Decided to give our Ford Edge to the mother-in-law and wanted something with a little more fuel economy (16 yr old daughter is getting the MINI vert, and this will be the wife's DD now). Picked this up yesterday. Got the EcoDiesel - hoping to get 600+ miles to the fill up at around 26MPG.







Honestly though, I just hope this thing is as reliable as the other Jeeps I've owned in the past. Don't let me down Detroit.

I looked around a little - but don't see that they have anything for this one yet.

I'd consider, depending on what it does.

EDIT: sure enough, I just found this. May need to look into it. http://www.bluesparkautomotive.com/d...28EcoDiesel%29

Thanks gents!

It's in North Garden (near Charlottesville) in VA. The place is called Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards -- and they have a wine bar/cafe that's open most days during the week. Fantastic place.

And yep, the reception and all the other drunken shenanigans took place inside the barn .

As for breaking even, that WAS the goal lol... But I need to put some parts up for sale haha.

Nice Jeep! I would love to have a current model Grand Cherokee.

so, all of this happened today HAHAHA !!!!

Felt Bicycles.....

also got a rack, but it's one of those ones that hooks up to a hitch...

I drove about 90 miles all over Houston today looking for a place that could install the ONLY 2" Uhaul Receiver that was in stock for my Challenger, but everyone was closed or "too busy"...

so we'll see about getting it done tomorrow...bikes are still at the shop for now....
