That's a thorough response to my question Bigmac. I agree with all that you have said. And yes, you sure see lots of Jeeps pulling vans out there. It's funny you know, in the 4x4 world of Toyota and Nissan, Jeeps are crap. I can't believe the bagging that they get. Obviously not everyone is listening to them, otherwise you just wouldn't see the amounts of diesel Jeeps out there. Just look at the 4x4 and caravan and camping forums for instance.
Well I have had the CRD for 6 years now.I am in no hurry to sell it yet. It's still in close to mint condition and I still get that silly grin on my face whenever I drive it. That is some weekends and trips only.
