Usually the unibodies will employ a sub-frame for that purpose. Sufficiently strong— and correctly implemented— a truck like this could employ what’s called “cutaway cab”, which is how light duty motor homes get built, along with panel trucks and those box trucks you see at the rental places.

Yup! I ran those on my ‘98 Cavalier, and my brother runs them on his ‘01 Century. Legitimately unstoppable, and dirt cheap. Read more

Important to note that good winter tires don’t have to be expensive. I’m on my second set of General Altimax Arctic tires which have been perfect in the mountains and a set of 4 only cost me ~$325.

Good winter tires (it appears that some all-seasons have really started to offer more-than-decent winter performance these days, and I don’t mean the “all-weather” tires, which also can be included. Other all-seasons with pitiful snow performance do not apply here), moderate, but not excessive (whether it be too fast o Read more

The Tesla pickup has impressive stats - but nobody is buying that triangle on wheels outside of Musks diehard EV cult unless they just want to get noticed. GM and Ford/Rivian will lead the pickup EV revolution.

Based on 95% of the reactions to the unveiling article, I’m not sure we need to worry too much about that scenario. Read more

I’m not worried as I’m still waiting on my solar roof shingles from Tesla. Judging by that, we won’t see this truck in the wild for another 4 or 5 years.

I thought for sure it was a troll... and they were going to bring out the “real one”.... I’m literally shocked at how bad this is.

That seems a bit silly, what if they just swap the plates anyway?

Around here (Chicago area) it also can depend on what you drive and how old you look. Grey haired retiree in a Corvette or Miata? Not a problem usually. Young guy in a loud tuned Subaru or a beater of some kind? You’ll probably get pulled over to be given a warning and maybe a breathalyzer test if it’s Saturday night Read more

CT has a two plate requirement, but I haven’t been pestered for not having one up front. Maybe because I don’t drive like a tool?

Seriously, I have no idea what the point of a front license plate is in a state that doesn’t have speed cameras.

Neutral: The CAFE exemption for “light trucks”. Anything that can help put an end to bro-dozers and 18 kajillion varieties of the same giant SUV would be great.

I don’t understand the obsession with fake grilles. They’re not selling a 6-wheeled sports car, it’s not some abnormal thing the public needs to ease into. Some of the most iconic and beloved cars have no grille. Some of these cars have modern versions that keep the look despite having watercooled engines.
