Edit: It costs $100K less than that Toyota.

Just picked this up for trips to the hill. '95 Pathfinder, little rough around the edges, and needs a few things to be tip top. Interior is a fucking pig sty lol but not ripped up and dash is good. Runs and drives great stole it for 650 I was posting in the DIY thread the other day, and thought it's been a real long time since I had a toy/project. I wanted something that was more comfortable then my work trucks.

Don't mean to hate on your ride, but we got a rental Commander when we went to Colorado last season. 4-5 of us drove it throughout the 5 day trip, and every single one of us hated how it drove, the handling, the ride quality, poor interior design, and the small legroom and cargo capacity relative to it's large exterior dimensions. And I'm a Jeep lover too, having owned 2 Grand Cherokees and prob will own another at some point. One of the other guys is also Jeep guy with a couple Wranglers in the past.

03 350z, have yet to drive it in actual snow. bear was clear the last time i drove it up there. can fit one other person and 2 boards inside it.

we had a ton of snow when we went up in my friends 08 Rav4 4x4, thing made that mountain its bitch. there was a 4x4 f250 with an 8" lift and at least 35" tires that couldnt get traction. we were just crawlin up behind him

That is not a big accomplishment. I bet it was converted to 2x2 with that lift setup. If it is an 8" suspension lift the front driveshaft angle would be too high and many people remove the front driveshaft making it 2WD and that combined with a light back-end make driving on snow and ice less than ideal, to say the least.

Nice Audi. I rented an A6 in Germany and was very impressed.

Thanks. It handles exceptionally well on snow and ice. The traction control and stability control features make it hard to get out of control, even when I try.
