If you are like me and live in a city where gridlock has replaced most new-age religions as your state of being, even ridiculous gas prices can make you yearn for an SUV—you may not be moving, but at least you’re not stuck staring at the dirty back windshield of the Altima in front of you. One entrepreneurial Craigslist user is hoping to capitalize on exactly this, by offering up his 2011 Jeep Cherokee. The cost? A week with your wife.

As Jalopnik first reported, a Houston man with a loose grip on the English language offers a unique proposition:

I have a 4wd Jeep Cherokee. Its is dully loaded and has a which attached to front ranch hand bumper and grill gaurd. It is on a 4 in suspension lift and a 6 inch body lift has 35 mud grip tires(1200) witch has only been on it for two months. The truck only has 48,000 miles on it. i am looking to trade it but I looking for certain things only. I don’t need it but its paid for so O don’t have to sell it. Now here is what I am looking for. A lady( preferable married to how wants the jeep) she mist be 18 to 50 and fit. I give you the jeep and you leave your wife with me for a week. When you come pick her up she have the signed title to the jeep. So if interested send me several photo of the wife and I get right back to you. The photo need to be nude after all she will be for a week.

Given the request for a nude photo, your wife will ostensibly be providing emotional support and tender love and care, perhaps just in an uncomfortably warm climate.

As Jalopnik points out, the cost of a 2011 Jeep Cherokee is around $20,000. The original poster doesn’t specify whether you get to keep the car permanently, or just for the week as collateral to reclaim your spouse, so depending on how much you dislike your wife, this might be a very fair trade.
