Naw...I bought a Jeep!

The two primary reasons I didn't like the Dakota are not a problem on  
the Jeep.
1.) no ball joints!  The JEep Wrangler is one of the LAST solid axle  
trucks on the market, unless you want to spend a fortune for a 3/4 ton  
fullsize pickup.

2.) electronic controlled automatic transmission.  This Jeep is  
6-speed manual.  Yayy!  my left foot is no longer bored!
(of course, it also means the missus can't drive it yet)

I've also had good luck with "Jeep" products starting back with my  
parent's 1980 AMC Eagle, my own 1982 AMC Eagle, and my 1989 Jeep  
Commanche Pickup.
My father has also had good luck with both Jeep Wranglers he's had  
(his latest is an '02).
