Luke Bryan's Hunting Fishing Everday Truck

Post by Rodeoflyer » Thu Nov 02, 2017 8:52 pm

No words required, other than his shootin' at cans, downwind, while he's deer hunting with 100 grain bullets song that make zero sense. Who writes this guys music? Supposedly he grew up on a farm. Is that all BS?

If only GM built a SUV with a bed on a suburban chassis. I wonder what they would call it? I bet they'd have an avalanche of orders.

Looks more like a Suburban (or whatever they call them nowadays) with the rear windows removed. Anything on 35's would sell. It just makes the vehicle so much more useful. All that extra ground clearance is a good thing, no matter what some may think.

Before I retired, someone at work bought one of these ( https://www.google.com/search?q=image+o ... YYY9hS68EM: ) red ones. He parked next to me. After work, he got SO pissed at me because I pointed out that my kids Toyota corolla (that I drove that day was right next to it) had more ground clearance in front than his new silverado. Then I asked him if it was even a 4x4, cause it sat so low. He promptly flipped me the bird. LOL :lol:
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

I feel like that’s the problem with GM theses days. I used to be hard core GM but they always come up with these awesome concepts but never put them in production. Or they just slap a few sticker on it and paint the wheels and charge $7k for the “appearance package”. If enterprise rent a car won’t rent it GM won’t make it.
