My car is part of the recall 2017
I got a notice in the mail that my 2017 Kia Soul EV has been recalled. It has 2 of the 3 signs in the letter of having the problem. My car is supposed to get 93 miles to a charge and I get around 70… it cannot and will not charge past 90%.. and sometimes I can be in my car and it’ll read example 32 miles one moment then 38 the next with no change in environment. I am going to call the KIA Roadside Assistance but in the mean time can I drive my car to and from work? It’s just like 3 minutes away. Picture of the recall added for more info on it.. i cropped out my personal info.

2023.06.06 04:33 I_T_Burnout Need advice on what to do with my mom.

Hi all,
My mom is 77 y/o. My dad passed away 9 years ago and ever since she hasn't been the same person. She constantly talks about him, specifically the day he died, how he died (of a heart attack), every little detail. She practically relives it over and over and again.
When he died, she lost his social security which is normal and to be expected. I borrowed about $5,000 from her in 2015 and had been paying her slowly back until 3 years ago. I go to visit her one night in 2020 and she asks me if she could have some extra on top of what I usually was giving her. I tell her I should be able to and ask how much. She say's "all of it." I'm like, mom, what have you done?
That was the beginning of a journey into hell. It turns out that she worked up $30,000 in credit card debt, then went and got a home equity line of credit or HELOC against her house. She paid that 30k in CC debt off, then maxed out those very same credit cards again to the tune of another 30k and then maxed out her 50k HELOC. So all told, she amassed a total of $110,000 in debt with only $1,500 in social security income per month. 30k the first time, 30k again and 50k in HELOC.
Ever since I've been supplementing her income. I almost always buy her groceries, pay her internet and TV bill, pay for any repairs around the house. If its broken I fix it and if I can't fix it I replace it or have it repaired. I've become very handy around the house so to speak.
I'm hemorrhaging cash. For instance, on top of her internet/TV/other bills I help with I just cut her a check for $400 Thursday 06/01. Today, Monday 06/05 she tells me she needs more money. She acts like I'm made out of money. She belittles me, saying things like "You don't know how much it costs to live." People, I'm 46, married with 5 people including myself under my own roof. I am the sole provider for my family. I KNOW how much it costs to live. We ourselves have a HELOC. She has asked me if I could draw against it to help her. I refuse to go into debt to solve hers and have told her as much. This month it was $400, last month she asked me for $839. She didn't get $839. Its never $20 or $50 or even a $100. Its always hundreds of dollars she needs.
I requested to have myself added as an authorized signer on her checking account. She refused to do so. "She can pay her own bills." Yeah with my money! She can't even tell me where $110,000 went or how she spent it!! If I had spent 110,000 I would have a Silverado 3500 dually in the driveway!! Or a boat, something!!
Her debt is: 50k HELOC 5k unsecured bank loans 6k Amazon Chase CC 1k Hospital bill
She's broke and she's breaking me. This situation has driven a wedge between us as big as the Grand Canyon and I hate it.
She's angry all the time. Angry with me. You should hear some of the things that come out of her mouth. She's bitter. She's bitter at life, she's bitter at me. She's soooo mad and it shows. And I can't help her any more than I already am but it's never enough. I have 2 homesteads to maintain now. I just had hand surgery and am all bandaged up and today she says "I need you to help me. I need help. When are you going to fix this light?" I had surgery Friday and she calls me Saturday asking me to go the grocery store for her. I'm like, no, I'm not going anywhere for a few days mom. You'll just have to go yourself this time. Its not going to hurt you.
I don't know what to do. I'm running out of options. She's so mean and hateful and all I'm trying to do is help as much as I can. I want her happy and I don't want her to lose the house (THEN WHAT!??!?) so I help physically and financially to the very best of my ability.
I'm lost. I'm tired and I'm hurt. What would you do? I never dreamed I would have this kind of problem after dad died.
Thank you for your time.

2023.06.05 22:23 johnboy11a I have never had a more appropriate picture for this sub!

I have never had a more appropriate picture for this sub!
Okay, so for those who like math. That trailer empty is probably between 5000 and 5500 lbs. I see 10 6x6x16 pressure treated posts, which on the light side are generally about 225 lbs. those look like a dozen 2x8 or 2x10 deck boards, but we will go on the light side and say 2x8x16, which are at least 80lbs each. Then there are at least 12 80# bags of sakrete.
So, factoring everything on the light side, there is at least 4200lbs, and that’s if there isn’t anything else we can’t see. So, with the weight of the trailer, there is a really good chance that there is 10k behind that jeep.
Towing capacity on a jeep of that era is 3500 lbs. And as you can see in the one pic, the lights weren’t even plugged in, so definitely no trailer brakes! And this was about a mile from a steep downhill stretch.
The only person that deserves to be smacked more than the guy driving is the person at the lumber yard that let that happen.

2023.06.05 03:50 -CallMeWanderer How to get out from under a truck payment?

2015 Chevy Silverado LTZ. Owe $32k on it. Trying to figure out how to get out from under it and into something at least half the price. I have never done this process before so I'm seeking advice here.
I'm thinking I will have to sell it for less and pay the difference. But then how do we get into something else at the same time? It's our only vehicle, so we have to have another ready to go when we do sell it. We will have to finance another car, we don't have enough to buy something outright. We are hoping to find something at least half the amount of this truck.
Can someone help me out with how this works? Can you finance a vehicle when you already have a loan on another? Or will we have to close this current loan then finance another? (just not sure how long that would take, we wouldn't be able to wait more than a day or 2 to get into another vehicle)
I know it was a dumb decision, no need to repeat it. That's why I'm trying to get out from under it. We don't have much money at all and are relying on some money from a job transition to try to pull this off. Right now we have $0 in savings but hope to have around $5000 next month.

2023.06.04 23:35 SilveredFlame Should I pull the trigger or wait?

Edit: Decided to pull the trigger! Putting a deposit down tomorrow so they don't sell it while I get the financing together. Thanks all! OP below:
I've been drooling over the Lightning since Ford announced them. Well, the other day the stars mostly aligned and I can get almost everything I want.
Dealer is cutting $7,500 off (they said Ford just put it in place Friday). This is for a 23 Lariat.
I think the only thing the truck doesn't have that I want are the max towing package (so it only tows 8,000lbs vs the 12,000 with max), and the built in scales. It's also not the color I want, but it's my 2nd choice color.
Everything else that matters is there (I can get the bed liner and such easily enough), it's an extended range Lariat, with the options I want.
But it's still Hella expensive, no tax credits (dealer said the lack of tax credit eligibility was why Ford was doing the $7,500 rebate), and I'm just not sure if I should wait.
Chevy announced their electric Silverado had a range of 450 miles, and Dodge's electric Ram is supposed to get up to 500 miles.
Right now Ford has the best priced electric truck on the market (Rivian and Hummer are way more), and so they have effectively no real competition in this space right now. That's going to change very soon with GMC/Chevy and Dodge getting ready to release their trucks.
Now I don't particularly want one of their trucks (though it's hard to argue with those range numbers), but I'm indecisive.
If those trucks drop at a price point comparable to the Lightning or even slightly above, nothing really changes and next year models will probably be more than current ones. The increased competition could also push prices lower and it might be that the 24/25 model years get more range at a lower price.
But they're offering a pretty incredible deal, plus giving me what I wanted for my trade (which is at the top end of what is worth), and I can make the numbers work.
But I'll feel like an idiot if Ford announces that the 2024 trucks will get 450 miles or there's a 10k reduction so that they qualify for rebates.
Gah I'm so indecisive. I want to get off of gas vehicles and this is pretty much my dream truck and I don't want to wait, but the reality is I could wait, and I don't really lose much by waiting (other than not having the truck I really really want).
What do y'all think? What would you do?

2023.06.04 23:30 khoafraelich789 Driven: 2023 Chevrolet Colorado Proves Mid-Size Trucks Don’t Have To Suck

Driven: 2023 Chevrolet Colorado Proves Mid-Size Trucks Don’t Have To Suck

The redesigned Colorado combines a good ride with a nicer interior as well as an all-new turbo engine

Trucks are as American as apple pie, but most of the attention has been focused on the full-size segment. It’s been that way for decades, but smaller trucks have finally stepped into the spotlight.

The Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz revived the long dormant compact segment, while 2023 is shaping up to be the year of the mid-size truck thanks to new entries from Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, and Toyota. That’s a ton of new blood and we haven’t even mentioned the Jeep Gladiator and Nissan Frontier, which are still relatively fresh.

We’re kicking the year off with the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado, which features a fantastic new design, an upgraded interior, and an all-new turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine. However, the biggest news might be value as the truck starts at $29,200 and you can get one with four-wheel drive, adaptive cruise control, a bed liner, and a ton of safety features for under $37,000.

A Sporty And Stylish Design

While there’s a lot going on, there’s no better place to start than styling because designers knocked it out of the park. The model has “big truck energy” and sports an all-new design that echoes the Silverado. However, this is no scaled down copy as the Colorado has a more youthful and athletic appearance, which combines sharp lines with subtle curves.

The resulting design is great and the Colorado is arguably better looking than its larger counterpart. That’s high praise and each trim has a slightly different aesthetic. The entry-level WT is the most basic of the bunch as it sports black components and 17-inch steel wheels. This look is shared with the all-new Colorado Trail Boss, which builds on the WT but adopts a 2-inch (51 mm) lift, a wider front track, and 18-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in 32-inch all-terrain tires.

The Colorado LT is more traditional as it wears body-color components and 17-inch aluminum wheels, while the Z71 combines creature comforts with moderate amounts of off-road capability.

The news isn’t all good as the Colorado is offered exclusively in a crew cab configuration with a 5’ 2” bed. This is a bit of a disappointment as the outgoing model offered extended and crew cab configurations as well as a larger 6’2” bed.

That being said, the redesigned Colorado has a few tricks up its sleeve and one of the most interesting ideas is a lockable, watertight compartment that is integrated into the tailgate. With the tailgate down, you push two levers aside to gain access to a compartment that measures 45 inches (1,143 mm) wide and 4 inches (102 mm) deep. It can be a bit tricky to open, but there’s a decent amount of space and owners could easily stash tow straps and other off-road equipment there.

While the compartment is a little gimmicky, it’s hard to argue with eight standard tie-downs, integrated motorcycle tire grooves, and an available 110-volt power outlet in the bed. The tailgate can also be positioned midway down to aid in transporting longer items, while a dampened EZ-lift and lower tailgate is also available.

An Interior That Doesn’t Scream Cheap

Mid-size trucks are far more affordable than their larger counterparts and this cut-rate pricing is often reflected in the interior. However, the Colorado bucks this trend as drivers will find a significantly improved cabin with better equipment.

The changes are immediately apparent as driver sit behind a chunky steering wheel and find themselves looking at an all-new 8-inch digital instrument cluster. It comes standard and features an assortment of informative displays including an off-road focused setup, which shows pitch and roll as well as the steering angle and current transfer case setting.

Speaking of screens, there’s an 11.3-inch infotainment system with Google integration as well as wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It’s a massive improvement over the old 7- and 8-inch displays, and the system is fast, responsive, and largely intuitive. That being said, we did experience a few hiccups including an instance where music was blasting at startup and the system initially refused to respond to attempts to lower the volume or mute.

Putting the screens aside, the cabin sports a modern design with classy switchgear, gloss black trim, and metallic accents. The amenities vary by trim and things are pretty basic in the WT and Trail Boss. It’s not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but the models eschew a lot of the bright work, padding, and details that make higher-end variants look and feel special. It’s also worth mentioning that, regardless of which trim you get, black plastic is abound and it’s of the hard variety.

Despite being a rough and tumble pickup, the Colorado can dust off its cowboy boots for a night on the town. In particular, the model can be equipped with two-tone heated and ventilated leather front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. While it’s not as fancy as the upcoming GMC Canyon Denali, it’s pretty darn nice for a mid-size truck.

Speaking of the seats, the front chairs are perfectly comfortable and spacious while also offering a good amount of support. Furthermore, the entry-level WT doesn’t cheapen out too much, although a front center console is an optional extra.

The rear seats are less impressive as they’re not terribly spacious. While there’s a good amount of headroom, legroom is limited as occupants will find a mere 34.7 inches (881 mm) of space and that’s 1.1 inches (28 mm) less than last year’s crew cab pickup. The experience reminded me of the compact Maverick and Santa Cruz, which actually have more rear seat legroom on paper. That being said, the seats seem to be competitive for the segment, although not as generous as those found in the Gladiator.

A Turbo Four With V8 Levels Of Torque

The streamlining continues under the hood as the Colorado’s engine lineup shrinks from three to one. As a result, every single model is equipped with a turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder.

The engine has been powering the Silverado for years and it’s available in three different outputs. The entry-level variant produces 237 hp (177 kW / 240 PS) and 259 lb-ft (351 Nm) of torque, which is a sizable improvement over the old 2.5-liter four-cylinder that developed 200 hp (149 kW / 203 PS) and 191 lb-ft (258 Nm).

The entry-level engine comes standard in the WT and LT, and offers respectable performance. There’s plenty of power for cruising around town, although we wished for a little extra oomph when it came to merging onto the highway.

The mid-level engine comes standard in the Trail Boss and Z71, where it produces 310 hp (231 kW / 314 PS) and 390 lb-ft (528 Nm) of torque. Customers can also opt for a high-output version that develops 310 hp (231 kW / 314 PS) and 430 lb-ft (582 Nm) of torque. The latter figure is insane as the engine has more torque than the 5.0-liter V8 in the Ford F-150. It also bests the Silverado’s 5.3-liter V8 by 47 lb-ft (64 Nm), despite having half the number of cylinders.

The high-output engine comes standard in the range-topping Colorado ZR2, but Trail Boss and Z71 customers can order a high-output calibration for an additional $395. That seems pretty reasonable as it delivers an extra 40 lb-ft (54 Nm) of torque, which will be appreciated if you tow on a regular basis.

While the base engine is fine, the upgraded versions transform the truck from good to great. As you’d expect, responsiveness improves significantly and there’s plenty of power throughout the band. Chevrolet hasn’t released detailed performance specifications, but officials we spoke to said all three versions of the engine enable the truck to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in less than seven seconds.

Speaking of the engine, it seems relatively refined and engineers told us it was “designed like a diesel.” As a result, it sports a rigid cylinder block casting, a fully forged bottom end, and a stiff crankshaft – among other things. While that’s just scratching the surface, the engine has been subjected to countless torture tests and was designed to withstand years of heavy use.

The engine is connected to a capable eight-speed automatic transmission, which worked well on- and off-road as shifts were perfectly timed and well executed. Rear-wheel drive comes standard on the WT and LT, but the rest of the lineup has four-wheel drive.

EPA ratings haven’t been released, but the Colorado has an engine start/stop system and active fuel management technology. As a result, we can expect the truck to surpass the Silverado’s rating of 19 mpg city, 22 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined. It’s also worth mentioning that all of the engines run on regular gasoline, even the high-output variant.

A Capable Truck That Doesn’t Ride Rough

One of the most surprising things about the 2023 Colorado is how well it drives. Body-on-frame trucks aren’t typically known for their refinement, but Chevy’s entry exceeded our expectations.

While the ride can get a little bumpy on rough roads, it’s not uncomfortable and can best be described as truck-like. However, those incidents were few and far between as things settle down significantly on smooth roads and the Colorado proved to be a comfortable highway cruiser, despite having a solid rear axle and leaf springs.

The good news doesn’t end there as handling is good for a body-on-frame pickup. Cornering was secure and predictable without any hints of drama until the truck was pushed hard. The experience can also be somewhat entertaining on the right road, although you’ll want to keep your expectations in check.

Given this is a truck, it’s not surprising to learn the steering is a little heavy and slow. We didn’t have any problems with the heft, but we wish the truck offered a sport mode with a more direct response as traversing twisty mountain roads required an almost comical amount of turning.

Speaking of driving modes, the Colorado offers Normal, Tow/Haul, Off-Road, Terrain, and Baja settings. Terrain mode might be the most notable as it was designed for low-speed rock crawling and it enables you to travel at a leisurely pace with subtle throttle responses.

The truck also offers a cool off-road performance display as well as up to 10 different camera views including underneath the truck. Speaking of off-road goodies, the Z71 and Trail Boss come standard with a limited-slip differential and hill descent control. The Trail Boss is also notable for featuring the aforementioned lift and wider stance.

Back on pavement, wind noise can be pronounced at highway speed, but otherwise the truck is fairly quiet. The model also sports an impressive amount of standard safety equipment including Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and IntelliBeam automatic high-beams.

Customers looking for more safety tech will find an assortment of affordable packages that offer Adaptive Cruise Control, Rear Park Assist, and Rear-Cross Traffic Braking. They’re joined by Blind Zone Steering Assist, Rear Pedestrian Alert, and an HD Surround Vision system.

Colorado owners like to tow and most versions of the truck have a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 lbs (3,493 kg). This bests the Frontier, Ranger, and Tacoma while also matching the mightiest Gladiator.

Sticking with towing, customers can get a package that adds a receiver as well as an automatic locking rear differential, an integrated trailer brake controller, and a trailering app on the infotainment system. We’d also be remiss to mention the truck has a maximum payload capacity of up to 1,684 lbs (764 kg).

Mid-Size No Longer Means Half As Good

Mid-size trucks have often felt like half-hearted efforts, but that’s clearly not the case with the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado. Designers and engineers poured blood, sweat, and tears into the model and the end result is truly impressive as it looks great, drives well, and features an impressive new engine.

On top of that, the Colorado boasts a significantly improved interior, more upscale equipment, and a new Trail Boss trim that should appeal to off-roaders on a budget. Speaking of which, Chevy managed to keep pricing affordable and this means you can get a nice truck for around $42,000.

While there are a few tradeoffs, the Colorado is a solid pickup and the one to beat. Of course, there’s no shortage of challengers on the horizon and we’ll learn more about them in the coming months.

2023.06.04 22:09 dillpicklezzz Used Truck for family and towing

Hi all,

I'm looking for some help determining which truck I should buy. We are having a second child and will be buying a average size travel trailer in the next 2 years. My budget is $35k and I am able to purchase anywhere in the US for the right truck. The must haves are 4x4, crew cab, and I'd really prefer certain colors (black, white, gray, silver.

I've mainly been looking at 2015 - 2018 Tundras because of their legendary reliability and I love their look, but my friend is recommending I go with the Ford F150 3.5 eb or 5.0 V8. My other friend bought a 2021 Chevy Silverado last month and recommends that. Anyone have experience with these trucks and can make a recommendation?

2023.06.04 19:30 StenchHole666 Suggestions under $20k for a vehicle in Germany

We're moving to Germany in a few days for my husband DoD job, we will need to buy a second vehicle and would like some advice regarding fuel costs vs ev etc
Will stretch budget for EV if we'd save a significant amount on fuel to make it make sense financially.
The DoD is paying for shipping for one of our vehicles, we chose to bring our 2013 BMW X5 Xdrive35i and sell our 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500 dually.
We'll be in Germany for 5 years and selling the car before we come back to the US, so preferably something a tad older that has already gone through most of its depreciation buy not so old that it'll be an unreliable POS.
For the second vehicle we'd like either a hatchback, wagon or small crossover, 2 door or 4 door is fine. No sedans or coupes though.
Bonus points if it's something unique and not available in the US.
With fuel prices being so high it makes me wonder if going with an EV, a diesel or a hybrid would make the most sense. But I have some questions/concerns:
Ev: what's the charging infrastructure like in Germany and most of Europe, especially the surrounding countries, we'll be traveling Europe alot while there for both vacation and his job
Diesel: I've heard many cities in Germany and or Europe have banned diesels, or maybe just older diesels or you have to pay a toll fee to take them in or something like that? Would love more information about this. Also are diesels significantly more expensive to maintain/repair in Europe like they tend to be in the US?
Any specific models that are fuel efficient, reasonably reliable, comfortable and somewhat luxurious?
Was eyeballing maybe a BMW 3 or 5 series wagon with the M57 twinturbo 3.0L I6 diesel or 3.0L I6 national aspirated gas motor, or maybe a late 2000s Audi A4, A6 wagon, A7, or Q5 with the 3.0L V6 tdi motor or the supercharged 3.0L V6 tsfi motor (id only go gas if the maintenance/repair costs are significantly lower or if reliability is significantly better)
Also thought about something like a Lexus CT200H hybrid.
Also open to EV suggestions if it has a 200+ mile range so we could realistically use it for road trips, I haven't had a chance to look into their prices to buy though so idk if I could find anything decently comfortable for $20k or less.

2023.06.04 00:40 zehcnas67 2016 Silverado

I have a 2016 Silverado crew cab. I bought it new from the stealership. 5.3 6l80e. Maintenance done regularly and I got a lifter stuck that Chevy covered. Fast forward to under 120k im having transmission problems even tho I never towed or drove like a dumbass. I’ve been having trans problems had to get towed due to a cel. Trans fluid is silver and has flake. I live in souther California where parking is horrible. Is a rebuild required or can I get by with a fluid swap

2023.06.03 23:40 mrsquidyshoes Unable to figure out the source of a cylinder 8 misfire on a 2001 Express 3500

So, I will be honest and admit I am not a mechanic, but I have an issue that has stumped me, and the mechanic at the dealership. I have a cylinder 8 misfire (p0308 code on the scanner), but it only really misfires around 30 miles an hour, or occasionally at 55ish mph. They checked the part plugs (brand new and no oil on them), and the plug wiring (already replaced), compression tested the gasket, and the fuel pressure, and could not find a reason for the misfire. This cylinder did have a different spark plug than the others when we bought it (long story there about the condition), but I am not sure if that would have had a major effect. Is there something simple that I'm looking over, or is it a more involved problem that might require tearing into the engine?
More vehicle details:
2001 Chevy Express 3500, 1 Ton School Bus Conversion
5.7 l v8
30-gallon fuel tank from a Silverado
Virtually every oil hose has been replaced, as well as the fuel line, injectors, spark plugs, hydro-boost pump, as well as the fuel pump (though the fuel pump has an odd quirk where it stalls at exactly half a tank, so we can never fully use the range).
The AC system and oil pressure also bog down when the light comes on, but I assume it's related to the drop in power when misfiring.
I appreciate your insight!

2023.06.03 04:12 Bruno_Bataglia Towing issue?

2017 Chevy silverado 1500 6 speed, 33,000 miles. When I am towing the truck seems to make more noise than normal. I later realized that I was in auto 4x4 which I believe has caused me shifting issues in the past. Has anyone noticed that auto 4x4 causes harder shifting? Tranny fluid and diff fluid are still a good color. No burning smell or metal shavings.
Also in tow/haul mode when slowing down, anyone notice that their truck downshifts extremely hard? I feel like I'm chasing my tail and can't pinpoint the problem.
Just need to drive it like I stole it?

2023.06.03 01:10 applesauceisevil Looking for a small crossover or SUV with towing capacity of at least 2000lbs

I'm ready to upgrade from my 2013 Ford Focus and am looking for a vehicle that I can drive to work every day through a city, go on long distance trips, and tow a trailer carrying about one ton of mulch or soil. I'm looking to keep the budget below $40k, but am considering a relatively decked out Subaru Outback (Onyx edition XT or Limited XT) for ~$42k.
From my research the 2023 Jeep Cherokee, Subaru Forester (Wilderness), Kia Sportage, Chevy Blazer, Toyota RAV4, and Volvo XC40 (Or maybe it was the C40) are the only options in my budget range (based of of MSRP, not even sure what the out the door price is) and towing capacity need.
I am looking for a slight bit of luxury (non-cloth seats, butt warmer, rear camera) since I intend to own this car until the wheels fall off. Reliability is top priority though as my current car is notoriously problematic. This will be my first time buying a car on my own and I'm not really knowledgeable about cars, so all help is greatly appreciated.

2023.06.02 15:21 Icy_Plenty_7117 Gearheads/car Dads unite!

After some comments on another post I figured I’d throw this up. All the fellow gearheads chime in. Tell me about your projects, or dream projects, your bitchin shop, if your kid is in to cars too etc.
I’m currently project-less, bills killed that for now. But in the past I’ve had a few diesel trucks that were farm/work trucks but I had some money put in them, I had a 1977 CJ5 with the 304 and 35” boggers, I had a static dropped squarebody c/10 with a 350/th400 that was eventually going to get turbo LS swapped before we found out my wife was pregnant after almost 10 years of trying and giving up (actually we found out she was pregnant after she was car sick after riding up to Pigeon Forge for the spring Road Run), my wife had a few custom trucks, a tuned and lowered Subaru Forester XT and currently has a lowered and tuned Fiat 500 Turbo.
My list of dream vehicles is long and all customized and I’m at work and don’t have type to type it all here, my old c/10 was really at the top of the list. My wife’s would be a CTS-V wagon or a Chevy SS (like a 2015 or so, the year isn’t important but 6 speed manual).
My daughter is only 18 months so who knows, but since both my wife and I are big time gearheads we are hoping she will be too.
I’ve never completely rebuilt an engine but close, my dad was a diesel mechanic for Marta in Atlanta and worked on cars on the side at home so I got it honest. I’ve never had a vehicle of mine in a shop, I do it all. Customs, repairs, etc. Side of the road, in my driveway. My biggest feather in my cap was me and a buddy changed the clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, throw out bearing and pilot bearing in my 2005 Dodge 3500 in a truck stop parking lot with a borrowed floor jack. The nv5600 transmission in that truck is over 500 pounds with fluid so it was a PAIN in a parking lot.
Share it Dads. Tell me your car stuff.

2023.06.02 00:08 PXAO What’s your advice for getting into the field?

Hello, I have been looking into getting my CDL A and hopefully getting into a decent company with the long term goal of eventually going towards owneoperator. I currently work from home as a graphic designer, and I have been wanting to become a trucker for some time now, but I’m trying to switch from the office line of work to trucking while still supporting my family. I have grown up driving manual in most of my vehicles, and am familiar with towing when it comes to my 1500 Silverado and our 30ft camping trailer, I even went through a white knuckle period where I towed the 30ft trailer with a Chevy Colorado before upgrading to the 1500. I even have experience with medium duty farm equipment so the driving/operation/ maneuvering involved with Truck driving doesn’t scare me too much and shouldn’t be too big of an obstacle. However, I do realize I will still have a lot to learn(trying to not sound like I’m a know-it-all). Plus I really love driving and seeing the “Country side.” So with that little bit of information to mind, what advice, direction, course of action would anyone recommend so that I can succeed and, God willing, make a successful career out of trucking. What should I avoid? what things should I do first? what things should I focus on? what things should maybe not focus on? what things can I start doing now? Any and all advice is better than none. Thank you.

2023.05.31 20:21 Maximum-Cover- How tall is a safe load?

I am moving from western Colorado to Ohio (~1500 miles) and have several 5.5' tall cabinets/toolboxes I need to move.
Assuming the weight isn't exceeding my truck's capacity (they'll be mostly empty) and the load is securely strapped down, is it safe to do this with the cabinets upright in the bed of the truck?
5.5' over the bed seems really tall.
Of course gas mileage would suck but I'm mainly concerned about safety/handling given wind hitting such a large surface sticking over the cab. But then again that's pretty much what small box trucks are... Right?
1500 Chevy Silverado with an extended bed, in case it matters.
