  • I got tired of waiting for Tesla to release their pickup truck, so I made my own. And I named it Truckla. WATCH HOW WE BUILT IT: ruclip.com/video/jKv_N0IDS2A/video.html

    My favorite part about his is that she's making it a sort of parody of all the truck commercials that run every damn day. Thanks, Simone, for the laugh. Also all the other laughs you've given me. You're awesome.

    Wow!!!! Even you for the RUclip money makers don't have enough technical understanding how much tesla is going the wrong way? I mean every primary school kid understands that, even Greta does it in some way, although she only didn't want to go to school anymore to learn about environment and nature the right way. 😉 I really expected more of you as a technician, sorry to make your believes and wishes turn out wrong. I would love to see some of you influencers finally understand the world, so I already gave up on the big ones that even you love... We are suppressed by people like you and live in poverty so that you can drive Tesla's for a lil amount of money. Really? Shame on you that you are keeping up with the heavy oil and normalgas people over there!

    I can honestly say I’d rather take my 1996 1/2 ton ram with the 360 mopar v8 out on the trails than an electric toy car meant to run on roads with the back cut off and no additional suspension work done. Plus if you’re out in the boonies and run out of battery juice, you’re fucked. If I run out of gas in the boonies, I’ll fill it up with the 5 gallon gas can I got in the bed.

    Hopefully Elon smokes a fat one and figures out that the Model X platform would be easy to turn into a pickup truck; less on luxury, more on utility.
