Re: Ski car or ski truck?

On my third Subie. First two were Legacy wagons, now have an Outback wagon.  Running snow tires on all of them.

Re: Ski car or ski truck?

On our second Suby Outback.  Also have a Jeep Grand Cherokee.  The suby with snows beats the jeep hands down in snowy conditions.  Plus the suby's have great crash ratings, almost as safe as a Volvo in a crash.  
We use a Yakima box on the roof and have tons of room.

Pickup, Silverado extended cab with a cap.Half a load of sand in the back with tarp over it, couple of shovels. Plenty of space. Lots of pickups midweek.

Suby outback for the wife, F150 extended cab for me. Both work well for our lifestyles. When mileage counts, we take the outback. Nothing beats the ride of a pickup.

Yep, I'm down with the truck thing. When I'm not on my sled or ranger I drive a Titan Crew

The Titan is  GREAT truck. Hard core truck guys think you have to go American. My next vehicle is probably going to be Frontier. Hopefully sooner than later.
I'll take boilerplate ice over wet snow any day

You should inform your hard core truck guys that the majority of "American" made trucks are built in either Canada or Mexico. The Titan (and Frontiers) are built in Smerna TN USA

That's awesome, I didn't know that. I think Ford trucks are still made in the U.S. tho. Every Nissan vehicle I have driven I love. They just have smooth handling. Hondas are great too, but they don't make trucks. I don't like Subies. They are in general noisy, and handle weird due to poor suspension design. (The Impreza is the one exception)

 You can have some fun with these guys.

The first digit in your VIN# is how you can tell. 1 = made in USA, 2 = Canada, 3 = Mexico, and both 4 & 5 = USA as well.
