I see you get the same two stress dimples I get on my hood when temps change. 
Those dimples don't go away regardless of how cold or hot it is...   :'(

"This is about as deep as I let it get on and around the Eagle this winter"
I see why.  Much deeper and you would need a metal detector to find it.
At least a metal detector would find it.  I'm not sure one would find some of these new plastic vehicles.
I'm right 98% of the time, and I don't care about the other 3%.

LOL!   8)

That 4.0 started right up, no problem on a few mornings when it was minus teens.  Might just keep it.   ;D

We had snow the last 2 days.  Flurries, fat flakes and wind but no more than an inch or two of accumulation at one time.  Some frosted roads up in Mesa Verde this morning.  I got to run the new tires in 4wd.  Much better!  WOOT!

Your wagon looks to be the same color as Mav's newest acquisition!

Some places couldn't handle the snow load


Yes, that's the hood of my Spirit that is slowing hatching into an Eagle. It made it to my cabin and back through snow that stopped my Comanche from gaining access!

No matter how bad YOU think it is ... it could always be WORSE!!
