Bittersweet...

Well I finally got my truck back to stock Friday afternoon. And spent today at the dealership and drove off in a 2007 Honda Civic coupe LX 5 speed. The commute to and from work was hurting gas mileage wise so this was the best option for me. My first step in getting a real offroad toy as well, hope to have a Bronco by the end of summer for weekend fun. Ill still stick around a little here and there though, I learned sooo much more than I ever could have thought to learn here and I hope to be able to pass on what I have learned to others.

Once again thanks a lot for everything!

I have to relocate the camera then Ill get pics up. For the 4x4 (Bronco) looking at a max of 5k. Preferably 95-96 with the OBD II (i think thats what the comp was called) in it.
Plus I would prefer to have the honda for trustworthy everyday driving since I beat up the truck pretty good offroad. This way if I have a trail rig and if I break it I dont have to worry about fixing it so I can get to work (and having a 4x4 would be nice as well...)

1997 wrangler, 4.0 i6, sahara (4x4 solid axels open), hard top and also a soft top. Oversize a/ts and tow hooks are the only mods, almost perfect condition and sadly my dad doesnt let it touch dirt. Its a neglected garage 4x4

Sorry to see a good RF member loose their truck to the gas prices.

I am almost willing to bet you regret it in 6 months.
