Except you’d LS swap it

Plenty of room for front AND rear LS engines.

No Comment... :D

No one noticed that it has a 300C front end grafted on it? :D Although it technically isn't the correct front clip being on a Magnum SRT8. To do it right, they should've done the 300C SRT8 front clip which has a couple changes vs, the regular one on there.

Eyeing the Explorer ST (minus the optional leaky washer fluid), Durango RT and a long shot Lincoln Aviator.
Explorer ST for checking all the boxes for my needs minus towing that I’ll probably rarely if ever do. Safety rating is good, mpg’s are good for what it is and I like the way they look inside and out.
Durango RT in case I want shit mpg’s, higher insurance due to theft and the ability to tow more. But V8 grumbles!
Lincoln Aviator because they’re a better looking more refined version of the ST but with softener suspension.

Not that I want or need to get rid of my 10 year old Escalade, it’s only got 116K on it, no rust, still looks great, has never given me any real problems and I wouldn’t hesitate to drive it across the country at any time or in any weather with my family in it. I won’t get much of shit for a trade in on it so I might just keep driving it until the doors fall off or it starts to become a money pit.

I need a new DD. My 2009 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 has 170k miles on it and the trans seems to be starting to slip when its cold.

I've been eyeing the 2018-2019 G90 5.0 for a bit, and they finally seem to bee creeping down below 40k into the mid 30's now. Hoping to keep one for a long time, so lower mileage would be preferable.

Your 2009 Hyundai 9 mos ago was probably worth 10k and now that market dropped it’s probably worth 2k

I had a buddy over for dinner last night and was showing him the used Genesis G80 prices. $60K cars selling a few years old for less than half the sticker price. He sent me a text today after he got to Arizona showing me he bumped up his rental car to a G80 so he can check it out.
New ones are way fancier than the 17-20 ones.

I'm all over the place, as usual.

It's largely going to come down to whether or not we move and get a mortgage again.

Bored with my TDI Passat and thinking about sending it down the road but it's so cheap to operate that my inner Jew just can't let go.
If we don't move I might make this happen. Or relegate it to wifey duties as she doesn't care. I'd put her A6 on a lift and use it for our highway car.

Potential replacements:
RCSB F150, 5.0/Whipple.
Duramax 1/2 ton Denali - would think about sending my LBZ if we went this route.

I also am seriously thinking about sending my C10 this spring once the market turns around and replacing it with a HC redeye but they gotta come off the stupid pricing list.
Is your lbz rotted

New changes to the body (lights) and a couple on the interior but the 17-20 cars are the same platform. Lotus tuned. Plus, they're half the cost. $70K is a no. $25-30K is a maybe. Pick up an extended warranty for $3,500 and count on the fact that the prior owner was probably not a 17 y.o. kid.

I’m saying the interior is far nicer and fancier and the sport has cooler stuff like rws.

And actually no, the 21+ is on a different platform entirely.
