I got the ECO SCREW 4x2 to replace my tried and true 02 Yukon. Really happy, tows great and I think at around 11 MPG towing it's not too bad. Really don't care too much about that since I do not tow...

I just bought the F-150 with the Ecoboost, 3.55 gears, 2 WD and towed my 2010 SAN 210 and thought it did great. I doubt it compares with an F250 Diesel but that is the real choice along with the big...

I like GM trucks but the only gasser I...

Actually I got quotes for 68K on the VLX and 82K for the CC230. Not sure who would say the 230 is a 100K boat. Either way they are different class size boats 21.5ft. VS 23. The VLX had the good old...

DO NOT buy the truck unless it has the 3.73 gear (or the 4.10 but it is rare).
I had an 01 Yukon with the 3.42, traded it for an 02 with 3.73 and still using it.

Whatever Mikeski said also.

A more balanced and better wake is your opinion. I almost bought the 2010 VLX, great boat. I think it won because it was a new design in 2009 and Malibu as usual continued to upgrade their flagship...

I'm pretty sure you would have known if you hit that bow eye area hard enough to cause damage. I figure it was a soft spot on the gel or some bow eye area flex that caused it. Problem is the dealer...
