Another couple years and I will be upgrading my rig. Likely a used crew cab Tacoma but we will see. The Toyotas have been very good to me over the last 25 plus years.

After 23-years (and 170k miles) my faithful '01 Off-Road package Dodge has coughed up her transmission. I'll likely fix that and then hand her off to my son. CZs comments on comfort ring very true for me as well. Contemplating what my next recreational ride might be.

Lots of spectacular adventures with this one...

I was very suspicious of turbocharged units up until now, but my next rig will likely have one.

Shrapnel: beautiful hammergun. Bar-in-wood with a lifter. Even the the engraving is first-rate. What are the specs?

It is a William Powell lift lever 12 gauge shotgun. I saw it on the internet and had to buy it. It locks up tight, I have been shooting clays all summer with it and grouse this fall. I had Charlie from Hill Rod And Gun measure it and he said it was not in proof, but it has since been proofed with both 2 and 2 1/2 inch shells. I have several of these older hammer guns and love them. This was made in 1871 and thanks to Steve Helsley, I found out where and when the gun was originally shipped.

It must be a pleasure to hunt and shoot clays with it! Has cocking indicators, right?

If you are speaking of the William Powell gun, it would often have load indicatiors , which would be printed on the firing pin's exposed sides. Often these pins were gold plated.
