    LOL

    Newborns are all rather odd looking.. but for a newborn he's a pretty good looking one! I looked like a total alien.

    Man, I was asking myself that the other day, which do I start selling first, guns or lights? I've never sold a gun..... though I did buy some with the same hope to gain value over time. I'm sure a kid would make me sell pretty much anything rather quick....

    What bright eyes!

    Nov-Mu received today. Ha. Fun light! Great way to become familiar with this UI, coming from dumb lights to fenix / olight / zebra and more recently Prometheus. Thank you!

    The first time I turned on the E21A 2000k 9080 Armytek Tiaro Pro, it was daytime and I was like yuck so orange. Then a few months later I used it at night and fell in love! Once your eyes adapt, it is no longer orange. It is near identical to candle light and you can make out all the colors easily with the high CRI. I also have the Clemence modded Skilhunt H04RC with this emitter and the FF NOV-MU.

    Which lights did you try the 2000k in? You should start offering some E21A mods. You can get the mcpcb from Clemence. They are of the highest quality!

    Gray then black out the windows. You'll most likely keep the gray longer than the blue.
    I drive my trucks well over 225k miles...so I like a color that I don't mind having for a while.
    White and gray are timeless.

    Do you like your Ford?

    TBH, new Fords put me off, I know too many people who have any 2010+ Ford and they are all littered with problems, only one is a Fiesta ST manual that has been pretty solid.

    If she wants a truck, I'd go for a Chevy for a new model. Or a Tacoma, but those are expensive, but then used becomes a possible option maybe....

    What about a Subaru like a Forester?

    She wants something extra fuel efficient

    Tacoma n Colorado are not efficient and r too pricey

    If youíre set on a hybrid, only Toyota/Lexus has had a proven track record of reliability. And they have nickel or lithium based models to choose from.

    Yah but no hybrid trucks. Also Toyota RAV4 is the next best thing and it's 10K more.

    Other than unknown reliability this 24K hybrid truck is unbeatable in terms of value

Now it seems to be running good but who knows. Overall I love the truck as long as it continues to run the way it does now. I got it for 12K off MSRP at 33K so thats the best part about it.

    Or a Tacoma, but those are expensive, but then used becomes a possible option maybe....I dont want anything used. Its a gift for her so I would like it brand new. Plus we are not fans of Tacomas. 17mpg is no no for how slow and small it is. Plus its too pricey anyways.


    What about a Subaru like a Forester? She is not a fan of most compact crossover.

    Ahh, I see! Good points. Tough to argue with, I didn't think that was a hybrid! Interesting setup, it does make sense to buy new in that case for sure. I don't know if I will ever buy a new car, but if I were buying a Hybrid/ Electric I probably would. Ford is pushing pretty hard into that territory. Jeeze that's a pretty low price too! Impressive for a hybrid small pickup, starting at 20K.... really are in the future!

    The blue one.

    I've never been a new-car-guy. However, trying to purchase a used truck in the NW is insane right now. The prices are SkyHigh!

    I didn't take today's whack market into account. Funny, might make more sense than not to buy new now.....

    Never even heard of it haha. Sounds like you've done your research and know what you want. Personally I'm always warry of getting a new model. No track record and they usually haven't worked out all the kinks. Curious why she wants a truck though when you already have a full size truck.

    If it wasnt for the crazy low price and hybrid 40MPG feature I wouldn't consider it. I do want AWD but you need to upgrade to the 2.0 turbo to get that option which will bring MPG down to 25mpg. No thanks. I got enough fast vehicles.

    She is a truck gal. Most asian gals arent. Always prefer it over SUVs and Crossover. The 40MPG and 24K price does it. FOrd hybrids and CVTs are going to be a bit scary but who cares. At least there will be warranty for a while hahah.

    Itís usually a good idea to pass on a new model car until the bugs get worked out by the maker in a couple of years. Especially a cheap new model with newish technology. There are lemon laws for a reason.
