    vs. my jeep.

    In the mail I just retrieved from the mailbox there was a flyer from the local car dealership. The dealership is owned by a friend of ours. I purchased my jeep from this guy, but it was his personal vehicle, not from the lot. He tried six times to buy it back from me, stating that I caught him in a weak moment.

    The 2010 Dodge Charger advertised in the flyer sure looks sweet. [​IMG] I'm thinking how nice it would be to have a vehicle that's comfortable for longer drives. Just checked the Kelly blue book value on my jeep and it's still worth more than they're asking for the charger. Even if I traded my jeep we'd still have DH's.


    Hmmmm, do I want to go into debt for something when we are completely debt free? [​IMG]

    No, you do not. But you DO want the car!

    Just think how much easier it is to haul your dogs with your Jeep, though.

    Quote:But we also own DH's jeep, two pickups (farm truck and a custom) and the motorcycle, besides DH's patrol car which he drives more than anything.

    I drive DH's jeep only when absolutely necessary - I don't like or feel comfortable with the higher lift kit it has, I can't drive the farm truck and he doesn't like anyone but him to drive the custom.

    I think I want this charger. Maybe I'm just overtired and weak right now.

    I've always wanted a charger, so I'd say go for it! You already have one jeep if you need it. It's worth a little more money to have something fun you enjoy driving imo.

    Well the solution here is obvious - sell DH's Jeep and get the charger AND keep your Jeep! [​IMG]

    Good idea! But then I'd have to consider what I want on my tombstone.
