You know the answer to that one....I mean were talking about an XJ here!
The second most successful vehicle made in history, one which has not been replaced by anything to date (though new Rubicon Unlimited 4door is damn sweet).
Ski gear is mostly comprised of clothing, the same reason I dont wear a suit to work that has holes in it and is duct taped I would not do it on the mountain..unless I was really strapped, even then I would stitch and patch it rather than tape it!
As far as skis, they are not like the XJ which is as good as a vehicle of that type has gotten, skis keep getting better and the Jeep can be repaired to better than new, the skis with the cracks and screws is not better than one that is intact nor can it ever be made to be.
BTW for those who are wondering what the hell me and Marta are talking about: XJ is the factory designation for the Jeep Cherokee produced from 1984-2001, the vehicle that began the SUV market and is considered to be the most successful car ever produced next to the VW beetle.
