Yeah. My friend is now at Ohio Dtate has a 99 with a 4 cyl. Calls it his black girlfriend. My truck just wont fit and is to long for a smooth ride on the couple thousand miles if trails here around Eglin AFB. Im not really worried about mileage. Im sure it will get better than the truck. No clue what insurance would be. And aftermarket is great. And im just a high school senior working 2 jobs. About to be 3. I pay for all i have and bust my a$$. I still love a nice truck though.

No problem. I've got to get used to that. I don't feel like I'm worthy of all the thanks I've been getting.

I wouldn't say upgrading. I'm keeping the truck. The jeep is going to be my pride and joy though. Thanks
