    good job Unca.

    they'd be plenty safe if Meck and every redneck in my neighborhood weren't driving around in lifted 4000 lb trucks.

    True, but your going to get hurt in any vehicle if you get smacked with a 4000lb truck.

    It doesn't hurt that it's 1,000 down and payments of 145 $ a month. I can easily swing it and be driving a brand new car.

    I like it. I smile when I see one. Especially the other day when I saw a chihuahua in one. I felt like I was living in a mini world. ;)
