  • I'm not defending the Clown or his ruler-made truck here...

    But...

    Truck Beds have been dramatically shrinking across the board for about 20 years now. It's pretty rare to see a true "long bed" truck nowadays unless you custom order. Currently on your midsize trucks like a Ranger/Colorado/Tacoma, you'll see beds sometimes under 5' (60") with the norm being 6' (72") or less.
    It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

    Go Cats!!! GO BLACKHAWKS!

    Cuck the Fubs... Let's Go WHITE SOX!!!

      It also isn't difficult to find a truck that will cost you at least $60,000. Those things are crazy expensive, unless you get one that's stripped down.
      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

        This is why I was shocked it was $60k

          Because they're for groceries now. Like 1% use them to haul.

            This is the main contributing factor.

            I'm actually kind of curious as to what percentage of trucks sold in the last 10 years are legitimately used as a "truck" per-se. Off the cusp guess says 35-40%.

                Yeah except those trucks weren't promised at lower price and are way more reliable.

                            Lmao. My dudes, Europe, china, and Japan have all begun the transition away from oil in earnest. Manipulating the market isn't going to do anything to impact that trajectory.

                            And if you think that the BPs, Exxons, chevrons, and Shells are just going to have any issue restarting production when you choke off supply, good luck. The Biden admin will just fill up the SPR tank at rock bottom prices again and absorb your little tantrum keeping the US companies mostly happy.

                            • What is funny is that Biden will do something to try and offset their meddling and the Knownothings will whine that he is hurting the strategic reserve, but if he did not thing they would whine he isn't using the Strategic Reserve.

                                What's amazing is that the big oil corps have godly amounts of capital to invest into the futures of non-oil avenues if anyone in charge had an ounce of innovation and the balls to execute on it within them. They're the last holdovers of MySpace praying that people won't keep leaving for FB.
