Well, as many of you already know, I totaled my Jeep Cherokee 3 weeks ago. After settling up with the insurance company, I went shopping....

I looked at a lot of vehicles around here and on the net. I finally found the right thing at the right price on eBay. So after working on the price and arranging the financing and purchase, I finally flew down to Dallas this past Sunday to drive her home. So without further adieu, please welcome the newest member of my family.....

plan on towing a home maybe 4 or 5 cars?....



That is a monster quite differant then the jeep. What made you go with the truck over another jeep? Was it the power addiction? ;)


If your in the same situation as what killed the jeep I would feel bad for the other person you face in this truck its just a monster.

That is gonna be a nice combo if you ever use it to tow the bird. A nice white truck towing a nice white bird.
Truck looks awesome!

Nice SW

Now get that restrictive down pipe off there and replace it with the aftermarket one, 5" exhaust, a tune by "The Man" and your off on low 16 high 15 second passes.(LOL)
Save the nitrous for the intercooler.:uppoint:

I personally don't see a point in a truck with a short bed :zdunno:

Does look good, but that is the longest shifter I've ever seen, you could scratch your @ss halfway through the 3-4 shift!

Style my friend...style :cool:
Now I'm even more carnfused...you want style, buy an mn12. If your buying a truck, it should be for hauling everything and anything. Guess I'm too stuck in the past to understand some of today's "style".

Yeah!!

Unfortunately you are lost!!! Not everyone wants or needs a fullsize bed but do need more passenger space. Besides, its his truck!!

I bought the PowerStroke for its towing capacity. I bought the SuperCab so the kids can ride with. I bought the 4x4 because we have just enough bad weather around here to need it. I bought the shortbed (and also NOT the CrewCab) so that the thing would be reasonable to park. I very rarely haul anything that I need an 8' bed for.

And yes, it will be VERY nice when I have to take my car, the canopy, table & chairs, coolers, goodies, etc. to the shows I go to. Like was said above the white truck towing the white car will just look GOOOOOD together.
