    My Dad has 3 computers at his house that still run Windows 7.
    He refused to upgrade to 10 until TurboTax won't run on the 7 a few years ago.
    Then he upgraded one of them to 10.
    He still bitches about it...

    Same Dad made my Mom use the old CRT monitor for her computer for years.
    We, me sister and I, bought her 2 flat screen monitors for mother's day a couple years ago.
    She looked at him and asked 'why didn't we do this sooner?'.
    She is disabled and uses/sits at her computer most of the day...

    My dad was the one who encouraged me to upgrade to Windows 10 but he's been doing mostly software engineering for the last 30 years. :rofl:

    I agree..

    Now that you mention that, I'm gonna rant on safety stuff:

    At work 65% of our tractors have automatic transmissions.
    The other 35% are 10 speed manual.
    I think when the rookie drivers are trained, the have drive a standard for a day or 2.
    I think they should be trained in standard tractors and run an automatic a day or two, but our management is lazy.
    So now in dispatch the rookies cry that they can't drive a standard (when dispatch gives then the keys to one) and need a NEWER automatic trans tractor.

    On other stuff, I hated the adaptive cruise tractors when we first got them, but I've grown to like it.
    Although by force of habit, I usually run with the pedal to the floor.
    99% of our tractors are governed at 68 MPH, we have a few that run 72.

    What I don't like is the auto braking collision avoidance bullsh!t.
    If I'm running the cruise and go under certain bridges, the brakes will engage HARD on their own.
    If I have the pedal down, it won't do that, another reason I run with the pedal down.

    As to seat belts;
    There is a 7 mile stretch of road, 3132, that's a loop around southwest Shreveport that take me from I-20 to I-49.
    In a semi tractor, it is like riding a roller coaster.
    My seat belt literally is the only thing that keeps me in the seat.
    The single axle tractors are much worse that the double axle twin screw tractors.
    I run that twice a day.
    I-35 going thru Sherman Texas to the OK state line isn't must better.

    The rookie divers don't realize how good they have it.
    My first tractor 1994 was a 5 speed GMC/White with manual steering, manual windows, A/C that rarely worked, no cruise, and no radio.

    ups_gmc_astro_8884012dce1b32a0bb85f6793c13f95dd77680e0.jpg

    Rant over...

    I'll agree with others, @FO LO you probably should have bought a 2018 or earlier Tundra to avoid the driver nanny stuff.
    My 2014 SR5 has some stuff on it, but no parking sensors or blind spot warnings, adaptive cruise, or anything that governs day to day driving..

    This will be my last post in this thread.

    I'm getting in my 1997 T100 WITH THREE PEDALS and heading out for the day. Ciao.

    I would love to buy a new from factory first Gen Tundra. For me personally I found it to be the right size and had everything I really needed. Probably a little too much convenience for me but I can live.

    Come on now man. We have all wondered if we are overloaded at some point. Having that visually depicted via tail lights is cool for the user and good for safety. If it's advertised in some way your outside of a vehicle's tolerances, you'd be less likely to put yourself in that situation.

    Also esier for Cops to identify unsafe loads.

    Some people like vehicles loaded with tech, some don’t. I personally prefer a middle ground. Something like a Tesla is a no go, way too much tech and no actual keyfob (using a phone as a key for me is an absolute no go, the tech geek in me worries about what a security nightmare that would be)

    Yeah, some manufacturers are loading vehicles up with tech, and some are playing it safe. They do it because it is what sells. Manufacturers conduct focus groups and surveys, and their results dictate what changing consumer tastes are. They aren’t gonna make a ‘stripped down’ version of a vehicle just to cater to the small .0000000001% of customers that want it, that means either making a separate line for those sorts of vehicles or retooling robots or messing up their supply chain. It makes cheaper sense to make basic vehicles with all the tech, all in the name of efficiency. And if their competitor is loading their vehicles with tech, then they’re gonna do it too, because its what sells.

    I think a scale displaued inside like you have with tire pressures is a good idea. Props to Ford for going down this road.

    Honestly, I'm ok with that. I'm sure every parent with a dead child due to an alcohol related incident would be also.

    I hate speed cameras because I want to speed. Not because they want to infringe upon my rights.

    That skinny pedal on the right makes my favorite sound and more I press it the better the sound!
