Here you see Black Violence and The War Horse together, calmly in their stables.

I’m not as good with clever names but I do love the truck I have now. It has semi aggressive tires because it does regularly see mud (not an asphalt angel) and a grill guard because I hit 3 deer in the first 3 months I owned it.

It’s a well done Jeep for being in a part of the country we’re in. He got it so he could stop having to drive his asphalt angel on rainy days.

92 XJ. I'm not much of a fan of the color but it was like that when I bought it. Lifted, locked rear diff. Gets me where I need to go.

Not as sexy as the previous vehicles but it gets me to work at over 60 miles per gallon and it will do 80 miles per hour.

This picture was taken just to show the difference light angle/intensity makes in the color on my Coupe. The paint is called Interlagos Yellow. At the time I got it the dealership took some time to find/obtain one with the color/options/package. They tried to talk me into a different color. My response was, "I'll bet I can get a yellow Camaro." The backtracked and told me they could find one, just give them a few more days.

They called a couple days later and told me they'd located one but I would need to come down to the dealership and pay a deposit on it to show I was serious about it so they could then get the dealer that had the car to "trade" it to them and get it delivered to them so I could pick it up. The wouldn't tell me where it was.

When they called to tell me it was in and ready to pickup I went down to get it. The sales manager walked in and told me why they had trouble finding one. He told me it was one of only two cars with the color and options package sitting on dealers lots east of the Mississippi. In the years since I've seen two others in that color but can't speak about the options/package.

Genesis Coupe, 3.8 Trak with the 3.8 V6 and 6 speed manual transmission. I still find it fun to drive, 8 years later. Lots of fun.

Same reason I got my 350 (18 Platinum). Been full timing it in the camper for 14 months now, through two PA winters. It gets easier every time; only had my water freeze up for a little while on 2 occasions this year. Lol

Callmebubba my bride and I have been thinking about possibly selling our home and hitting the road. We are 70 and in good health. Why did you take to the highway?

Transient construction worker. It made sense at the time because the job I have was never supposed to stay stationary for this long (26 months in one location now, 14 of it in the camper). In retrospect I could have saved money to rent a house but my situation is completely different than yours. It’s just me (I’m not quite 30) and a corgi so space isn’t an issue. It would NOT have worked for me and my ex-wife but I had a neighbor last year who had a wife and 3 kids in one slightly smaller than mine who were happy as could be.
I am not a minimalist and did not take a minimalist approach when I bought it. It’s 37’ long + the nose, leather recliners, residential refrigerator, king size bed, 50” TV, etc. A friend did the opposite, bought a used, 30’ bumper pull that he could pay cash for and only lasted 4 months. Now he swears living in a camper is terrible.
It’s not for everyone but in my little niche of the world it’s the general standard of living and most prefer it to moving in and out of rent houses/ apartments (myself included).

Very interesting and this really makes sense for your situation. I like your approach as a non minimalist. Thanks for the explanation. Live well.

Maybe too grayman, lol? That pelican case is cabled in securely behind the seats. The AK is my current truck gun (took a class with Randy Harris with it), but I almost always have an AR pistol/Stakeout/PDW in the front with me.

I have a gas (6.2L) F250 that I purchased new about a year ago. Its all stock with no lift kit or oversized tires or anything. I get 12.5-12.9 around town and 14.5-15.5 on the interstate.

My wife & I are going to be in the market for a larger truck soon, thank you for your input.

Diesel, on 35x12.50 tires I was around 14.5 average (highway and city). Did some minor exhaust modifications to free it up and jumped to nearly 18. Bumped tire size to 37’s and now I’m at 15.5. But it looks really cool and still puts enough power to the ground to pull anything other than a commercial trailer.
