Body Damage is Cool
My Perersons 4 Wheel & Off Road came in the mail today and to my suprise my Kia was in it. Look on page 21 in readers rides. I did submit the picture but never expected to see it in print. It is in the (WHAT THE HECK!?) section which is fitting because thats the kind of looks it always gets. Kind a cool ha!

Sweet! I'll have to thumb through it in the grocery store! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Make sure you leave the mag open to that page on the dash when you're showing it for sale.

Need a Spot
I get that a lot with the Kia Sorento too. Body on frame design, limited slip, 4.6 gears, but they always feel the need to say something like "wow, I'm impressed".

Congrats on making the magazine!

I can't remember which magizine it was but every time they put a Sorento in the the 4 wheeler of the year tests it always suprised them on how high it placed when they added up the scores, it even beat out the Rubicon in the slow speed hill climb. I would have liked to try a Sorento build like I did with my Sportage but the top down Wheelin of the Wrangler won out. Keep wheelin your Sorento and keep the jaws dropping.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
We don't get the mag over here, but found this on their web site:
Dennis's Famous Kia

Unfortunately, I too have fallen to the dark side and bought a Jeep, and cannot afford to keep the Kia. I am desperately going to try and find her a good home. Off road not parking lot. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif" alt="" />
