  1. EV's... Rolling Blackouts in 115 F. Heat

    Because in the fall, winter and spring it’s awesome. Hardly any snow. I can think of a few good reasons. I’m originally from the North East and I’m slowly learning about adapting to this environment. I wear long sleeve solar shirts and hoodies in 100+ degree weather (sun is relentless). Always...
  2. EV's... Rolling Blackouts in 115 F. Heat

    Where’s that one Californucator that gave Texas shit for the February grid issues 🤔 Looks like we are in the same boat, dude. Let’s see what state keeps their power on longer this summer 🍺
  3. Here's Why the Ford Lightning Electric Truck is Genius

    100 percent electrification appeals to me because of the reliability factor of the motors - and also less fluids to worry about. Should be less trips to the dealer. I love that there’s such a thing as Tesla, because they seem to push boundaries, and seem to be in the lead with battery tech and...
  4. Sweet spot for best MPG

    unfortunately most of us live in a state where the speed limit is significantly higher than 55 mph. Maybe not unfortunately, given that you can reach your destination faster, but as far as fuel mileage is concerned. I’ve got to live in two states with my F150 2.7 crew cab and have seen the...
  5. Do ya’ll turn your AC off before turning truck off?

    I didn’t end up getting the time off that I wanted so I’m postponing until October. By the looks of the weather report it looks like a blessing in disguise! 😂 the hottest I experienced was 113 before and that was brutal. My truck temperature reached 127 after work. I cannot even imagine how hot...
  6. Do ya’ll turn your AC off before turning truck off?

    Yep, can’t forget about the fishing! And your governor passed one of the most bad assed laws when it comes to rioting. If I ever get down your way fishing is definitely on my priority list!
  7. Do ya’ll turn your AC off before turning truck off?

    hahahahaha, Floridians are crazy. I don’t know how you can stand the extreme humidity mixed with heat. And your guys’ creepy crawlers are next level. I thought the Mojave Rattlers were scary - you guys might as well be the Australia of the United States as far as I’m concerned 😂 Although you’ve...
  8. Do ya’ll turn your AC off before turning truck off?

    I love the warm weather, but for some reason once I travel past Abilene I’m like “shit it’s humid here” lol. I camped just south of San Antonio 2 years ago and slept in the bed of my truck and I was beading sweat at 3am 😂 The hill country is nice though and probably where I will end up...
  9. Do ya’ll turn your AC off before turning truck off?

    One thing I absolutely love about the south west is the abundance of sunshine and dry weather. And the desert has its own beauty that I’ve come to appreciate. I’ve always heard Albuquerque has perfect weather because of the elevation. I’ve yet to get over there to visit. Ive Actually acclimated...
  10. Do ya’ll turn your AC off before turning truck off?

    west Texas? Dry heat, low humidity, plenty of jobs, lots of recreational land for sale by El Paso. Let’s go halves on 50 to 100 acres so we can have our own shooting range lol. We can get hot but nowhere near your guys’ level. The highest we hit last year was 113. Plus it gets pretty comfy at...
  11. Maverick

    Can’t lie. I’m really curious about the Maverick. The small 4ft (or 4.5 I forget) box would come in handy if I decided to get a topper to maximize storage. The 2.0 AWD and 4000 tow limit is OKAY. All for under 30K. I will be paying attention when the reviews come out. I’m already set on the next...
  12. If Buying Today, Would You Still Buy the Ranger?

    I was going to say it. Having test driven the Tacoma before, how could anyone live with the thing just for the seating position alone. Might as well just take out the seat and sit on the floor lol. At least youd Have more head room too.
  13. Gas Mileage @ 65mph

    i get why there’s 75 mph speed limits here, it’s so wide open and the state is huge. But I do miss my comfortable, relaxed drives in NY with the 55 mph and amazing gas mileage in a truck. When I drive back home, I exit I20 right around Sweetwater and make my way up to Lawton Oklahoma. In...
  14. Surprised by my gas mileage

    No worries and I understand what you mean. I always at least went the speed limit, sometimes 59 or 60. I would always make sure I was in 10th and keep it there so it didn’t down shift. A lot of times I did use cruise control too. makes me wonder what the 5.0 F150 would have done with those...
  15. Does anyone care what Scotty Kilmer thinks?

    I’ll admit, I watch him. For entertainment purposes only. Mostly when he does the mailbag and responds and you get the images in the corner.
  16. Surprised by my gas mileage

    Damn, some of you guys who get low 20’s must really love the pep of the Ranger lol. Back in NY while I was commuting 52 miles one way to work, it was all county and state highways, the highest speed limit was 55mph, and always very little traffic. I miss roads like that and get homesick for...
  17. Surprised by my gas mileage

    I run exclusively 91 in my truck in West Texas. The last few days we have had triple digits and the next few it’s going to be 106-108 degrees. Sitting in stop and go traffic and liberal acceleration, I need all the octane I can get. Plus it’s forced induction, I’ve never run anything below 89 in...
  18. Electric F150 Lightning

    That’s awesome and thank you for the information. Greatly appreciated. Arizona seems beautiful. What a damn shame some “people” like to move in and change areas. I will never understand it. I feel like sort of a hypocrite considering because I’m an upstate NY’er - but the whole appeal to moving...
  19. Electric F150 Lightning

    By the way, what part of AZ are you in? How do you like it? I’m going over in a few weeks and it’s my first time. Want to see more of NM and AZ. I might have to flock away from Texas eventually and escape all the city folk moving in and changing Tejas lol. AZ has to have its fair share of...
  20. Electric F150 Lightning

    I want ONE more truck before I move to a full E-vehicle. And I’ve already 💯 cemented my decision on the next gen Ranger. I would effing love a Ranger Raptor with the 2.7 PHEV I honestly think the 2.7 is the best engine Ford has made to date. Guys scoff at that, but it’s proving itself. I’m...
