    This is my new vehicle, the first new one for me I always get new vehicles for my wife but I told hre this one is for me I deserve it. I just Retired from the US Army after 17.5 years in the service after an injurie with a roadside bomb in Iraq. At this time I'm doing better and started to study trought VA. I hope I get the answers that I need for my planned modifications. Thank you in advance. Walde.........
