All right, waiting for some ebay auctions to end and have some free time......
 
Need some suggestions for a new vehicle.  First off, Household Six drives my 09 Suburban (awesome vehicle, everyone should have one).  I am reduced to my trusty 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited for winter/hunting vehicle and an 05 Mustang GT in mint condition with some nice eye candy and low low miles.
 
I live in the snow belt, and want to maintain a vehicle that is rugged, AWD, and can hunt.  I also like to go fast.....
 
So that leaves me looking for a fast vehicle thats fun to drive with off road capability.  This would be something I sell both cars to get, so looking around 20-25k.  Thoughts on a fun new toy? 
 
Vehicles I have owned....first to last...85 Pontiac Funbird, 86 Toyota Supra, 97 Jeep Wrangler, 2000 Hyundai Elantra (wtf was i thinking, but was actually a good car), 2002 Nissan Xterra (pos), 2004 Dodge Ram Quad Cab Hemi (hmmm), 2006 Chrysler 300 Limited, 2006 Jeep Wrangler, 2005 Suburban, 2007 Suburban, 2006 Subaru WRX, 2007 Subaru WRX, 2007 Hummer H3 (times two, crappy vehicles, first one lemon lawed), 2009 Suburban, 1998 Land Rover Disco, 2002 Disco, 1999 Jeep GC, 1998 Chevy Blazer, 1999 Jeep GC, 2005 Ford Mustang GT, and a couple of motorycles in there somewhere.....wow thats impressive being only 32
 
What should I buy next?

SRT8 Jeep is an interesting option I hadnt thought about, but appear to be quite pricey.  Ive had a WRX before, and even though the new ones have 40 more hp, not sure I want to go from Mustang to Subaru......pure muscle to ...well....too young

Save your money, buy a few guns and you'll be better off in the end.

 
I promise.

Now that does sound like some sound advice.....
 
Been thinking I like having 2 vehicles, but my 3 stall garage is too darn full, and I live in town.  Would have to buy another safe before more guns though.......
 
Ok, so since you started new gun,.....Savage 10FCP 308 or Remmy 700...

I like Remington 700's better than Savage guns.  But, if I had my choice I'd go with a Tikka.  I've had really good luck with them and you'll have more money left over for optics.
