Well, thats a factor that plays in as well. Im going to use it a dd. Im also going for a mild show car/suv. Not a whole lot of exterior work. The car will be kitted and lowered but when winter hits it goes back to stock... The SUV would be ready to roll year round type deal.. Gas prices aren't too much of a worry for me..The SUV will prolly only be a 4.3 V6 which isnt too bad on gas...skeezix said:SUV's have lots of room for custom stereo and such but you can also do some pretty cool stuff with a car too. Are you looking to use this just as a show car or are you going to be driving it around a fair bit if so you may want t consider the outrageous gas prices.
