I wonder where they are going to ship those new vehicles coming off the assembly lines. Dealer lots are full, no one is buying cars, and there is literally no where to park/store any more vehicles.

But, the upside is it should be a really great time to buy a new car/truck what with the glut of vehicles sitting on the lots.
Nope people are buying cars like normal and maybe even a bit more than they were, dealerships are pretty busy believe it or not

I have used OfferUp for a bunch of car parts. I do get a lot of dudes that say they'll take it and never come. Oh well it always sells eventually on there

Whistlin Diesel has some great videos if you understand that these trucks are just material items. some of them are retarded like the 300 hood stack video but I do enjoy him just beating the living hell out of those trucks, fun stuff.

Yeah me neither. Just had to get a 5.3 for my buddy's Suburban. He bought it for $700 fully loaded but with no engine. Ended up buying a 5.3 for about $1900 and I could not believe it.

No NBS 5.3s are like $500 lol

I sold my 5.3 with 220k that was in great condition for $400, but that was without the engine harness computer etc that most places will give you, as well as it was somewhat torn down.

I agree it is slowing down a bit. Same with used car market, prices are still up but I saw some cars and trucks average level out slightly

Single cabs are a different market than the rest of the truck world. I see absolutely trash boxes sell for $7k easily. Buddy found a very nice 84k mile 2001 Green single cab Sierra with a 5.3 and power interior for $3k off an older couple. Sold it for $10k.

$10,000 for a single cab short bed, that truck has no use but it is a younger market that is going to continuously drive truck prices through the rough especially in the DFW area. That is why my next truck will be coming from anywhere but Texas and California. The truck culture here and there has caused the prices to sky rocket.

Only the newer trucks have the 5'8" CC bed. The NBS trucks have the same bed size 6'6".

I mean yes it is useful but it is the LEAST useful lol

Ah yeah double checking that it is the Extended cab that are still 6'6"

But my point still stands, you can have an extended cab with more than likely a bigger engine, same size bed, bigger cab, better amenities for cheaper than a regular cab WT V6. My friends truck is a bit of an odd example but I can show you all day long how ext cabs are valued less than RCSB trucks

Again I am NOT saying RCSBs are not useful, but it is odd that those trucks are so much more in comparison to an extended cab or crew

I thought that was just a feature of Dodges?

Are yall going to replace the truck or since it happened that is kind of the end of owning a truck for your old man?
My great grandmother had something similar happen albeit not as fiery, her old Cadillac had a flat and so my uncle picked the car up to go take it to get fixed and it never returned :lol:

Never used an electric mower but I have used the electric weed eater/edger combo and blower from Ryobi. The blower was great no complaints. The edger/weed-eater combo was awful. The line would constantly pop out and you'd have to rewind it. I used another Ryobi edger that was pretty garbage too as it had zero power behind it.

Finally convinced my old man to go electric and get a Makita edger and blower. I've only used the blower and it was fine. The batteries seem to have a short life but that could just be me.

The one with low power was a cheaper model. The one with the line issue was a higher end model.

I will only use electric now, no reason to do gas anymore. I would try maybe an electric mower but I currently have a self driving one that you just walk behind and push a lever down to set the speed.

100% manageable. It is lighter than a gas one for sure but it has been a while since I actually did any yard work so I couldn't say by how much. Normally I used the bigger 4 hour battery pack or whatever it was (back when I was mowing lawns and stuff) so that does make a difference. If you have a small yard you can get away with the smaller battery pack and I know for certain it is lighter by a lot.
