rear sensors. Lucked into finding this one in transit.

    Was really hoping to build a 2022 Ranger or wait for the redesign, but my wife's car blew up just before Christmas and it put us in a bind. The net result was getting a Colorado Z71 that I caught in transit in this spiffy sand dune color. Not exactly what I wanted, but it came with a damper...
  15. Gen 6 Grill

    My wife thinks my Forester looks like all sorts of things. To non-car people they all seem to blend together. The grills do share a hexagon shape, I suppose :)
  16. Ranger compared to Subaru in snow

    Same platform, but might be built in Indiana now. Mine came from Japan with 8 miles on it and has been a golden child lol. *knock on all surface materials*
  17. Why Is The Mileage So Bad On The Tremor?

    I drive almost 80 miles a day. 20-23 gallons would be the sweet spot for me.
  18. Why Is The Mileage So Bad On The Tremor?

    Aerodynamics, chonky tires, extra weight, and driving style. Check out the ZR2, its EPA rating is even worse lol. Ranger suffers from a class-worst fuel tank size, which is a bummer. Everyone else offers 20-21.x gallon tanks.
  19. Ranger compared to Subaru in snow

    Yeah they've really filled their niche nicely. Around the '13-14 model years they caught up in interior quality too. No more flimsy tin can doors, either :)
  20. Ranger compared to Subaru in snow

    BTW Subarus have a permanent AWD system, not part time, which is part of what makes them awesome.
