Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

2009 Cadillac Escalade AWD, well actually I didn't trade it in. It was stolen. The GC has eased my pain.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

We sold a '96 4Runner Limited (great SUV!) and are turning in our '08 Subaru Legacy GT Limited, off lease.

The 4Runner was a great addition to our vehicle collection and got a lot of use running back and forth to our place in Wisconsin. But with the Subaru's lease term coming to an end, it seemed like a good time to get back down to two primary vehicles.

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

Traded this in


and selling this to my dad


The idea was to consolidate into 1 vehicle. I love the luxury package with my Laredo X but I'm beginning to regret selling my truck to my dad. I would rather keep it and turn the jeep into more of a street Jeep. Throw some srt reps on with some nitto terra grapplers to keep some offroad capabilites. But the plan is to get some black 17's and some toyo mt's. If my dad weren't looking forward to getting the truck I would keep it. Had it for 7 years and it's the first nice vehicle I bought.

my adventures with the f150:

my adventures with the f150:

I'm not sure but I've heard that the Ford F150 is the most popular truck in America. Everyone I know here in Kuwait who's bought one swears by it to be the toughest truck. The problem here is, people who buy pick ups in Kuwait barely ever use it. I always tell them you'll get more utility from an SUV. It's become more of a trend than utility. There's nothing big here that people really carry. I remember in Canada if I saw a pick up it was mainly for off-road and utility purposes (carrying lumber, large items etc). Here it's turned into a "look at my cool pick up". I understand the trend, I mean even I love the way pick ups look but I just can't see the utility behind them here in Kuwait. I know the roads are rough here with potholes and what not but it's not like it's really destructive. If you have a lowered sports car you'll have some issues with some roads here but apart from that, the roads are decent. Don't get me wrong, I love pick ups and I've driven an Avalanche (which I think is bloody awesome apart from it's ridiculous size).

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

I went from a 2000 Cherokee Sport 4X4 to my 2001 WJ Limited. Sold my 2000 to a guy that always wanted one and whos eyes lit up like a lil kid on Christmas when he bought and drove off with it. I had told him straight up that it was a lil rough but told him the things I had fixed, replaced, and updated while I had it (along with the receipts) and he was even more happier. He asked if the rear wiper and washer worked, I told him yes, and I swear I thought he was going to cry! lol (and this dude was a 6'3", burly log truck driver that probably could have bench pressed the Jeep lol).
