X2, get yourself out of debt and stay that way. Smart things to do right now.That sounds like a smart decision. Wait until the economy is doing better again.
Significantly cheaper parts going that route, it would be a night and day difference.If you want something to with and DD, why not a Tahoe/Yukon or Suburban/Yukon XL.
A guy in my club just got a 2001 Yukon XL 2500, fully loaded for like 5 grand. His wife DD's it and he tows with it when he wheels.
Gas mileage is similar between the Rover and the ones I mentioned. And parts are cheaper if you stay domestic.
