So, to go with Impulse's theme, what did you get from folks this year?

I got:

A pheasant hunting trip
Clothes from the wife
Ryobi Li-Ion Drill/Driver & Impact Driver combo w/ 2 batteries and charger
Money (which I used to buy a compressor and finish nailer)
Fallout 76
Air Fryer (I love this thing!)
New wallet

Those air fryers are the hot new thing, along with the instapot (aka pressure cooker).

Cash, which I'll probably end up on Tacoma parts. First upgrade is sliders. And holy moly this hobby is outrageously expensive.
Bottle of D&G Light Blue cologne.
Recliner
And I already knew I was getting because I originally wanted to my surprise my dad with it but had to coordinate with him... But a Mark Knopfler ticket in September! Super stoked about this, wanted to see him for about 20 years and his new album is killer.

Mostly gift cards from the in laws. I never know what I want before hand so it works out. Wife and I got my son a bb gun. Now all I've heard is if he shot his eye out or not. Think I might get an eye patch for him for some photo ops.

Tacoma is on my short list for a new vehicle in the next year or two. It'll likely be that, or a the new Ranger.

Do you usually buy new or used vehicles? The only thing I don't like about my Taco is Toyota's Safety Sense crap. 

I like the new Ranger. Turbo'd motors make me nervous, and apparently the oil is a PITA to change. But that fuel economy, towing rating is on point. You can also build them exactly how you want them, which is nice. Toyota doesn't do that, you can "request" the model you want but they won't build your truck the way you want. But Toyota does offer a manual in the Tacoma as well.

I'm a new car guy. Turbos and oil I'm used to. Wife's Tucson is a 1.6T and you just have to make sure to use Syn every 5k and you're good.

Buddy of mine has a '00 Ranger XLT extended cab 4x4 with 170k miles on it. He's gonna give me a price. If it's sub $3k, I'll likely buy it to be my "around town" truck and then get something more practical for my actual daily driver.

That's the way to do it, trucks suck as daily's.

That's what I did.  I keep my 05 Colorado for adventures and winter driving and drive my Mustang the rest of the time.  I'm really looking forward to the road trip back to the lower 48 this fall.  

The one thing I hate about Ford is their apparent disregard for people who do their own maintenance.  In my old Focus ST, oil changes required you to remove the bellypan, which was 10 torx screws I think just to access the drain plug.  Chevy isn't much better though.

I'm getting excited about the Jeep Gladiator.  Hopefully they don't restrict the diesel model to the top trim models like Chevy did with the Colorado and Ford did with the F-150.  I don't want a luxury land yacht.  All I want is power windows, an extended cab and torque.

I looked at what it would take to buy a diesel Hilux in Mexico and import it. It's impossible 😔

That's everyone these days. Hell, to take the air filter out of my '12 Legacy, you nearly need the jaws of life the way everything is shoehorned in and covered with plastic. Wife's Tucson 1.6T has better access to everything, but again, it's all covered in cowling to make it harder to see what you've got going on in there. They want you to take it to the dealer to maintain or fix it, that way they get a cut. Don't even get me started on Subaru and their damned fluids. Everything but gas and oil has to be their name-brand stuff due to increase operational pressures. Standard CVT fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, none of that works on a Subie anymore.

Hot air fryer and a new computer.

Agree on the fryer.  What do you think of Fallout 76.  I liked the previous ones but have heard 76 has a lot of issues.

This.  I drove nothing but jeeps for years.  (CJ-7, several Wranglers and a Grand Cherokee.)  Quit buying them because of my back (due to the ride) and because they got rid of the straight six I liked in the later ones.  I would probably never be able to drive a Gladiator but it would be fun to check one out.

This has been going on a while.  I had a new 87 Chevrolet Beretta and getting to one of the back spark plugs required either dropping the engine or removing a wheel well liner.
