Dcp584 Yea having the ability to actually go off road with it was another interst point. I have friends who already do go off roading so it would be nice to not just go along for the ride.

if thats the case then get a subaru, they actually have more inside capacity then the cherokee (at least my friends forester seemed to) and are cheaper on gas, a lot cheaper. unless your planing on actually driving off road or are in a really heavy snowfall area wouldn't get a suv.

alaric I'm thinking about either a Nissian Frontier dual cab, or a Ford Explorer Sport-Trac. They're midsize trucks. Smaller beds, but im only going to be hauling snowboards and people. We'll see.

to reply to the thread i have a f-150 4x4, nothing fancy no options just a engine and 4 beefy tires

If I had the money right now I'd be in an '04 wagon, but there's still the price difference between a '99 and an '02 or '04, but luckily my parents are helping me out a bit. College is still expensive though, and art supplies usually come before car stuff unfortunately. CURSE YOU DESIGN SCHOOL!!!!!!
