    Mine is a daily driver that gets used as a truck when it needs to be.
    One mod done; looks like a blind woodsman hacked it out of a rotten log. In the planning stages of a mod that will make me look like the cheapest bugger alive.

    I don't really want to be thrashing the almighty crap out of a thing that's worth more than everything else I own combined, and is a key part of my livelihood.

    Once it's paid off and I get to have a big toy budget again, I might look at some sort of hobby Jeep. (Seems like a cool old CJ might cost less than upgrading the Taco.)
