Sorry to hear about you Ranger, but it must be kind of refreshing working on something that's Fairly simple. I really enjoyed working on my Cj-2a because it was so simple. No modern day bs to figure out just mechanicals.

Re: What's your other car?

We have 2 Honda CR-Vs for the wife and daughter. The work well on the roads of the snow belt and they are reliable and pretty easy to maintain yourself.

It does bug me that all their fluids besides oil are Honda branded but you can buy them by the case when you have 2 in the stable.

Re: What's your other car?

Cleaned up some of the unpleasantness in the thread, please don't start it up again

And to stay on topic,hubs drives a Dart GT, which is actually a cool little car for getting back and forth to work.

Re: What's your other car?

I'm retiring in Mexico. Gf and fam is from there and own property in Mexico City. When we pay off the Heep we are going to get a buy a studio apt in Zocalo Mexico City.


http://www.visitmexico.com/en/zocalo-mexico-city


Chapultepec Park is awesome

We most likely won't own a car there at all. No need. Awesome subway system and bus system. Actually taxis and all forms of transportation are great, and cheap haha

Re: What's your other car?

I looked really hard at Playa del Carmen. My wife flaked out in Monseyrrat and St. Croix, so I wasn't surprised too much. She has loads of family in upstate NY. The 2nd oldest if 54 first cousins. Hard to change that type to an Ex-Pat lifestyle

Re: What's your other car?

I am not a fan of mini vans, but I had to get one.
Bought a house in Poconos PA last summer, so I had to buy a beater/work car. I was looking for pickup trucks and mini vans, but was leaning more towards a mini van, because everything would be safer inside the car. My friend's girlfriend's dad was looking to get a new car and wanted to sell his mini van.
So I gave him $1500 and took it. He owned it since new.
2004 Kia Sedona Ex, fully loaded and had 82k miles at that time (last September). I am doing the whole renovation myself, bringing tools, material and taking out all the garbage, didn't want to destroy the jeep, so the mini van is doing the job.

Sorry for the sideways picture. Every time I post a picture on JG, from phone or computer, they come out like that.

Re: What's your other car?

2013 Ford Escape. Well that's the gf's car. In a few years I will be debating keeping my current wk2 and buying another car for fun weekends or getting whatever Jeep is out and giving the current wk2 to the gf.

Haha...I'm surprised my wife let me buy another bike after I dumped my Yamaha on I-95. Flipped over the handlebars when the guy in front of me hit the brakes, slid and hit the guardrail, then had the thing land on top of me. All I remember from the day of the accident is right after I got to work that morning - I went down on my trip home. Next thing I remember is waking up in the hospital the next day. Upper body was fine, just bruised, had some really nice rash on my knees and had to do PT for 4 weeks after it healed up. Couldn't walk for crap for 3 weeks, then had a real nice pirate limp after I went back to work until I finished my PT.

I bought my new one the day I finished my PT - stopped at the dealer on the way home and put down a deposit. Wife was in Kansas at the time dealing with family stuff. She knew I was gonna buy a new one...but apparently I should have waited until she got home to buy it
