im looking for a either a 4x4 or 2wd and id get a 3.0 for the reliability, but id also want the power of a 4.0. I found a 2000 2wd 3.0 auto that i have my eye on, but im still looking for any better deals out there. i guess im kinda stuck and am gonna have to chose one.

A lot of guys are gonna tell you to just get a 4.0 but a 3.0 is great too. Super reliable.

it was getting there but then i would have to pay around $5000 to continue and get my license, i put it on pause and will get it in about 5 years, aviation was mostly a hobby.

yup, really expensive!. i just love the idea of oing high and flying in general, its an expensive venture, but hopefully ill get there someday. and your right about the pay. ill probably just become an aviation mechanic so i could work with planes.

and between you are all so welcoming
