This "Jeep thing" is like dating a really really hot chick, who is crazy! Its alot of fun, you spend too much money, your up all night ending up sweaty & greasy from it, your friends are jealous, you get admission into some sort of weird club... but it gets mad at your for no reason, throws fits seemingly randomly, has unexplained issues which it somehow solves on its own only after you try a bunch of different things (and spend a bunch of money) to solve it... and yet you can't resist getting in it every chance you can.
we use a 1996 suburban K2500 4x4. its got the 7.4l 454 in it and a 14b out back. did the hypertech power programmer to free up some more power. get about 13mpg AT BEST empty on the highway. 8mpg is more average.
Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

Here is my overloaded Frontier moving all my tools and crap up to my parents house in NC from SC when I was about to leave for Japan. I no longer have this truck but when I didn't have all the crap loaded in the bed, backseat, inside the Jeep and on the trailer on top of the Jeep's weight it did pretty darn good. Of course I had trailer brakes which helped but this U-Haul trailer was a pig and it was a little tounge heavy in the picture. My next tow rig is going to be a used GMC diesel 4x4 2500HD or a 3500.
Just joined here. I am pulling with a 08 Ram with a 6.7L Cummins. Big upgrade from a Tahoe with a 5.3L gasser. I can't post a pic up here yet, but will when I can. Quad Cab long bed. I like it when it is pulling, you don't notice anything back there.
