Thumbs up First vehicle in 12 years! HEMI 07!

Yes the title is true, I have not owned my own vehicle in 12 years. I have been driving the company's ride...got laid off so needed a new ride. We bought the wife a new '10 Ram Crew 4X4 Big Horn with the Hemi in August. (Yes her truck is bigger than mine... but it is how you use it right?) That thing sold me on the Hemi engine and when I got let go I knew what I wanted. This is my first 4X4, always had rear wheel drive or front drive company crap. I have already had some help from jeepgcoman here, thanks!! I am really enjoying this thing, 2 big snows and I got to play in both. So far even 3' drifts only slow her a little.
By the way I think she needs a name. White made me think of several names, but "PURE KANE----SHUGAH!" seems to have stuck.

Thanks all for a great forum!
John

Re: First vehicle in 12 years! HEMI 07!

Thanks everyone. I am now a salesman for a small local fire sprinkler company. I was working for the worlds largest and putting 30K per year on Chevy Malibu's. That was just in Kansas and half of Missouri. Now I have 6 states! Going to give the Jeep quite a workout. I figure if I take care of her I should be able to run it up to 200 to 250K. Then trade up to a 2010!! Or keep it for my toy.

Nothing is better than the confidence the Jeep gives and I don't have to be embarassed meeting customers or taking them to lunch. I am sure this forum will be keeping my sweet ride running for a lot of miles. 48k and counting...
