    every damn day! 271,000 miles and counting, i average 1500 miles a month with it, I may look into a luxury sedan for a comfortable daily driver non work related next year if things keep going the way they are. I was thinking either caddilac cts v or maserati quattroporte both about 50,000 cars lightly used, and have very nice features. I was also thinking about picking up a vw tdi golf or jetta to drive to do estimates in and to take some of the wear and tear off my f350, but thinking about it more I would be spending 5-6000 to "save" money on fuel. not sure how great of an idea it really is, especially with registering it, property taxes, insurance and maintenance on that vehicle too.

    Ron, your Rubi is coming together very nicely! Like the new Kevlars let us know when you test them out on dirt and rocks.

    Lots of trail rigs use them, they are being toted as all terrain, even though they are mud terrain. I was thumbing through a Jeep magazine and read 6 articles with builds of trail and daily driver rigs and they all had the same Good Year Kevlars.

    Wayalife aka Eddie is a dick, he's a communist at heart, on trails he will not allow any pics taken by "outsiders" of his Jeep and he loves the ban button on his forum. He gets paid heavily by the sponsors. All his friends are just hanging out with him so they don't end up getting banned and ostracized. Eddie is like that popular b*itch in high school with all her friends at the top of the pecking order, and if 1 friend disagrees with the head b*tch, she's gone.

    Test drove 2011 CTS-V auto (coupe and sedan) and hated them. Was driving a 2010 grand sport corvette at the time and the CTS-Vs feel like under powered fat pigs which is what they are compared to the GS Vette. Auto shifter is crap- seemed to take a day and a half to shift.

    Traded in the GS (had a baby...) for a 2012 VW Toureg TDI which I love so far.
