Leather and loaded '01 Durango R/T. Heated front seats, Room for up to 7 people, 4 wheel drive on demand, and a powerful 5.9 engine that runs great. NEW Tires (Toyo Open Country A/T II) siped for excellent snow traction. Bikes can be included with deposit, or you're welcome to use "kuat NV" rack to carry your own. Thule box available for locking ski/board storage (or Yakima Load Warrior basket for extra gear). Child seats optional.
Called Moonshine Guzzler because we've run successfully on various blends of 105 octane bioethanol (E85), although haven't installed a Permaculture.com kit for cold starts yet. Ask us about our high performance Optibikes to see how we roll without so much guzzling now!
This car was perfect for our recent trip to Tahoe. Accommodated our family of five plus snowboard/ski gear and extended family we were visiting. Jeb was great as far as communication and flexibility in arranging pick-up/drop-off. This is an older/high mileage vehicle, so drove like one, but not a problem for us, especially considering the price. Thanks Jeb!
Jeb is a great guy and his Durango is a beast of a car! This SUV was clean, comfortable, and reliable and it made our ski vacation so easy! We felt safe traveling up through the mountains and it didn't take as much gas as we expected.
Jeb made the pickup and return process so easy that we rented his electric car when we needed a vehicle later. We had a great experience and I will always rent from Jeb when in Reno!
Overall this car is what you're looking for in a ski trip car, its got space, versatility and roof rack. Jeb was great, he picked us up from the airport and dropped us off. It makes renting and travelling incredibly easier with a reliable, normal guy like Jeb to work with. The car gets about 13 mpg. It runs beautifully, like a steed out on the open range in Texas, and although we didn't try it the car would probably drive on water. Honestly though, the new snows are brand new as of Jan 2013 and they worked great (use 4WD of course). Some accessories don't work super well (reverse lights work if you switch into reverse twice, front window is a little slow on the uptake, lights are quite dim). But those tiny mishaps are easily overlooked when You realize We drove 2500 miles over our rental and the car always started and always got us from point A to point B without malfunction. It's got seat heaters too for those cold mornings.
Jeb is great! Response was fast; overall communication was perfect. His Dodge is an older vehicle, but it was clean, started and ran great and got us through 5 feet of fresh snow in Squaw Valley. Jeb met us at the airport; we dropped him off at his house. On return, we met Jeb at work and he dropped us at the hotel. Jeb went above and beyond the call of duty. It was a great experience for us and hopefully for him, too.
