Friend Bart, who knows a thing or two about off-road vehicles (and who has a Jeep CJ from about 1948), says I should get a Toyota—not a Jeep—because they are better and more durable vehicles.
He is right about that. But the 4Runner is as ugly as a baboon's ass and—absent radical customization—has a visual soccer-mom quotient in the neighborhood of my stupid Buick Enclave.
Bart is a clever and perceptive person. I can't believe that he thinks I'm interested in buying the better car.
I'm interested in being a macho stud. Bring on the Bigfoot high-lift suspension.
Of course, I'll need a stepladder and a chiropractor to get in the cab....
