    I know how that goes.

    But depending on how the finances really are, I say just do it and deal with the fallout if its wort it. My wife is still pissed over the MJ and the money I spend on it "Because you already have an expensive Jeep that we have dumped money into, and you are not finished with that one yet.'

    Silence and no sex for about 2 weeks - but that was months ago LOL.

    She is slowly warming to it however. The MJ gets way better mileage than the LJ and the fuel bill has gone down. Her Excursion broke down and we had 2 other vehicles so she drove the LJ to work and hauled the kids around in it and I drove the MJ to work.

    Finally - the willys is a truck. A pickup is a great thing to have around. The MJ moved 90 percent of our stuff to the new house. The MJ hauled 8 loads of construction debris and yard waste to the dump that the contractor had left in the back yard, and I used the MJ to haul a bunch of crap for one of her friends.

    I also believe that at times it is better to ask for forgiveness than permsission, but even I know when it just wont' work. Right now and until our lawsuit is finished, I can wait.

    Well there you go.......

    Like I said. Depending on how the finances really are. The MJ diddnt make the kids go hungry.

    Im sure the time will come for you. When it does, just drag it home.
