Don't know, don't care.

All I care about is that I took advantage of it and seemingly had a great experience.

What I've heard is that Vroom is willing to buy deep to gain market share for now. Interesting to see where it goes.
Oh, the usual "hemorrhage money now for a bright future" Tesla/Uber strategy? :popcorn:

Great for you and your :dill: :doe:
I thought they charged Zilldog for the derivery ?

You should see the next level fuckery that is currently happening from a financial perspective... Uber is tied in with WeWork and are renting office spaces from them. It's one money losing business tied into another that is losing money. The actual operating costs of these companies is just completely insane...

It will collapse... just a matter of time, and I am shocked it has taken this long.

The longer the wheelbase, the better it gets. My JT is super easy to drive long distances on the highway. There's certainly a degradation when going to the 4-door, and the 2-door is pretty rough for distance. I drove my dad's for a few hours on the highway, and it's certainly more jittery. For as great as it is overall, you can't overcome physics.
I found my JKU rode great - but I also did the Rubicon Recon shocks and springs.

Yea, 4-door wheelbase is where it's at.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

They did - $499. But I also had no doc fee.

NJ ended up taxing me less than they should have, too. :lol:

Carpet is clean AF, though.

And was only uninstalled and reinstalled once.

Great for dry climates!

You sure love our neighbors from the south. My woman refuses to help their economy, so off to Hawaii we go Thursday ...

Hope you had fun!

You waited until the night before you were supposed to go back to school? Nice timing. Let's hear it.

My best friend who moved to Austin stopped by and we decided to have a quiet night with his woman .... no we didn’t pass her around, although she does look like Mia Khalifa minus the fake titties ...

Went and got food... I literally told him let’s take it easy we all agreed !
4 pilsners
8 white claws at home
6 beers
1 bottle of Georgian wine
1/2 a bottle of georgian samagon that was 50%
1/4 bottle of vodka
1 bottle of sake that I got for my birthday
And then I had the brilliant idea to have 1/3 of a bottle of Pinot Grigio
We finished literally almost all the liquor minus the Pinot Grigio... I have no idea how i went to work the next day or how his lady friend is still with him

Alright, Linda. Maybe ride is the wrong word. Body control?
I mean, I said I still like the things. But to say they ride smooth as glass is just not the experience I've had between 2 of them now. Muhammad's last-gen Rav4 was a breath of fresh air after 2 weeks in the JL, much smoother ride, much better body control, much calmer experience all around, even though it did rattle a bit.

:wrong: :whocares: as I said, it's a special vehicle and it's hard not to like it.
