What I want to know is WHY ARE THE WOMEN IN YOUR FAMILY THE OWNERS OF JEEPS, AND THE MEN OWN VANS? Not to stereotype, but what's in the water at YOUR house?

Ladies........this wasn't towards you. I'm just poking fun at his masculinity. It's all in fun.

Sorry, you lost me at "Astro". I've never seen a Z71 that could hold a candle to a Jeep offroad. Maybe if by manly, you mean power windows and weak tie-rod ends.........
