Well, it finally happened that I had to bid goodbye to my much beloved CR-V (details in the built thread "1999 Honda CR-V 'Ganbaru'"). It doesn't matter what you drive, though, and adventure is necessary, so here's the new ride:
Dakota.jpg
2006 Dodge Dakota 4wd. 4.7L V8 engine, IFS with a solid rear axle, 5.5ft bed. Even came with a cheapo roll up tonneau cover. First thing is I plan to put a new set of tires on it in a slightly bigger size, probably 265/75r16, as I don't have the money right now to be going bigger and adding a lift kit, etc.

My family has a long tradition with Mopar stuff going all the way back to my parents much beloved 1985 New Yorker, and including my also very much beloved 2006 Dodge Charger, so it's kinda neat to have another Dodge in the driveway.

New to the site, well trolling for a few weeks but decided to get onboard.
Do allot of boating and paddling and just recently got a "over landing" rig for the first time in several years. Got a low mile '01 jeep XJ ripe for some lift and outfitting. Love the land cruiser rig so well represented on this site but would love hear what others are working and playing with....
You really can’t go wrong with a Jeep……as long as it’s a tow hook model (some will get this). As far as the XJ is concerned, plenty of aftermarket support out there. And parts are readily available. Just keep clean oil in it. The 4.0 has had some low oil pressure issues so good clean oil helps.

I have been running a Ram 2500 for over 5 years now. Had a house full of kids so needed to make one truck do everything. Not the case anymore, so I am currently building my forever rig, a 65 International Travelall Delivery.
