My pickup smokes like a tire fire, I never notice anything but on the bumper of the pickup. It's just soot, water should take care of that easily enough.

I seem to collect the same amount of road grime pulling the CRV and diesel.

<**** first into a door jamb as a child, I'm probably sterile anyways. A few days of swollen bits, and a few more of pissing blood mixed in with a grotesquely large left nut and I'm calling it unlikely. Then there's the statistic anomaly that I'm not currently paying any child support, or amidst any custody battles despite my, .....um..... history. Seventeen years of not being the most careful boy on the block, and not one pregger scare.



Bacho- I've thought a flat bed would an awesome way to go. Much more useful than a box, especially if it were a 10' model. Plus, it'd be super easy to build a rack to put a boat on the truck that way when the trailer is full.
I'd look at these guys for a flatbed. I've got one of there trailers and it is the shiznit. www.fthr.com
I really like my trailer too. Its just a four place snowmobile trailer. 20' flatbed, with a pair of 2.5k# axles. Tows frickin awesome, even with three boats on it. The mondo box I built last fall can easily hold three boats worth of crap, and still have room to not have to put anything you don't want in the cab. I wish I could've coughed up the cash to do it out of diamond plate, but rough guessing I figured it was going to be a $5k box.

I only see any signs of diesel in the non skid on top of the decks of the tiger after 7 years. The new owner didn't notice so it wasn't that bad. But I did trailer with a cover on the boat.

Found the ultimate beach cat truck.

Just had a new trailer built and with 2 of the Velocity boxes on it should have plenty of storage.

I've been thinking about getting one of those for a couple of years. It sucks after a day or two at a regatta to get to the stuff at the front of the bed. I can't find dimensions on that site - can you still fit 4' wide sheet goods in the bed?

My regatta ride. Great to get down on the beach 4wd with lockers and heaps of room in the bag for sailing gear and tools. Will be adding draws and a slide out fridge down the track. A lift kit and winch is on order first.

When winter hits, unhook the boat trailer and hit the Aussie outback. Got both seasons covered smile

That's a cool Volkswagen! We don't get any sweet vehicles in the USA, hell you can't even get a normal transmission anymore. We've become so fat and facking lazy pretty soon the transmissions will be voice activated.

We can start with NHTSA, the the EPA, and some other government alphabet soup organizations

That truck is probably safer and cleaner than anything we currently have on the road even if it may be a diesel..

I'm just guessing but I bet more of it has to do with GM and Ford's lobbying efforts.

Diesel's aren't welcome here. Whether that's from lobbying from the big three or not, who know's. I can't imagine its from them, as it has cost them a flippin' fortune trying to stay legal, and keep up with the warranty issues caused by all the smog B.S.

The difference in the small trucks available inside/outside the US has baffled me for a long time. The first time I visited Chile, I remember seeing an awesome four door Mitsubishi 4x4 with a diesel and 5 speed manual (before there was ever a four door truck in the US). I saw the four door Nissan in Saudi years before it came to the US and I bought one as soon as they brought them here (but was pretty unimpressed with the dreadful fuel mileage...remember that V8 Juice commercial? Slap your head...Yeah, that bad). Just look at these models of trucks with good power and put our truck's mileage to shame - two of which are US manufacturers...Why don't they think we would buy these?

Maybe more so from the refineries.. what would happen if 50% of all cars converted with no infrastructure to meet the demand?

Had a BMW 335 Twin Turbo Diesel in Germany last summer... It was a blast. 6 Speed manual transmission and the Autobahn let me get my Steve McQueen on!!!!

Funny, standing behind the car and getting stuff out of the trunk with the engine running, you couldn't even smell the the exhaust..

Probably more so with tariffs and the Chicken Tax..

Could be, but the new Ford Escape is the Ford Kuga that has been hot seller in Europe for the past few years... And I think that is being built in South America.

From what I understand, there are a lot of models that don't make it to the continent. This has more to do marketing focus groups.. Let alone the safety standards and the MPG requirements..

I don't know if that would make that much of a dent. There's a lot of diesel burnt each day in shipping and agriculture, and basically aviation. JP8 isn't exactly diesel, but its in the family. Rail locomotives burn a different kind of fuel as well, but its just a higher sulphur content.

Because Americans want big v-8s and big power. Many do not really have any experience with diesels either. Many do not want to have to deal with not being able to find diesel at the pump in some areas. Diesels are also expensive, when I worked at BMW I learned that the Diesel engine was a $15k upgrade!

On the other hand the EPA seems to have concluded that diesels are the dirtiest motors on the planet. Most of the diesels internationally would not pass emissions here. I can see why many vehicles would not be offered here because expected sales would be low, and it would be expensive.

I take my boats everywhere with my '04 Nissan Xterra. She has pulled a beachcat back and forth from Florida 3 times now and counting...

It gets terrible gas mileage but the top rack is perfect for coolers and wet gear.

Yes, I dabbled with Nissans for a while.
