Default Help! thinking of selling my jeep

Ok so right now its paid for. Insurance per year is $150 and registration is about that much. So its not a real financial strain to have. Problem... I'm in school and reall have no place to keep it and the last time i used it was around early january. I feel bad for it not getting used.. on the other hand it really has seen better days... its only a 4cyl and its a 98... i dunno i would get enough $$$ out of it to merit selling it..... any input?

I havent been on a trail ride in ages and i cant afford to go even if i knew of one...

i only have one more year of school left....maybe i could make some actual money and fix it up i dunno i just feel bad cause it never gets driven....

plus my mom said it makes me act too much like a guy and no self respecting guy would ever want to marry me if i owned that...

Just what you want, to attract a guy that isn't into things you are.

Keep the Jeep.

Pat it on the hood occasionally, talk about future runs and be thankful you don't have to pooperscoop the yard for something that big. :tonka:

I don't care what your mommy says:

GIRLS WITH JEEPS ARE THE HOTTEST GIRLS EVER.

I debated selling mine, but then I thought about how hard I'd be weeping if someone drove it away from me.

I'm a poor student too, but I found that, if you keep up in the GL4x4 marketplace, there are tons of nice people with things that they are willing to give you a deal on.

There is a way; you just have to want to make it happen.

...and a Jeep really does add a few points to the hottness scale...

Just keep it..
If its not a financial strain at all, why not?

You'll find time at some point to drive it...
Just drive it around this summer.

It'll be fine :miff:

I wish I still had mine.
I'm glad I have no frivalous debt now after selling it, but I still miss it.

He's right. I just sold my CJ7 Friday night and was almost in tears watching it drive away. The only reason I made it through the weekend is knowing that I'm picking up another CJ7 sitting on 35s tonight after work.

I would definately say keep it, it will stay together and after you graduate college and get a good paying job. it will do it's best to get you through the trails until you can upgrade.
