OT/2 - help talk me back from the edge
My wife's been asking me to sell my pickup since our daughter was born, so I can have something with a back seat. She's not comfy with the idea of driving my daughter in my CJ5 this winter - neither am I, for that matter - so I'm receptive to the idea.
Among the many back-seat-equipped Ram replacements I've been looking at over the last couple weeks, I found an extremely nice '75 Bronco, recently frame-offed, set up with all the offroading bells n' whistles - full cage, discs, 35" Ground Hawgs, etc. To top it all off, the thing runs without a hitch, no leaks, fresh rebuild of both the motor and tranny.
After joking with my wife that I needed to get it, I wasn't met with the revulsion I'd expected. She liked it. Her recommendation: I could sell my Ram AND my CJ, and use the leftover money to get that winch and other stuff I've always wanted... then the whole family could load up in this new-old Bronco and wheel about the countryside.
Nice idea, but.... sell the CJ?
Or, wheel with the family, air lockers, winch, even room for the pooches...
Right now I don't know what to do. The EB even has the soft top and folding windshield. It just doesn't seem like there's a clear answer.
I come to humbly request words of advice, encouragement, or outright scorn if that's all you got to offer [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
