Well, mother nature decided I needed to get a truck today.

We got our first "real" snow of the season here in Madison today. I had to wait until about 10 am until my driveway got plowed, and then when I tried driving my 135is on its summer tires, I got about a mile before deciding I shouldn't chance the rest of my 10 mile commute. It was bad.

So, all those trucks I found out of town be damned, I was going to try to get something decent here in town, today.

So, I picked this here '99 Grand Cherokee Limited V8 with 140k miles on it for $4200. No rust, good tires and brakes, couple minor problems but based on driving it around some unplowed parking lots, it's a huge improvement over my summer-tired 135is. Which now gets to be a winter garage queen.
