Dakota now has a Class $Texas trailer hitch. What shall I tow with it?

Sew, what if I traded Festiva for a 2012-ish Jeep Liberty, a vehicle that I once said was the worst driving vehicle of any kind, ever, for all of history.

The liberty isn’t just one of the worst driving vehicles of the past decade or so.  It may be one of the worst cars flat out.

They are quite shitty to drive. But can also be made quite capable off road.

I was just working on one yesterday, and thinking to myself, "Hmmm, this is pretty easy to work on, and there is plenty of doge space...". Forget I said anything. These things are junk.

On the market at the same time? I mean sure, an '88 Sunfire is worse, but that's all I can think of.

Oh btw, Dakota is getting painted 50 shades of gray. I mean, I bought one color of gray paint, but I assume it will turn out schitty.

I changed my mind. Maybe a nice khaki color would be better.

Serious Question...
If I keep Fiesta and move up north, should I leave thr suspension stock, or install the Ford Performance Kit suspension (slightly lower and firmerer, basically like an ST)

You'd be better of lifting it, especially for winters.

Yeah, but maybe Dakota would be a winter beater. 2wd pickup is best for winter, right? I dunno, I live in South America.

Put Fiesta in bed of Dakota for xTra 2WD traction.

There are no drawbacks at all to this plan.

Excellent. It would be good to have a spare car on hand if Dakota breaks/gets stuck.
