Maybe you more mature gents can attest to 4 doors being WAY easier when you have kids. Thats what I learned this weekend.

IF...I had known 3 years ago what I know now...

I would have got the supercrew instead of the supercab flareside...

I would have got 4wd instead of 2wd...

I would have got a part time job and paid it off sooner ...

so now I could get a fuel effecient car and keep the truck...

oh heck...hindsight is 20/20

Much Easier! Our family went from a BMW 325I 2 door... To the 4 door tacoma truck,
What a Differance!

Nice Family Truck!

wait till the kids are gone than it is just you and the wife and a mid life crisis and a 2 door sports car. I learned a long time ago to not say never.

Nice,

Four doors work. I just bought last month a 05 escape XLT with the Hot DOHCV6 and
4WD to replace an 98 Monte.. Beats driving the big crew at 8 Miles per Gallon. Prestige and street credit hurts, but mini vans are the Shnizz for familys...

Hey, nothing wrong with a 2002 Explorer. I have same year Explorer Sport (no kids) and have never had an ounce of trouble with it. Made it back and forth from MN to AZ twice, loaded with 2 adults, 2 dogs and tons of stuff. Plan to do it again this winter.

Hey Andrew,

Just saw your next 2 door flying low down baseline Rd in Tempe!

it wasn't a 'new' new Gt350, but it wasnt more than a couple years old!

Ive always liked the excape, but im cautious that it might be too small. there not much smaller than exterras so they might not be so bad
