    New guy here in the gump. Looking around for a 2nd gen AC or DCSB prerunner for 4x4 but seems like all the 4x4 with decent miles are out of my price range

    Welcome to Montgomery area, and Maxwell AFB. That is a good base there. My dad was stationed there years ago and I have had a few friends who were there as well. If you need some work on your 4X4 when you get it, just drop me a line. I'm about an hour and change from Maxwell, but you can ask the guys here, I do good work.

    As for finding a 2nd gen, they are a bit difficult to locate as they are HUGELY popular in Alabama. (as well as other places) jspadaro is right though, it would help if we knew what your price range is. We call all help you locate one. A lot of good ones can be found for a fair price.

    Price range- I hate to say it but as cheap as possible. I'd like to keep monthly payments for 48 month loan below 300 a month. So pending the interest rate around

    13-14k... I found a 4x4 SBAC TRD off road in LA for 12,500$ with 140,000 miles and a bed cap, not a DC... but besides that its EXACTLY what I want. The miles concern me tho because I drive a lot and if I get one its gona have to last me about 6 years.

    There we go. Good start to look at there. You can find some good deals on Craigslist as well, just be wary as there are some scam artists out there.

    Talking about CL scam artists, I have seen a lot of them out there trying to sell cars and trucks using paypal or other similar means. I was surprised however when I listed my 1999 Monte Carlo the other day I had one of those scam artists who wanted to buy my car using a similar scam. Just goes to show you that there are WAY too many dishonest people out there. I have always tried to give everyone the benefit of the doubt when I meet them, but these days it is getting harder and harder.

    They are pretty damn pathetic. Always the same scam. Anyone who checks everything before proceeding with a purchase or sale will figure it out pretty fast.

    We have a 1st gen 4x4 with 237k on it. I don't think you will have a problem with it later on. There is a guy on here with a 2nd gen with over 300k on his. And he abuses it everyday.

    Howdy Bama folk! Got a question for anyone that's willing to help.

    In August me and my son might be taking a trip up to Lineville, AL to visit a friend and his family. I am trying to find out, is there any 2WD wheeling areas near there? I see the Cheaha State Park is just west of his location and was wondering if there is any wheeling in there? I am considering just camping with my son in that state park, weather permitting. What do you guys think?

    Thanks in advance. Maybe if there are any members near there we could get together for dinner or something, but that can be determined much later down the road if this trip does in fact come full circle.

    If not. Most if us are in central alabama and Huntsville. I am sure everyone here would be more than willing to meet up for a rode
