Bought my 2013 JGC Overland new and have 55k miles on it thus far with no problems at all. Very comfortable highway ride. Mine has the hemi v8 though FYI. My mom drove a 2011 model to 75k with no problems. I think they've improved reliability over older models...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Louisiana's Public Higher Education Problem Solved - gorillaballin on 1/23/16 at 10:36 am
I agree with most of your post but these politicians don't have the balls to shut any down, esp the HBCUs. Edwards is a dem, remember? HBCUs won't go anywhere (but they should, starting with SUNO). Also, Southeastern has like 15,000 students so it's fairly viable from an income standpoint, I'd im...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I'm a millennial, bought a double uptown in 2012 that needed a huge renovation. The older couple who had lived there for 20+ years let it go to shite so it needed basically everything but I was up for it. They bought a house with a pool out in Harvey for what I paid for their dilapidated property, ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Thoughts on real estate as a profession - gorillaballin on 3/3/15 at 11:37 am
Commercial appraisal is in high demand if you want to work your arse off. You will get paid for working your arse off though. Get a finance degree and jump in. Average age practicing is like 57 now so demand will keep going up as older guys retire. It's not a career a lot of people think about when...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Bought my '13 JGC Overland new and have almost 32k on it. Zero problems thus far. It's my first American car (previously drove a Tundra to 125k) so I bought an extended warranty to 75k miles. If you want the Jeep but also want reassurance, buy the warranty. It bumped up my monthly note by like $...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
