    Ok, I know it's not a GM and no I haven't gone gay. :doah: The wife has wanted one for a long time so we bit the bullet and got her a new daily driver. Just had to tell someone. :D

    Reminds me of the old CJ-8 Scrambler. I kinda like those...at least you can fit more than a luchbox in it.

    lol. My boss pays over $850 a month for his Escalade. Every once in a while I ask him what its like having a car payment bigger than my rent (1000 sq ft + shop + 2 acres) payment... lol!

    I agree the lwb is awkward looking, especially a low stocker, but the difference of 11" vs 23" in the very back was too restrictive.

    Bash it as a DD if you want but that's what she wanted. Over the years she's let me spend thousands of dollars on my projects and toys (crew cab, K5, previous K10, tools, etc) without complaint. She's one heck of a gal, if she had said Mecedes I would have busted my a$$ to buy it for her. :deal:

    Hey, more power to you. If that payment fits in your budget, than more power to you. If I could afford it, my wife would drive an SC400... until then, the Saturn will have to do.

    The unlimited is the only way to fly. I have always liked the longer versions such as the Scrambler much better than the short ones. As a DD the longer Jeep makes much more sense.

    Heck I pay $500/mo for my G.M. and it don't wheel like that. It tows everything though.

    Nice Jeep:waytogo: :waytogo:

    Thanks guys! I'm looking forward to driving and maybe doing some light wheelng with it (if/when she lets me :crazy: :D ).

    You know, I've been saving and buying gears / Doubler / soft top / etc for my K5 project for a while now and this thing is set up right out of the box. :pimp: Too bad they don't make a K5 you can buy like that. :doah:Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the hunt and build just as much as the next guy but man this was just too easy.
