Just orderd a new toad

I have been towing my old 94 Jeep YJ, and it is a great little vehical, even kind of rare with a 4 cyl and auto transmission. The only problem is it's a little short on ammenities. When it is very hot, we like AC, was the biggest problem. I also have my old Tow vehical, that I use for work, it's a 2002 1 ton dually crewcab Duramax. I have decided to thin things out a little, I am selling the 94 YJ and the dually and I have orderd a 2007 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon. These are very nice little trucks fully loaded it has air, tilt, cc, pw, pl, 6 disk CD with 8 speakers, a frredom top that you can pull up to 3 pannals out for open air. They now have a V6 in them and are fairly fuel efficent. I can use this vehical for work (45,000 miles a year) and as a toad, so t is a great comprimise. And I can sell my 5 year 200,000 mile old dually and get enough out of it to pay for the new jeep. I took one for a drive yesterday and they are very smooth and quite. Here are some pics of old and new

Will do. I took one for a drive the other day and was very impressed. I am a large guy (6'2" 350 lbs) and there was lots of room for my fat ass. The seats were comfortable and the dash was well layed out. Ride was suprisingly smooth (a lot smooter than my 1 ton dually) and handeling was fairly quick. Power seemed very good with the new V6 and the trans (auto) shifted well. Very minimal road and wind noise at up to 85 mph was a nice suprise. I orderd on board navigation, built in Serious sat radio and 18" wheels. We spent 2.5 hrs running around in the new Jeep and was very impressed. Lots of room in the back seats for 2 full sized adults (or 3 skinny ones) and still lots of cargo room behind the rear seats. I really like the 3 pannals that remove on the roof, or you can take the whole roof off. Price of the Rubicon fully loaded including a new tow bar, base plate and wired for lights from the back of the trailer including taxes was a very respectable $35,200 Canadian out the door. I got a guy willing to give me $35000 for my dually when the Jeep comes in, so how can I resist. A new dually will run me close to $70,000, so this works better all the way around.
