Cold front came through and dropped temps into the 40's with wind and rain. Over a 40 degree drop from yesterday.

We still have the 2010 Escape for now, probably will sell it after the beginning of the year


The new RX350 is stuffed full of tech features, we're stiill trying to learn it all.


I won't go into the full details of it, but it is a 3 year lease, and Lexus is contributing a large portion of the payment because I'm Lexus Master Certified now

Very nice car. i just don't like leases.

unless you are the type that likes a new car every 3 years , i just don't get.

i like a new car every 3 years, but I love a car that is paid for.

I totally agree, but with Lexus picking up most of the payment, its hard not to pass up

A guy I work with bought a brand new '17 F-150. I was climbing around in it checking it out, and it seemed... puny. The cab felt cramped, like the dash was right up in my chest and the roof was low. All the buttons and window switches seem tiny too. Even the back seat room (crew cab) didn't feel as impressive as the previous gen. Are the cabs in the new trucks smaller than the 09-14? On the outside, too, it felt smaller. The bedrails and body didn't seem as muscular. It was kinda disappointing. When I got in my truck afterward it felt so much roomier on the inside and had more of a commanding presence on the outside. Is this just my imagination? I'm not saying I need some big macho truck, but I'd rather not sacrifice space and comfort if I trade this thing in.

I find the cab on my '17 Super Duty has lots of room and they are supposed to share the cab section with the new 150's. Maybe time to check out the F-250's!!

Ruby got a little make over. What y'all think?

Before


And After









I think it gives it a more modern look! Overall very happy with it. Even though i want to kick the ford engineer in the nuts for the way they mounted the heads .

12th gen was like a 5 minute job. This one was about a hour per side

I think the 15+ is a tiny bit bigger cab than the 09-14 IIRC

Imo they are bigger inside. With the 12th gen i could reach my son sitting in the back seat. With the 13th gen i cant reach him. The whole truck seems bigger to me.
