    We always use "Ready". It is the most phonetically distinct on that we found.

    Great. If you cannot test drive there, I recommend that you find what dealers will be at the show and visit them for a drive beforehand. I took my test drive in December in Ontario -- in a...

    According to this blog http://blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2006/07/2007_gmc_acadia.html , the Acadia has a unibody, and not a frame like a truck-based SUV would have. This is not an appropriate...

    I use the stock pumps to fill my rear 750's. It takes 10-15 minutes if I do it when the boat is moving (i.e. comparable to the Tsunami when adrift). It takes perhaps 20+ minutes for the stock pumps...

    Have you considered the 4Runner? It can be had with the same 4.7L V8 as the Sequoia, but it's only a (largish) mid-size SUV. Plus, the tow package brings it up to a 7,000 lb capacity.

    Jones, under what conditions were you riding behind an XLV? How was ballast and crew distributed?

    As you go over the chop in a hard turn, you can slide over substantial air pockets. I have noticed them in both directions on occasion. I only notice it when driving with no ballast.

    What I should have said that 30MPH is the speed at which I stop worrying about how many cottagers have me in their gunsights. :-)

    Replying to Topic 'Looking at a new 07 XLV'

    I have a 2005 XLV. This is definitely not a boat that is appropriate for skiing! It's too heavy and deep-hulled to make a small wake below 30MPH.

    I agree with qb12. I have a 2005 XLV, and it is a really good wakeboarding boat. However, it just cannot generate a suitably small wake for skiing, no matter how you fiddle with the wakeplate or...
