    Its a bicycle.
    yeah, dont have one yet!
    im a jeeper,

    and dont get me wrong. my TJs a great little rig.
    nothing like putting the top down,
    or being able to fly off the road,
    into a fence,
    over a lawn gnome,
    kill a pine tree,
    and
    anhilalate a mail box.

    and being able to drive home, with only 500 bucks worth of body damage!

    but a jeep handles like one. every breeze is a new steering opportunity.

    my 0-60 is 43 seconds. my torquey 4.0 inhales gas like paris hilton downs cosmos (wow, what a dated referance.)

    and so on.

    i feel like its time for a change, getting the money together is another problem. as im upside down in my jeep(...financialy, not literally.) and a good 05+ seems to startat about 15!

    so, yeah. thats it. i hope i dont troll it up to much here. I'll try not to post unless it actually does something!

    Welcome to TW, so what do you have planned for your truck when you get it? And by the way you owe me $8 for the gnome.

    I just sold my TJ after buying a Taco.

    But my Taco is just the DD, I have an old CJ for fun.

    see, thats the way to go!

    if i could afford to have two vehicles i would never sell my jeep.

    but its just so coarse on the highway, I'm getting tired of trying to stay in my lane on windy days!

    how hard is it to find a 05+ V6 auto 4x4 taco in good shape for about ten?

    im guessing really...

    man i wish i was out of college, i could just order one new!

    I know where you're coming from. The TJ got relegated to the "family" vehicle, a task which it is useless at, so it had to go. I actually like driving the Taco on the freeway, which I hated the TJ for. However, in town, the TJ kicks! Parking the Taco (DC LB), is a 747 type thing,... the TJ was a Cessna :D

    yeah, under 45 MPH the TJ is the most fun you can have on four wheels!

    i love scaring people when i park. i can swing in backwards and know im only missing the side of their G35 by like 2 inches!

    but man, when the time comes. im really gonna miss the convertable.

    there will definately be a nice webasto type sunroof in whatever i buy next.

    i dont care if i have to sell plasma to finance it!

    i really wish toyota made a convertable!
