    Thanks David. I daily drove it for a year after the engine swap, and I think I was getting around 16MPG. My Cobalt gets twice that and what I saved in gas made the payments on it... so basicly a car for free. LOL

    I've got a silly amount of cash into it, and I'd only get a fraction back if I were to sell it... so seeing as how I don't offroad anymore I just decided to use it as much as I could as a utility vehicle. It plows the driveway, hauls the trailer with whatever in it, and the winch is handy for logging and so on. I plan to use it to grade the trail and driveway once the trail's done. Not sure what that'll look like, but I'm sure TBN will be of help there.

    Sweet looking Jeep. It is set up very well for rock crawling. I have been working on a YJ jeep to nothing to that level.

    I found a used root rake for my dozer about 100 miles away from home. It was in a pile destined for scrap. All the way home I wondered if my FEL would be able to pick it up. It was right at the limit with the chains over the edge of the bucket but I wanted to keep the rake as far forward as I could so I could lay it down. After I got it stood up I coud just barely get it off the ground with the lift control but I could curl it up without any trouble.

    I just did the same thing (similar) My F150 was getting 16mpg and I bought a used 2012 Ford Focus and on my commute from H3LL I'm consistently getting well over twice that... Heck my average for the last 5000 miles is like 34.5 or more. (I got 40 round trip to OBX).

    The payment is much smaller than I was paying for gas...

    In fact the mileage (and AC) is so good, it has seriously cut into my Harley riding...

    That is a sweet Jeep... I'd love to have one like that.

    Be well,
