    If I remember right the DD was somewhere around $16-17K, but it keeps going up all the time. Seems like it is never happy unless I am spending money on it.

          I don't even want to think about it. Even though I get a discount through here and sponsorship, I do have to buy parts from time to time...wow like I said, I don't even want to think about it.

              Difficult Calculations...

              Dang… it’s a lot. But I got to thinkin’ this weekend when Gnarly and I hit the beach in N.C. about what a Jeep is ‘worth’. I immediately bogged Myrtle up to her arse cheeks on the way up a hill because I was in second when I should have been in first. It became apparent that Myrtle wasn’t going anywhere else unless we got out to see why. I was standing there surveying my sixty-eight thousand dollar Jeep that'll blue book maybe two-thousand on a good day. I was also watching the tide come in. I said, ‘I shoulda bought M/Ts instead of A/Ts and I danged sure should have aired the A/Ts down. I thought about that lift kit I haven’t installed yet. Myrtle and her fifty-two thousand dollars worth of other parts were about to be drowned in salt water. I shoveled a little sand and Gnarly got behind the wheel and backed her right out of the hole. (I couldn’t talk Gnarly into shoveling.) We went on to have a blast. On the way out Gnarly got to showing off in the sand and blew out his water pump. Advance got yet more Jeep money from Gnarly’s wallet. We cut and mashed fingers Saturday night and Sunday morning at the campsite. We drank bloody marys, cursed mosquitoes, stubborn ’77 CJ bolts, and agreed that we hadn’t had so much fun in forever. Really guys, I haven’t added all those receipts up yet and I may never do so. But when we add up the total we should then consider the calculation that none of us can do… subtracting said total from priceless. The 'crazy Jeepers' will come out on top with that one every time.

                I spent 5100 for the jeep and probably have that much in it in parts, mostly repairing engine problems. rebuilt the head and have a spare one in my shop.

                    Bought mine used in the spring of 2003 20K miles for $14,500. Then said to the salesman "Oh, by the way I want to trade that Boneville in on it." HEHEHEHE, he didnt know I was tradiing in a car...LOL He gave me $4500 for the Bonne that the air cond didnt work. Always good to do a trade when its cold out for the air cond test...hehehehe. Added about another $1200 to it. Not bad I think.

                    Then again some of you could buy the next seat on the space flight with Russia with the money you have spent...

                      I don't trust Russian engineering... if it was any good, they'd have built a Jeep!
