Bit of a blog post but finally empty a catch can and see I have a coolant leak and a big old hole in the rad. Bright side is the bumper has to come off to replace the rad so time to order a fmic. Not sure what kind of logic that is to save time but spend more..  zoom zoom lol?

You should probably call icbc or stop by an insurance outlet since youre now not showing registration. Also the vpd should be notified so they dont pull you over and then we have to hear about the police state we live in and the oppresion.. ohh the oppresion... lol. (or just get new plates)

Unless they gave you two registration stickers - the yearly colored barcode sticker?

Ordered a tyre plug repair kit from amazon a few weeks back. Got to use it today. Will see how the plug holds. 

Did the plug repair and changed the oil in my Acura. 

FYI repair kit is Boulder Tools.

A plug isn't as good as patching the tire from the inside.

Full size truck opinions anyone? Rented a truck for 3rd weekend in a row, thinking might have to face reality. 

Hauling capacity is important, but would also need to like drive the thing daily.

Why you renting? 

Are you towing, hauling or carrying many peoples? How many seats do you need? What is your current vehicle and how isn’t it suiting your needs? Which trucks have you rented? Cab configuration and bed size? 

Without answering the above and similar questions you’re vaguebooking imo. 

Pickup truck owners are highly brand loyal; so pick a brand and be a dick about it.

yeah, endur-bro raises some good questions. you mention hauling capacity, but hauling of what? (tee'd up)

if you have the space, give some consideration to non p/u vehicle with some towing capacity and get a trailer for your hauling duties. it will make the daily driving a lot easier and likely less expensive on fuel too.

Hauling crap in the bed of the truck for my yard at present. Rented an F250. Last few loads have been topsoil, cinder, mulch, bags of various yard crap and lumber.

Lots of interior/exterior renevation material hauling at my house for the next few years likely. Bad tendency to do overly ambitious projects myself and am fairly inept so it'll take forever.

Don't need to haul full sheets of ply (8' bed) if that's what you're getting at. But big enough bed and stout enough suspension to haul a full yard of soil at a shot would be nice.

Enough room in cab for 2 young kids.

Have no brand loyalty, but my Pops always had Ford.

At present I have an econo-box which I quite like, suspension can't even handle a small hitch mounted rack though.
