    I need to buy a truck this year for tax purposes and have been searching pretty hard. Got it narrowed down to 2 right now and want the valuable opinion of RDP as to what I should do. 4x4, crew cab and white are what I want. I was really crushing hard on the new Silverado's, but if going...

    Used Truck Prices

    Seems like they are pretty crazy right now. I found better deals this weekend on new versus used. 1/2 tons are out of control.......like $50k for 2 year old truck with 40k miles on it. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Lake Powell Challenge Cancelled

    Just read that this awesome event has been cancelled because of the scamdemic. Who wants to wager that Desert Storm is next?? My heart breaks for the charities involved that depend on these events and the generosity of so many amazing people. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Need some prop advise

    New Empire / Carrera Boats

    Does anyone have the scoop on what the heck is going on with this guy? I keep seeing his stuff pop up on Facebook but it is all very odd. He is using pics of what appear to be Tahiti Boats but he has crossed out the Tahiti badging and even went as far as to place "New Empire" over Tahiti's...

    Any boat mechanics open on Sunday?

    We had an amazing run from Blythe to Fishers yesterday but unfortunately didn't make it very far going back. Sprung a leak in my power steering and all the fluid ended up in my starboard sponson. Hoping that I can find someone to look at it in Parker or Havasu today. Any recommendations...

    OSB Questions - mfg bashing / classifieds

    @RiverDave curious, we have some slight bashing of the manufacturer and people expressing displeasure with the price, putting "doubt in a potential buyers mind." How is this any different than making negative comments on a Facebook classified ad?? Asking for a friend.
