It's time for a new truck anyways so I threw a deposit down on of these units. Won't be here until June/July though..

The vehicle market is just stupid right now. I put the deposit down 3 days after this truck was announced and there was already 2 people in line ahead of me. AND the dealer will only be receiving 7 of them for our entire city/area.

Put more miles on a trailer back and forth to the dealer than it did miles in the fields. So bad that we were still getting warranty on items that were documented as issues after the warranty ran out. Never did get everything 100% but the issues that were annoying rather than critical we finally gave up on. Maybe I should have posted this in the "Rant" thread. Blood pressure just went up thinking about it.
Have to say though, sittin' in the seat of the tractor, drivin' around the fields kind of relieved some of the stress from other things in life.

Lol. No doubt. My grapple stopped grappling today. Tracked it down to dealer install wiring to switch. Where they ran it became a pinch point when running the bucket down and it pinched the 12v wire internally. Had to probe the wire before and after the pinched area that didnít even break the sheathing.

Previous tractor was a late Ď70s model Yanmar. Which it was once licensed chinese John Deere. Bought it when the grey market was wide open before all the tariffs and taxes were bad. 100% mechanical aside from the starter. It was almost indestructible until a rare southern hard freeze killed it. Visible crack on the outside of the block and blows really hard from the crankcase vent, too.

Iím too leery of new vehicles to even consider buying one fresh off the lot. My brother just picked up a VW Atlas and it is crazy the amount of tech in them. I like my steering column and throttle body with a cable to the peddle.

I won't lie, a part of me wants something with a manual transmission, a carburetor and no computers..

But a bigger part of me wants something shiny that has warranty..

When I bought my Chrysler 200 back in 2012, I specifically looked for a basic trim model, only parts of the car that were on the higher tech end are the engine (the 3.6l) and the head unit (itís still the most basic version of the Hard Drive equipped one though), it has power windows, locks, steering, and brakes as well as a very simple LED running light set up in the headlights. It doesnít have leather, sunroof, power seats, just a step above rental spec but with 280+hp

When I bought my 2014 Patriot a few months ago, I was surprised to see how stripped it was for a 2014. Basic radio, manual gauges, non-central manual locks. crank windows, ect...

Just picked up this beauty. 2005 Triumph Speed Triple. 26k miles, tuner and exhaust. My best friend owned it since 14 miles and I know it's been very well taken care of. I have wanted this bike for over a decade and the chance popped up and I couldn't say no.

My 1st gen Tacoma has roll down windows, 5 speed, no ABS, and cloth. Only thing special is Toyotaís ADD hubs and not manual ones but thatís not saying much.

One thing about buy new domestic is that you can usually order whatever youíd like. I may end up doing that...one day.

Some of the restomod shops are offering limited warranties now.

That's to some help from several people, including some very helpful insight & advice from Ikaika (The Crawl Space) & Topher, I have the first new parts for my next C3 build - the G10 version of the GC 4.2, plus front/rear driveshafts from Boom Racing.Thank you Topher. Thank you Ikaika.

The majority of the parts going into this build are actually going to be 'reclaimed' parts from my previous semi-CAPRA- based C3 rig, CAPbRAstard, and the body has already been selected/ordered...so I'll just need to order a few more parts. As for the remainder of the 'reclaimed' CAPbRAstard parts, they will be going into my new rock racer, which will be based on a cross between the V1S Comp chassis from STH, the Alcista chassis from Krazed Builds, and the Axial Bomber (to be named "CAPbRAstard Too").

Finally, as for what the body will be, the only clue I'm going to give at this time is "Italian exotic". That should get some people's 'wheels' turning.
