My Truck...

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I was originally thinking one of the newer ones because they are a fair bit better made than the taco (supposedly)
I have an 07 Taco that I would not buy again. Built for taking the family skiing on the weekend not for regular bush use. I've put OME suspension, ARB bumper, custom rear bumper and a Warn winch on it to make it into a serviceable truck. Still, 2 drums of gas is a damn heavy load for it, 3 is scary.

The '97 Hilux has stock suspension but the front could use an upgrade. I added a leaf to the rear after a coworker broke a spring on his. We'd regularly haul 3 drums diesel, two 100lb propane and a grocery order to camp with them and they'd just chug along fine. That 2.8l diesel is a beast, but won't do anything quickly. It really is nice to drive if you aren't in a hurry, but the newer Taco is much smoother and car like to drive.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

In 2011 i had a new hilux 4x4 for a service truck in australia and it was the best vehicle i ever had. It was a turbo diesel crew with a service tray that replaced the factory box.

I also used a Holden ute with the isuzu diesel and it was surprisingly just as well made. My coworkers all preferred the Nissan Navarra petrol but i tried it in the mine mud and it was quite a step down from the ones i drove. Those guys liked the car-like ride

Like you say neither with the diesels were fast but so damn torquey it didnt matter. When i was testing the taco and ranger they just dont feel like the same quality

Too much to mulch - If it gets just a little too long, it builds up on top, so I have to bag it sometimes. Some of it goes to compost.

Cornuk is a mule for the Nebraska mob, to help keep his creditors at bay, he needs the extra income. What you see there is the vehicle to transport and truck bed of grass to conceal the drugs. The gymnasium is the holding station/distribution centre. The artist colony is a ruse. Brilliant

Oh - I know... there's a small town about 30 miles from here with a bad problem. The crime section takes up most of the paper (sometimes more than High School sports!). Every town out here has a meth problem to some degree. I just don't think much of it originates here.

Exactly, nobody relocates from a major drug import port epicentre like Vancouver buys an old school out in the middle of nowhere Nebraska without criminal intentions. The school is most likely a redistribution Center in a drug pipeline between Mexico and Canada. It’s either that or he’s in Witness Protection. I’m suspicious either way. It’s a Brilliant set up imo
