    Wow this place is different. I haven't been on here in a long time and most of you don't remember me who was around when I was more active and the rest never heard of me... not that there was anything to hear

    this is what I had:

    bought it like this

    traded it like this:

    this is what I traded for:

    this is how it sits now:

    P1010328_bce83ac07339c9252facda8592c36a58a809b2a9.jpg


    i traded because i got a new job that required a lot more commuting and the 15 mpg wasn't in the budget so i got the TDI diesel. a month into my job i got a work vehicle that i don't even pay gas for! now i drive my jetta maybe on weekends if i go somewhere... that's it. i have been thinking about a truck again and have started perusing all the 4x4 forums iused to frequent. just wanted to say hi ad see whats going on here. its going to take a while for me to get used to this forum lol.
