Re: My first recovery didn't go so well

This is what I don't understand about off roading; why would the guy attempt to climb that rock, just because it's there? He had piles of room (looks like it anyway) to go around and continue on his...

Re: JD Power Initial Quality

Well remember that you're a "jeep faithful" guy, and nothing wrong with that of course; but your loyalty probably runs much deeper than guys like me who are new to the brand and the GC. My only...

Re: $50k+ is a lot of money for a new vehicle...

It most definitely IS different ways of looking at things, no "suppose" needed :). I agree that 50K is NEVER a wise financial move. It's a luxury, pure and simple, which is why I say at his age he...

Re: $50k+ is a lot of money for a new vehicle...

The OP sounds quite young yet (the mention of toddler). He has "just" started making a good wage (the mention of 2 or 3 years). The worst thing to do (in my opinion) is drop 50K on a car.
