Hi

So maybe something like this
1994 Ford F350 pick up truck crew cab dually
and
2002 vw jetta tdi
or
2002 VW Jetta TDI, Diesel, Silver, auto

instead of

2003 F250 Diesel Pickup King Ranch

?

Something I have thought about before...seeing as currently I only "commute" 8 blocks with my dakota (should be walking or biking anyway)...my wife commutes 50 miles daily and is currently driving a minivan getting 24mpg...

Going with option one above...
I still have a truck for dirt and wood and drywall and towing the Jeep...and can fit the family (wife and 2 kids) or friends when wheeling...wifey could drive the jetta to work most days and get 40+ mpg on her commute...keep the minivan (need room for wife, 2 kids, dog and too much luggage...and will be paid off by the end of the year) for our frequent trips to grandma and grandpa's which are 2.5 hours to one set...3.5 hours to the other...

And it's cheaper...until something in the VW breaks... I wonder how insurance would be...multi-car discount...could probably just get liability on the truck...

hmmm....

why yes, yes i am a moron
