I would still hate the big ugly kidney grill, but this is way better than the badge engineering MB thought of doing with the Mitsubishi truck.

It's a piece of CRAP. Pickup drivers are outright laughing at a dirt bike hanging 1/3rd out of the bed like that. Ridiculous.

Typical toyoter grotesqueness. And as the first redesign in like 17 years, expect a fresh, heavy round of engineering deficiencies and regular recalls.

Interestingly enough, just visited the west coast. Tons of older Chevy's Fords, etc. from the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's on the road. Wasn't till my last day IN Tacoma that I saw an older gen Tacoma.

Very cool that the Bronco is finally showing up for customers.

Ford Broncos Are Showing Up at Buyers’ Doors (msn.com)

Seems this is Jeeps answer to the Ford Bronco.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Xtreme Recon is an extra-hardcore off-roader (msn.com)

Just Updated the weather with heat advisory through Tuesday, Wednesday we cool off into the low 90's, still way to hot for this time of year.

Seattle is now supposed to hit 115 tomorrow, Monday. At my house and for Mountlake Terrace, we were 104. Records everywhere. Heat stroke, etc.

@A Horse With No Name Hope your son is doing ok, the heat in his area was crazy also this weekend.

WIshing you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY @Robert Hall

NIIIIIIICE! I LOVE me some garlic and would love this. 

When we get further along with out home, I'd love a little garden with the common things we use plenty of like bell peppers, jalapenos, garlic and onions.

We got nasty heat about two weeks ago where we had highs of like 105 for a couple days and the days leading up to that and following in the high 90's. It was brutal and I got a handful of patches of my tall fescue grass that went dormant(looks dead) that I'm quite bummed about but I wasn't about to try and water enough to keep those spots green.

Feeling in a snarky mood this morning...

Yes, I always have to question that same thought line since we also have Craisian (Caucasion / Asian) and Blasian ( Black / Asian) plus we cannot forget which one was Arab, Mediterranean, or how about Persian? So yes, how do we defend that all humanity came from Adam and Eve, supposedly two white people and yet have so many different AMAZING MULTI-CULTURAL Heritage areas in the world?

Same Logic can be applied to our Automobiles, amazing how Woman and Men from various heritage backgrounds see things?

Ford Flex, @surreal1272 which owns one, I rented a new one in Kuai a number of years ago when they first came out knows how awesome the Flex is and what many do not realize, the Flex was a solid FEMALE ENGINEERING TEAM! The cool stuff that is on all the Fords now, started with the Flex such as the gas filler lid that has the built in vacume seal. Woman do not like touching dirty gas caps and asked why do we need it if we create a suction on the lid that has a proper built in seal?

Awesome Engineering

Then we have reports like this that Jeep needs to be worried as the Full Size Bronco kills the Wrangler.

The Ford Bronco is finally here and Jeep should be worried - CNN

More than just label mad. Hiking, woodworking and Music are my refuge. Will be borrowing the skills you are using on the B-59 to build a post apocalypse vehicle for personal use....should resemble something out of the mad max movie. 

This looks like too much fun...

Looks like it might be cactus grey, hard to tell with it being a bit overcast.
