Thanks, bro. Yea, I'm fine. Just a little sad. There was *nothing* wrong with Truck Norris!! Now I have to start all over again!!

I did see a couple WK2 SRTs for like 48k -checked the financing, and it's ONLY $1000/month!!! I don't think it'd be worth the cost of the divorce, and she'd prolly get it in the settlement anyway!! And it'd be a shame! She drives like a granny!!!! The Vanborghini oughtta be GOLD!!

Yeah use cars.com. Best site IMO. You can select whether you want a limited Laredo overland or SRT to make life easier.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

My mom drove mine. She handed it down to me... I could have had a chance to upgrade ANYTIME! I just had a great bond and time with my rig I kept it.

On top of that, it'd be a "salvage title", and the could be a bugger!!

Refresh my memory, hit and run, impact to the rear? I know you said something about it a few days back but I can't remember exactly and I'm not digging through the posts...

Initially I thought it was hit-and-run (to the point I called the police to report it as such). Jack-wad ran me off the road, through bushes, rocks and trees into the opposer side of the road -facing oncoming traffic. Damage is all over: whole right side, good, bumper left front And rear QP, both mirrors are hosed, left door doesn't open. The one place w/o damage is the roof and lift gate.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

That is *exactly* what I was thinking, bro. I've arty taken off the SRT petals. I'm going to put the original throttlebody back on Saturday morning. I have to find out if I can take the CAI off or if I have to leave it. Hopefully I can take out the head unit, too.

This whole thing is just a colossal Charlie Foxtrot.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I'm glad I didn't spend any money on the underdrive pulley or the max power thing... It was DAMN close to happening, too!!
