I want to try one of those “cooling” Purple mattresses. I think they’re in some stores now, so I can go lay on one and make sure it’s firm enough for me.

It's been a long time since they've come up :lolol:

I have actually :troywax: four figures on one in the past six months so I can finally play with the big boys.
Featured brand?
Casper Hybrid Cali King. :troywax:

I want an americano now. :sad: fucking COVID.
I've been enjoying my coffees at home, both hot and :fancy: cold brew and haven't missed this too much. I think what I look forward to most is just a beer at a dive bar with some friends.
Yeah I hear that. I'm so fucking sick of washing dishes. I'd love to just go pound a few beers at a bar, get a burger and some fries, and just hang out.

I can't make espresso drinks at home. Pour over coffee yeah, and it's generally better than what I used to get at coffee shops. I just like walking to a coffee shop with the dog, the sounds and smells, picking out a pastry, getting a coffee, and then walking to a park to enjoy some peace and quiet and nature before the day starts.

I have a beautyrest or some shit. I can't fucking wait to throw that turd out. Bought it like 4 years ago. It has a dip in the center. I weigh 160. The lady is a lot less than that. There's no reason it should have a dip.

It will get the boot when we are able to move back into the master bedroom and refurnish it.

Drive a bunch of :jeep: today. We are pretty much dialed in on a new four door soft top in Bikini. Looking at the Oscar Mike or Sport with some non poverty features.

Trying to make a :dill: on this: https://www.lakenormanchrysler.com/new/ ... cec78c.htm

They are offering $37.6k /$40k OTD. Seems pretty good to me, any thoughts? The Beemah is the issue as selling it before :troywax: would be ideal, they offered $12k which is meh.

If it’s a premium top, it’s not bad, but I’d truly go hardtop with the freedom panels if I lived anywhere but the beach/California.

Regardless, not my decision. Everyone should own a :jeep: once in their life. Hard top, soft top, 2-door, 4-door, :aintcare:

I think there is another $1k haggle room floating around. Most non rubicons have $6k off right now. Might be regional tho?

Id also upsell myself on the alpine stereo. Its SOOOO much better. And I'd snag the LED light package. But thats just me. The north package seems like a lot more creature comforts.

:dat:

snow and rain is ultra meh. The road noise is also very present. Id love a 2dr soft top as a toy 3rd car, but not a daily. x2 on a basic black, non color matched top. You will scratch them doing jeep things.

:iono: we both were all :fuckyeah: on the soft top. I think the hard tops are meh as you can’t really take the top off without a lot of time and a huge storage space. We go on trips to the mountains and beach all the time and there’s no way we could take the hard top off ever. Even locally it would have to sit in the carport and leave the C5 outside... meh. So basically it would never come off, and that’s the real appeal of the car to me. Being totally honest... we’re not going off-roading any time soon. It’s just a fun car.

We did test drive a hard and soft top on the highway, I was kind of amazed at the refinement level of both, it’s really :notbad:

I am different than many here though, just don’t really care about luxury/tech features like most. Hell I bought a BMW with no features and have always found it a little boring because it’s too refined.

I was concerned :tits: would :nope: on the :jeep: but she loved it and the JL really does drive significantly better than any preceding Wrangler.

We’re just not down with a $45k car, too :scrooge:

Good feedback on pricing though... kinda curious if they’ll call us today. $39k OTD would be cool.

It’s :mindblown: because I think this is the goat car ever her and I have both loved and will actually both want to drive. Sure, I’d want a manual two door for just me, but normally we’re polar opposite with cars we like.

Time isn’t much of an issue with the hardtop, but storage space is problematic. It’s also hard to do with one person if you need to throw it back in real quick for an unexpected rain session and don’t have a tarp or trail cover to throw over instead.

With two people you can easily have the hardtop top off in 5 minutes.

So we did a :dill:

$5k off MSRP on the :jeep: , worked out to $39,993 OTD finances at 3.4 for 60.

149k mile Fusion sold for $4500. Beemah actively listed, showed it to a legit guy yesterday. He is waiting on his car to sell so we’ll see.

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.
