Getting the Wheeling Fever
Psh, at least the car can actually move. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" /> Besides, you didn't even specify what KIND OF CAR. Do that next time, and I might not give you an undesirable answer.

It even has a body-on-frame chassis?

what does she drive???do you need more seats or just more room???


She has a '97 sportage.
Don't need more room, but not smaller. 5 seats will do. Got the grandkids to lug about now.

It would be nice to stay with a KIA. Does it have a full body chasis?

There are a lot of Sorentos on the road around here, and I have checked a few out, even crawling under and looking at them. They look like really nice rigs, they look rugged and well-made. I just wish there were lifts and lockers for them. I would definitely switch to a Sorrento some time in the future if I could get lifts and lockers for them.

Hmm let's see that's about 1.3 inches. "It doesn't worth it".

If you could get at least 4" of suspension lift and lockers (you left that outta your quote) then we would be in business! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/drunk.gif" alt="" />

To be honest, the rig I secretly want is one of the new style FJ cruisers, I don't know why but those things really appeal to me... I hear the mileage is pretty bad on them though and they aren't cheap.

Maybe when I'm rich, just for old time's sake I'll get a Sorento and do the works on it, solid axles, lockers, roll cage, etc. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> That would be funny, nobody has anything like that i bet. Then again, most people would think the same about the Sportage and there you have Dave's, as well as Rokia...
