Nice.

I was looking at a Honda Element the other night, which I think is quite possibly the ugliest vehicle ever built... but I thought to myself... If you just hacked off the top from behind the front seats, it could make one hell of a truck... Mini-Ridgeline if you will (with obvious beefing up needed)...

Anywho that truck kicks ass... makes me want a new one...

I love that truck, except for the fact that it's a Dodge.

I have wanted a truck like that for a long time. I don't need a truck all the time, but I need one just often enough. The mid-size trucks with 4 doors would be absolutely perfect. I just can't afford one yet.

Only 3 words WTF a Dodge?

Ofc I can't complain about them too much, a couple of years ago we had a big snow storm and I took my bro-in-laws Ram everywhere that day... He even had the ahem balls on the back they were dragging the snow... Didn't have one problem and was going down roads that hadn't been touched. 2 tire tracks and ball dragging line

That is a beautiful truck!!! Ever since I had gotten my first car I drove Dodge. My next new car will be a chevy tho. I love the Cobalt. Although the new Stratus is pretty spiffy!

The reason I chose Dodge is because it's the only truck in it's class that has a V8 and I got it for 25k

Besides Jon has a Dakota and I LOVE his truck. I actually like the body style on his more than mine, but I couldn't find one like his with low miles and all the options that I wanted.

I can afford them just the wife has different priorities. Why do I need to pay off CC's just so she can buy more stuff? and I can get a new house anytime... She has actually flat out told me she will divorce me if I buy a bike before cc's are paid off and we've bought a new house. Sorry in progress

is the roof falling off? I can understand paying off the CC's, but then tell her she can't use them... but I'd say CC's (for her) bike (for you) House (for her) in that order.
