    What Radar Detectors are you Running?

    Back in December of 2017 ordered a Uniden and another item from Radar Roy. Waiting for the Uniden to be in stock and before the order was shipped I cancelled the other item. Took several attempts and was solved one step before "credit card dispute". No idea why the difficulties on his end...

    Tonneau Cover Pics

    I have an Extanq snap cover and have been using them since 2001. I have this cover on my 2001 Dodge Ram and my 2019 Ram. Cold weather effects it and it can be difficult to get back on. In winter I need to use a heater inside the bed so it will stretch and fit. There is some degree of...

    Anyone have a suggestion for the damn red light and speed cameras !!!!!!!

    If I go into Manhattan by myself it is with my "feet" or my motorcycle. Motorcycle in Manhattan is a challenge depending on time and place and I would not use it as a daily mode of transportation. The Ram is great and I love the comfort but it is tough if is your only vehicle and live and have...

    Anyone have a suggestion for the damn red light and speed cameras !!!!!!!

    Into NYC from NJ is $15.00 cash or 10.50-12.50 for EZ Pass depending on time. One way toll, no toll from NYC to NJ. Daily commuters and Staten Island residents get discounts. Verrazano most expensive in US...

    About to buy my first full-size truck

    I have the cloth bench and I am very happy with my comfort level, center console and adaptability for a 6th passenger. But the bench is not a true bench seat as the consoles can be swapped out from the bucket to the bench and vice a versa. Sorry for your situation and seems that there should...

    Anyone have a suggestion for the damn red light and speed cameras !!!!!!!

    NYC has a population of over 8 million people. It has a lot to offer with a corresponding price tag. The problem is the price tag keeps going up. Plenty of people moving out. Governor Cuomo blames it on the weather (total BS). I don't know why people would move to Pennsylvania for a change...

    If you use plate cover don't park on street, Traffic Enforcement will bang you. My dad got nailed when his driveway was done over. He lived on a dead end street. I witnessed them hit the block at 7:20 AM and 5 PM the same day. $65 fine based on link below. The link goes into more detail...

    Screen went black on second drive, cold weather

    Three times for my 8" nav screen (turning radio on/off did nothing in my cases), two occasions OK on next start up, one corrected itself in 2-3 minutes. Need to keep a log on situation. Can't see the dealer doing much at this point with an intermittent problem of this nature.

    Anyone have a suggestion for the damn red light and speed cameras !!!!!!!

    NYC - if not red light camera, if not speed camera, still have bus lane ($115) and Mayor DeBozo's Vision Zero initiative Pedestrian Walkway ($165). Received a notice in mail I did not pay a summons for blocking a pedestrian walkway. No ticket on car because I never park blocking a pedestrian...

    Anyone have a suggestion for the damn red light and speed cameras !!!!!!!

    It works that way in NY also. Neighbor's wife (he is a NYPD civilian IT employee) got a ticket by NY State Trooper for the same BS. Revenue for local town was explained to me. I have no legitimate idea where the $$$s go.

    Anyone have a suggestion for the damn red light and speed cameras !!!!!!!

    NYPD is probably not that concerned about your plate, better things to do. Traffic Enforcement Agents (aka meter maids) on the other hand will probably bang you if they can. One of the TV channels had helped a person correct a bogus ticket for a "damaged" plate. Grew up on a dead end street...

    Speed limit 25 mph, ticket 10 mph above speed limit. Pre mayor deblasio 30 mph unposted speed limit. By the time he is out of office there will be no 2 or 3 lane highways for cars (will be bus lanes). You must drive at night to go faster than 15 to 20 mph in NYC.

    Anyone have a suggestion for the damn red light and speed cameras !!!!!!!

    In NYC laying off the gas pedal is not enough. Second revenue generating camera in NYC is located on the service road shortly after exiting the Staten Island Expressway (misnomer) at South Ave. exit. If you "lay off gas pedal" without"hitting brake pedal" you will be over the speed limit at...
