thought of that

 

got shut down

 

here is my list of rigs

 

1989 toyota x-cab built 5.29 duals 37 irocks main rig

 

90 comanche beater wheeler

 

88 xj freebie not road safe

 

1986 single cab f350

 

1981 f250 single cab on 35s

 

1974 f150 on 36s

 

1986 j10 on 35s

 

1988 toyota x-cab on 33s

 

1998 durango wrecked rebuilder

 

1985 ford ranger on 32s

 

her question is am i willing to have just 2 rigs wheeler and tow rig daily driver. Also it need to hold all of us while on the trail and getting there comfortably, She has a brand new HHR wich is good but we all need to be able to go camping and wheeling.

 

I don't think her request of me making the list a lot smaller is to much. She has supported every choice i have made including my spending 13k on just my toyota last year.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

 

If it were up to me, I'd go looking for one of the original, stretched 2-door Unlimiteds from the first year they were offered, when they still had the 4.0L engine.

 

Either that, or graft the back of an MJ to the frint of a 4-door XJ. But that's a lot of work if you're taking care of a rug rat.

My personal opinion, do with it what you want:

 

Keep the Jeeps. This is a no brainer.

Get rid of the Toys.

Get rid of the Ranger.

Prune the herd of FS Fords

Buy a decent XJ for her/family DD/wheeling

After fixing up above XJ and having taken all usable parts of the freebie, junk what's left.

 

Possibly fix the Durango for a tow rig to hold the family.

My first thought when I saw your post was...get an XJ. Since you don't like them, I would then have to go along with trimming the herd and agree with Eagle on the TJ Unlimited ('03-'04 Rubicon if possible) as the family wheeler. Plenty of room and a capable rig right out of the box. :cheers:

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!. it's not every day that you learn a part of you will go on after you check out. The only thing is, now you have to look for the service manual that goes with the new addition :brows:

 

Second, I agree with Mvusse :

I know you said you don't care for XJ, and it appears she has been quite reasonable with your passion...er, hobby :D and unless you really like Fords that's where I'd start.
