Hey man...congratulations and welcome!!! What did you trade in?
I traded my wife's conversion van. It was a 98 Chevy Hitop Mark III I bought new in 99. It only had 72,000 on it in all that time. It got used for a few trips and alot of short trips to gymnastics, soccer, etc. It was a sharp van without any of the tacky style you see on many conv. vans. Just not practical with the 2wd, poor mileage (yes even worse than an Armada) and bad road manners in the wind. It snows quite abit near us and if you combine a little wind with some snow you could be in for adventure. In the winter my wife would switch to my F350 CC and I'd use a company car.

Took Delivery!!!

Well I finally picked up the Armada. First in the morning car came in without Sat. radio...I rejected it. They got me another identical vehicle witht he sat. radio by the evening and I picked it up. Real nice truck, only put about 125 miles on it so far, but it is an impressive vehicle. Suposed to snow tomorrow so will try out its 4x4 system. Hopefully int he next few weeks I'll get the brake box in and I'll try it towing.

Congrats on you new Mada, we almost got 4x4, but being here in So Cal, there is really no need for it. We had a 4x4 Rodeo and never used the 4x4.

Thanks. 4x4 is needed in at least ONE of the family vehicles here in NYs Hudson Valley area. Even if you could get by without it, it KILLS your resale around these parts.

I live in sunny N. Cali, but we go to the mountains a lot and see muddy/snowy conditions. 4wd is seldom needed but when you would have been stuck in 2wd on that lonely dead end road in the mountains late on a Sunday night it is worth every penny to be on my way home to a hot meal and shower instead of digging and/or going for help. If I was a boater I would have it too after witnessing the problems some have had on the ramps. All my vehicles are 4wd, won't leave home without it.

I am a boater, and I have not needed a 4x4 yet. My current boat is a 26 footer with a dry weight of 4200lbs, fueled up, equipment and trailer, it comes in just under 6klbs, and when we tow it out of the water, there is people in the boat too. Got to love the Armada.
