So it eventually took me a while longer to sell my vehicle back home than planned and I had to eat a bit of a loss on the sale unfortunately. So I dropped my price range and had been looking around the kootaneys for a decent vehicle.

Of which I realised there was a somewhat shortage in the pick up range.

Ended up finding a pretty good condition 4runner not 5mins down the road from my new house. 98 model, very clean interior, power everything and the 3.4L V6, the kilometres were a little high but I've investigated and it seems they have a good reputation for handling well over the 300K range. Came with quite new winter tyres on toyo rims as well as the summer set so I'm happy!

Well now that that is settled, any thoughts amongst truck aficionados on the new 2015 Chevy Colorado?

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.
