Default grab the wallet...........

Wife and I might be going out and looking at a new vehicle (for her) soon.........

Not sure why (all you fers gettin' new shit lol) - I've got the itch.........and my truck isn't going anywhere. She has been pretty adamant on her minivan for YEARS........and now........doesn't seem so gung ho on it......time to jump.

What she wants? 7 seater (we go with friends quite a bit to places, the 7 seats come in REALLY handy), DVD for the rear.....and it sits up higher than a car. Ok....so I asked her what she thought of a Durango. "Too big.........".

Hmm.......its smaller than the minivan (barely). Check.

Can it get a DVD? Yup. Check 2........

How's the mileage? who cares? Check........lost. LOL

You want a hemi? NO......screw you, I'm not buying one with a penistar. no balls. 8 spd hemi? sure.......

So, might be checking those out this week. Let the fun begin........D or a Grand Cherokee.........same thing, right?

Help me out here Morgan, I know dick about these things.

Durango with the Hemi and 8 speed all the way! The Grand Cherokees are pretty small compared to the Durango and only seat 5. I wish we would have gone with a Durango R/T but my wife thinks they look like a minivan...

A loaded Durango would have also been cheaper...

Soooo, there's my vote! Good luck!

Me and Em are looking at new SUV's for her. She has decided on a Durango.. We have test drove a ton in the last few weeks. She decided she did not want the Hemi...... I'm still trying to push her to go with a Hemi but she says the V6 is fine.

When we get back from the Honeymoon we'll probably pick her one up.. I'm pushing her to get the R/T but she likes the Crew.

Nope, 5 seater only. And they are proud of them. The sticker price on ours was almost $52k. I just built the same one and the price has jumped up another $1700! The Hemi alone jumped up $1000!

I just built a loaded AWD Durango R/T for less than $49k. If the refreshed Durango with the new tech and 8 speed would have been out when I was shopping around, I would have pushed much harder for that.

And I guess I'm just lucky, my wife wouldn't want a V6, she wants the Hemi!

the more I sit and about it, the more I want to say fuck it.

If I walk into a dealer............its all over. I'm afraid I'll end up with a new truck. LOL
