Considering the inflated prices out here that’s not a bad deal.

Leominster is a long way from Texas, TL1000R...

I have a '93 Ford Ranger 4x4 Splash model with 84K miles. Not perfect, but clean with no rust...I had to check YouTube to learn how to roll down the windows. Silly crank handles in each door make the windows go up and down...but you can do it with the key out of the ignition. Imagine that...But the side mirrors are power driven...go figure.

For years in Northern Arizona they used black volcanic cinders on the roads in the winter. About the size of pea gravel, it was non corrosive but hell on windshields. Now in the last few years they use a orange colored ice melt they claim will not hurt your vehicle. Don't see many rusted out wheelwells, but it's not kind to the pine trees when it melts and runs off the roads.

Yeah that Toyota's to nice for me would of liked to of gotten a hold of it before the restoration on it.

Job I had way back when we had mid 90's rangers as company vehicles, 4 bangers and they were horrible probably a mix of being a 4cyl and poor maintenance, hit a small hill on the highway and you'd lose 10mph even if you floored it.

You Jeep-aholics out there may want to check out Amazon Prime's Grand Tour, Season 3, Episodes 2-3 that just aired this week.

The idiot Brits had some interesting experiences with a Wrangler.

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.
No pics as it’s completely stock except for seat covers. Got it as the family trickster to replace my trailblazer ss that had to go.

Zeda3000, I would love to have your Jeep Cherokee, love the idea of turbodiesel Jeep here for the refining kits available.

I have two more cats at home. But generally if you have cats at home , Jeep at garage and Canik in hand. It is mean you heat the Jackpot. :-BD

@Maximumdarkside I think Since 2006 - 2018 All jeeps was Diesel only in most of EU. Grand Cherokee coming with Mercedes Enginee and Transmission which is quite good and powerfull. I have no any extra kit or something but i can climb to mountain without problem.

'56 Willys, it's up on blocks right now, just rebuilt the transmission, (Not one re usable piece inside, now waiting for funds to recover, as it has the same issues with the transfer case. It's obvious not everyone that's worked on it, in it's 64 years was a mechanic! But, it's coming along.....
