    I am retired, 69 y/o, and live in Roseville (Sacramento), CA. We (my late wife & I) originally bought our '01 (job 2) SportTrac because we needed more room for hauling grandkids (then, 2 girls ages now 18 & 16 plus a boy 13 & another girl 11 yr.) and misc. stuff. My dog, Sydney, a Border Collie mix has made her transition.
