Has anyone priced a mega cab and trailer lately? You can buy a house for less money.

I say buy what you need man, if life says you don't need a Jeep at the moment then listen.

Good luck with whatever your decision is.

Used dura max and a trailer under 20k.... Used 6.0 2500hd and trailer under 15k. Either would be a nice reliable set up.

Thanks for the input guys...though a truck and trailer would be nice priority #1 is a house and a garage. I was just day dreaming, I would however like 1 of every style jeep: yj, 4 door jk, 5.9 grand cherokee like Erik Millers, an XJ...

It was a little more than i wanted to spend. I picked mine up for $32K with 70,000 miles. You can find them in the 20Ks easily if you shop around.
