    yes, actually we are looking at the plug in hybrid. Before we bought the outback, we test drove a rav4 and it felt cheap, but that was back like 8 years ago

    That's actually not as much of a moonshot as you'd think. I sold those wheels two years ago for $400 and stock tires for like $370. I could see a decent $600+ offer easily enough since they're a slightly bigger tire. Beats the $400 offers the "experts" here will tell you're they're worth. :rolleyes: You'll get some hilarious messages too demanding you research if it fits their 1982 Trekker or something of the like.

    Worst case, use a penny and then measure the depth like that.

    Not sure what the prime is..my wife had a 2005 for 11 years, loved it. Currently a 2014 and she's thrilled.

    How many miles do you get to a tank on your Dyna? I can get about 150 miles to a tank on my Raider, and I had enough riding after that many miles in a day!

    The prime is plug in hybrid. 90 plus mpgs if you can run on primarily battery. It’s like 40 something miles, and she puts on about 20 a day. I like the fact you still have a gas tank and are not screwed if you don’t plan your charges right. It’s like 40 something MPGs in hybrid mode.

    Ahhh I dig. Can't speak to that feature but can say the Rav4 is a great vehicle. One non-routine problem in 11 years and 110K miles..and it already had 60K when we got it.

    Depends on how im riding.
    I built the motor on the Dyna, the winter before last... but.. 150ish... if I'm getting after it in the mountains(usually means solo), I can drop it down to 100 easy. Gets thirsty very fast...
    My Road king can do 200+ miles easy

    So, pretty much the same as my Raider. If I ride VERY conservatively, I might be able to get 180-190 miles on a tank, but like my truck, I try to fill up around a 1/4 of a tank.

    The toyota/covid tax is a real struggle. i drove 4hrs south to look at three trucks in PA hoping they would be cleaner (carfax showed they were from that area as well).

    1. First truck was very clean. looked like a southern vehicle with minimal salt exposure. Ran well but had a couple issues. Either a wheel bearing or a CV axle was howling from the drivers side, 3 pending CEL codes for 300, 3001, 3002 (misfire codes), back tires were bald. I told him with the CEL and the bald tires it wouldn't pass a safety/emission inspection in NY.
    2. Second truck. They send me pictures, "super clean, just surface rust underneath." the floor pan and body mounts were so rusty, they were soft.
    3. Third truck. Horrible paint. clear coat was gone and the surface felt like emery cloth. it started to rain during my test drive. i used to shirt sleeve to try to rub down the paint to see if it was just grime. My shift sleeve started to turn white! The paint was transferring to my sleeve as a scrubbed on it like old vinyl siding. Under the hood, the paint was all flaked away with just the primer left.
    all three of these were at name brand dealerships (dodge, nissan, and toyota).
    This Pro 4X Xterra is looking like a pretty solid vehicle pending a test drive.

    either that or the frontier might be a better choice at this point. They don’t rust as much and tend to be a bit cheaper. And are also great trucks.

    They’re filming the new Dexter a couple miles up from my house this week. Took an extra 10 minutes to get home from work this morning because of all the traffic at base camp.

    Decent week ahead of us boys! Weather is gonna be nice. Pollen is brutal though!

    Yesterday went fishing off Scituate, caught as many haddock as can fit in the cooler. About 20 of them, shoulda brought a second cooler. Look how calm it was, we are 5 miles offshore at about 10:30am:

    Dying over here. I'm down in RI near the water, that's been helping a bit. But yesterday I went up to Needham and sat in my sister's back yard, only after being out there a while did I realize - we were sitting UNDER a flowering tree. Tree polen is what gets me. I was jacked up for like an hour. Switched my alergy meds this morning though, the ones I were taking felt like they weren't doing shizz. And added a decongestant. This year has been kicking my ass.

    Yeah, the cost difference is insane. A comparable frontier to tacoma is 30-40% cheaper. the xterra/frontier isn't great looking and the xterra, especially, is very plastic-y

    If it was a practical decision, I would be in a 2019 or older frontier any day of the week over my Tacoma. I bought the Tacoma because I always wanted one. Next truck will probably be not a Tacoma. Not sold on the new drivetrain on the frontier, the 2019s were slick though. When I was looking I probably could have saved 10k if I bought a '19 Frontier over a '20 Tacoma. Replace the head unit for <500 bucks, and good to go forever.

    Someone did out the maths on reddit too - the Tacoma is more fuel efficient. But we're talking like 1-2 MPG difference in the 19-20 MPG neighborhood, so the math said that it would take like 250k-300k miles before the Tacoma is worth it with the higher up front cost.

    Welcome to the 6+ tire rotation club.. I'm about to get my 8th tire so I can start phasing one pair out that is running too low for my interests.. it looks like tire rack in my loft since I have an additional 6 tires for the truck for my 265 setup that I only apparently use for inspection now haha.

    BRUTAL! I was outside the other day, it was like it was snowing in my yard, big, huge clumps of that white fluffy pollen. You could literally see it just pulling off the trees in a slight breeze. I don't know when tree pollen season is over- hopefully soon?
