    Also have three kids nd have been in the same situation.

    Best decision we ever made was a 4x4 E350 van. Comfortable seating for all and loads of room. Tried other options and nothing even comes...

    Same here. Vans are great for family travel. Much more comfort than a pickup or SUV. My wife really appreciates a comfy captains chair, the fridge and the porta potti.

    Your interpretation of the term "gone broke" is quite a bit different than mine.

    When exactly did Ford go broke and based on what definition of the term?

    The new Cherokee looks like a great small expo vehicle.

    A problem with the OB is that there are very few off road oriented mods available. My guess is that upgrading the capability of the OB to...

    The CV has been a huge success for Subaru. So much so that it is becoming the standard tranny on most of their models.

    I have a 2010 OB, which was the CVs first model year. At first, I was a...

    There appears to be a relationship between 6.0psd problems and 1) how the engine has been maintained (cannot slack off), 2) the extent to which the motor has been modded to boost power and 3) driving...

    Yep, best to not think about MPG on the V10s. Most owners seem to get 10-12 in mixed driving unloaded and 8-10 if towing.

    FWIW, my 6.0 has been by far the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned....

    Grab an E350 with the gas V10. It will tow 10k without breaking a sweat and reliability is excellent.

    I will check this out.

    I have tried a few sat phone service providers over the past 8-10 years and Iridium has the best coverage by a wide margin.

    You are certainly right about the desire for what we cannot have. I fall into that mindset occasionally.

    The links you provide above make for interesting reading.

    Generally drive with OD off, unless pulling a grade.

    Short hop errands around town do indeed burn the fuel quickly.

    Similar specs on my 2005 and I get 13-14 pretty consistently, with mixed driving. This is my first Jeep and I was surprised at the poor MPG. But it isn't my DD and the Jeep sure is fun.

    Good thread.

    I camp with three kids and usually one dog. The thought of trying to pull that off in the Jeep makes me laugh. Yes, it can be done. But in the van we have plenty of room for gear,...
