Ok guys, so lately I have been reading all about the jeeps (mainly unlimited) and am really suddenly wanting to get in a JKU rubicon. Something about they way they flex and solid axle up front I like.
Heres my situation:
I currently have a 09 Tacoma Offroad 4 door lifted and on 37's that I mainly just daily drive. I pay for it monthly. I like that I can haul stuff or pull my boat with it. Or if I ever shoot I deer I can just throw it in the bed.
I have a 94 Toyota Supra that I built to be capable of around 1000hp...fully built motor, auto to manual trans swap etc. Its in really good shape for a 94 and less than 3k on the newly built motor. I could easily sell it around 30k if I wanted to. It mainly stays kept in the garage collecting dust and hardly ever sees the road because they are sorta rare. It may see a sunny day every once in a blue moon.
Now, I could sell this car, but I would be sad due to the time I spent on this car and what I put into it. This would allow me to put a good chunk down on a new rubicon, or I could pay off the tacoma and keep it and finance the rubicon...or I could pay most of the rubicon and pay for both.
Or, I could sell the tacoma and no longer have a bed and just a fast car that sits in the garage that has sentimental value.
Luckily all of these vehicles have good resale values. What would you guys do?
I put the tacoma up for sale earlier on craigslist and the wife got mad cause I didnt really tell her, because she is wanting a new vehicle/SUV.
Just trying to weigh my options here.
at any rate, I could afford payments monthly around 600 or less depending on the route it goes...because thats about what I am paying right now total for just my play toys excluding the wives.
trade in the car and buy two jeeps? Get her a nicer newer one that she can drive and be content with and then buy yourself something with some age and a few miles that you can tear apart and turn it into whatever you want. It sounds like you have a picture in your head of what you want and the skills to match, get an 05-06 unlimited and go to town with it.
If it were me, the first time I wanted to tear into the Jeep that my wife used as a DD, she'd freak because she'd want to go out and wouldn't have anything to drive. Gotta have my own toys and her have her own vehicle.
