My condolences. At least you can start putting away all the gas money you are saving towards your next rig, right?

I have one as a company car, with the ecotech. Really not a bad vehicle. Good luck with whatever your doing Larp. It sucks, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Maybe youll get a new rig down the road

yeah maybe someday i can find and build up a CJ8 to play with. probably when (and IF) i ever get bored with my street bikes
a Jeep just isn't a very good DD for me.

I'd rather walk or ride a bike.

Why don't you go over to glocktalk.com and tell them how you traded your Glock 23 out on a Lorcin .22 cause the ammo was cheaper.

Then maybe you could go find a women's rights forum and tell all them to get in the kitchen and make you some pie.

How much were you paying for gas a month compared to your new car payments?

I like pie but our kitchen is too small and has too many sharp corners to really enjoy it in there...

No offense, don't take this the wrong way, but I don't get it.

Unless that thing is getting WAY better mileage than I think (about 25MPG?) average it out, plus the higher payment, you wind up saving, what, $75/month?

I can't talk to loud, after I totaled out my v-8 pickup, (14 mpg) I went to a car that gets much better mileage, but my payment went down, and I'm still driving a v-8 w/ leather & power everything that'll smoke just about anything this side of a Z-28.

Makes sense then.
If you don't mind my asking, why do you drive so much?
