I mean props for trying to get a consistent look across all your vehicles, but oh boy that is ugly.

I think it looks bad ass. Coolest exterior of any of the full-sized trucks.

Still think the same thing I did when I first saw it. Don't mind it at all. Think the hood and fenders look too much like a Ram, but unlike a Ram it will still run in a few years

My only issue with that truck is how comically large it is. Do most truck guys really need a vehicle that big? It's already a pain in the ass to navigate around most parking lots because of trucks sticking halfway into the driving paths, and apparently it's only going to get worse

The best is when you are in the Palliser car park and you suddenly hear a "schwing, schwing, schwing..." noise getting closer and closer, and it's buddy in his stock height half-ton slowly sharpening his radio aerial into a deadly weapon (or a stick for roasting marshmallows).

The only truck I would buy is the International MXT.

I like watching people try to load and unload stuff from their monster trucks. It used to be a truck bed was a reasonable height, now they need to build ####ing step ladders into tail gates just so you can access them.

I would if I didn't live ... well, in an urban center where they are entirely unsuitable for daily use by design.

Just finding a place to leave the bloody thing when you go somewhere is a nuisance enough.

Parking garages? Height restrictions and scraping things, even with factory ride heights.
Street parking? Every spot suitable for a normal car is too small when your vehicle is roughly the size of a school.
Parking lots? The stalls are narrow so to accommodate as many cars and SUVs as possible, meaning when your wide-load ass pulls into a spot, you are virtually guaranteed to park like a twat.

I get needing them for work, but if I need one, I'll rent one.

When I had my f150 I worked downtown. I bought the truck to tow a trailer which was a whole other mess. I had parking downtown outside. In the winter the crews would just push all of the snow to the outside edges of the lot, essentially making it smaller. I worked Eastern hours so parking in the morning was no big deal but leaving was a gongshow. I had barely enough room on either side of me, and behind me the cars were that much closer because I had a big ass truck. It took a long time to get out of there in the winter. it was a PITA

How much does a decent tint for two side windows in a small suv cost?

Most tint places list their pricing on their websites.

Does anyone know how to get water to not "stick" to a windshield or figure out why the wipers aren't properly wiping the windshield?

One of my wipers leaves a 2-3 inch "smear" in a specific spot along the wiper blade. Swapping the wiper helped a little, but not completely. When I used RainX water repellant treatment, the smear got worse rather than better which seemed bizarre.

I'm almost wondering whether there's some oil or wax in that specific spot where the wiper smeared it in the past which is causing the water to "stick". I wonder if I might have to go all out and use something like a buffer or razor blade to try and properly clean off that arc on the windshield.

I'd try some isopropyl alcohol first.

If you have a clay bar, that will work too. Claying the glass has been a detailing cheat code for me forever. It's amazing the difference it makes.

I was riding in my sons car in the rain last summer and his windshield was driving me nuts, he was leaving the wipers on for the whole drive, probably everytime it sprinkled which in Vancouver is a lot, but the rain was intermittent so they were wiping a dry surface half the time. The entire windshield was smearing and would not wipe clean. He's daft and didn't think there was anything wrong . The wipers were obviously burnt out and had rubbed off all over the windshield.

I spent a half hour with some light scrubby pads, a magic eraser, changed the wipers and brought it back to like new.
