i prefer not to due to gas prices but yes.. I had an old pickup I bought for 1k and sold it for 1500 2 years later.. after commuting in the jeep for 7 months, it would have been cheaper to keep the pickup.

If you build your jeep so big and bad that it's really easy to get threw everything out there, then your going to get bored.
