Not trying to offend anyone here but I don't understand it. Everyone wants to complain about the ozone and co2 levels and going green but I always see a ton of suvs' going down the road with only one person in them and I would venture to say that 50% have attitudes.

It seems that there are getting to be a little less of them out there probably because they can't afford the gas anymore and I also understand that everyone is entitled to theirs reasons that justify why.

Ok flame suit on and ready LOL

LMAO, I don't really care what other people drive either but a lot of the people are hypocrites when it comes to things like polluting the earth. I'm not against having gas guzzlers and actually I am all for it LOL

My Grand Cherokee is an SUV, but not the size of many of the other SUV's today. Many of them are honkin HUGE! My Cherokee is so easy to get into...no going down, nor lifting up to get in...just like sitting on a kitchen chair. I don't like the huge ones.

You are also a taller guy so I could see you driving a bigger suv because of needing the leg room. The ones I notice the most are the soccer moms.

it really doesnt bother me what people drive, from a safety stand point i would rather be in a huge suv or truck rather then a small car in which odds of walking away from an accident are slim!!! i got tboned about 2 weeks ago by someone in a van...my ol' girl is limpin...but i sure did mess that van up...lol just a few dents i can pop out.

I have a Ford F-350 crew cab W/8 ft bed. Don't get much bigger but I used it to pull a %th wheel. Sold 5th wheel so now truck don't get much exercise. You'd be surprised at how much will fit in my ole Subaru Outback lol , and alot easier to turn around when I see an old tractor.

Nice to see ya post Harv,
It is amazing how much you can fit in different cars. I brought my 5hp 3200psi pressure washer home in the trunk of my wife's old jetta tdi, granted I had to take it out of the box but sure enough she fit LOL

Was out and about on Monday and found an old guy with a MF12G . He made the steering wheel out of a footrest on a barstool. Looked almost like factory .He had a couple of decks that look real nice. one was a big deck,maybe a 60in??? and a smaller 42. Also a MF12 that was rust bust har transaxle. When I left I was driving along and saw 3 Cub Cadets and a JD or two and don't know what else .Did I say ROAD TRIP ??
