Right now as I speak, Jesse is putting new brakes and shocks on the maroon striped Dodge Ram Van that we bought to pull a trailer home to Iowa. It is only a 7 passenger (can stretch to 8 with the roomy back seat) but will fit us all much better than the tiny Plymouth Voyager we've been driving for the past 9 months...although it has worked and gotten great gas mileage. I cringe to think of the gas I used to pour into the Excursion, although I loved that beast. I loved the room that the Sprinter gave us, but I hated the tallness, it was goodbye to drive-thrus for awhile. The Ram is rough...it has seen better days, but I pray it will get us where we need to go.
