An Alabama Nissan dealer named Nissan of Gadsen is responsible for the vehicle’s listing. According to the dealer, McGraw and Hill traded in the vehicle for a new car for their daughter.
In April 2012, McGraw turned to eBay to sell his metallic black 2006 Dodge Charger SRT-8. McGraw acquired the muscle car in 2006 and later had its engine tweaked to increase its output to 652 horsepower. The “Live Like You Were Dying” singer also added custom wheels and flames to the vehicle’s exterior. McGraw even autographed the vehicle prior to putting it on eBay. McGraw did not disclose the reason for unloading the vehicle.
Despite selling numerous vehicles over the years, McGraw has refused to let go of his classic 1978 Jeep Wrangler CJ, which he received as birthday gift from Hill. Not your average Jeep, the couple shares a deep bond with the vehicle. In fact, the duo borrowed the SUV to go out on a date while touring in 1996. Incredibly, Hill managed to track down the vehicle nearly a decade later and give to McGraw as a birthday gift.
Interestingly enough, Jeep served as the sponsor for McGraw and Hill’s 2007 Soul2Soul tour. The Jeep-promoted tour featured a limited edition “Soul2Soul” 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, as well as the couple's original “Date Jeep,” which traveled with the tour.
