Thats it I'm Parkin Old Blue

Well thats it yall, fuel cost at 4.89 a gallon. My truck is gettin parked. I am buying a 91 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L inline six fuel injected 5 speed 4x4. It is in decent condition which means it runs and drives great but looks like crap. but for 500 bucks I can't complain. I figure the cherokee gets about the same per gallon as my truck. So everytime I fill up it will save me a buck per gallon. I figure I will get my money back in a couple months.

I am keepin Old Blue, it is paid for and well I can't get what it is really worth out of it. Plus I still need the truck.

Good luck man. If I didn't pull so much, I used to have a 91 Wrangler that was fun to drive, I would probably duplicate that.

It has a new clutch, new slave cylinder, new brakes, all it needs is a little tlc and tires. For the price I can't beat it.
