I want something with AWD/4WD for these nasty Ice Coast winters. I'm looking at a Honda CR-V atm, as well as a Nissan Xtera. I have a few others on my list as well but those are the main ones.

I'm thinking about getting a topper (Or Cap for you East coasters and Canadians) for my truck. I hate having to throw everything in my cab every time we go eat or get out the truck!

It's a 2008 Dodge 3500 SRW Quad Cab diesel truck with a long box, it's going to look like a school bus, but whatever! It'll be handy.

Getting one that looks nice and is color match is a lot more expensive than I thought!

I am the opposite. I hate jacking up the heat. I turn the heat off or very low and just keep the heated seat on.

I was looking into them too but I heard iffy stuff about the dependability of their awd/4x4 system. I also wanted the xterra but it's basically another 4runner....with just as shitty mpg lol

You should consider making your own tonneau cover. They're super simple and super cost effective and super efficient. I'll be making one for the Baja. All you need really is to measure out the bed, choice of material for the cover, then cover the material with marine grade materials that they use for seat covers, bam. A water sealed cover for the bed. Might have to mcgiver your own locking system which should be easy enough

Last Sunday was the last day at the local area, and the weather was just too nice so I pulled the cover off, it reluctantly started after a 5 month hibernation, bungied the board to the rear luggage rack and off I went.

A bit chilly in the morning drive to the mountain, refuse to drive with the top up, but the drive home was great. And the looks pulling into the parking lot was priceless.

Tempted to do it with my final trip of the season up to Okemo on Sunday but that's a bit more of a drive and my son will be with me. Don't want to push my luck without give it a better one over.

Has anyone driven a newer Jeep Compass or Patriot? Looking at 2011-2013 ones with low miles. Great MPG for an SUV but haven't gotten behind the wheel of one yet. Also considering a '14 Jeep Cherokee, they have some pretty sweet lease deals going on.

I haven't heard of any issues with the CR-V's drive system. Then again, I haven't looked much into it yet, or known anyone who has one. And that's my main problem with the Xterra.

I had a 2005 CR-V, got it to 247K, not a single problem.

I'm not the one for pricing but when I traded it in when I got my new car I got 3k for it. Had a wrecked passenger left door and the drive shaft broke going to the rear. My mechanic took out the shaft so I went from 4 wheel drive to front. This was back in 2012


EDIT: You do know they have a like a card table int he trunk when you pull up the rear carpet and there's a well under the table too.
