Looking for valid reasons and/or wild excuses to add a gq ute to the stable and also methods (morally questionable is ok with me) to convince the missus. We will be moving out rural soon so that is my jumping off point

So far I have:

1. There's no garbage collection there so need to take wheely bins to the dump.
2. to transport all your lovely plants/trees/mulch etc for your landscaped garden.
3. I just think they're cool
4. see number 3 above.

Its easy. Just use her car for all the jobs stated above and You'll have a troll in no time.
Yes, that's a plan worth working on, but #2 is worth pushing as over the next few years you will have a lot of work to do around the "property" and you can't fit all those tools, trees, stumps, plants, live cows, dead cows, live sheep, dead sheep, etc, etc, etc, in a wagon.

Do what I do and just get it. Then once its home its to late.
They get over it after a few days. Be warned going on experience them few days of hell can be a real test of love. But its worth it and I've done 4 or 5 times now.

come home with the gq and something shiny and expensive for her and you'll be forgiven before she even realizes what you did

Convince her it is her idea, hard one but doable, using her car will help make it her idea

Tell her when she is sitting on your face? When she asks wtf you're doing when you cum home with a patrol, you can say you told her at least once.

Don't tell the kids I said that. ;)

Put 12 bags of sheep poo in her car then tell her you were thinking of buying a ute.

She'll probably see it as bad news, or an excuse to get angry so your best friend here is the scale approach.

Start with something really bad:
You're living a double life with a 20 year old Russian model/porn star for example.
Just as she's about to maim/castrate/kill you move to step two.
Embellish the truth for the worse:
Say you were only kidding, and you just got a car... for $10k more than you actually spent.
Then you finally tell her the truth.
"Just kidding, I did get a car but for the low, low price of $XXX"
Then explain the benefits of not having to haul half a tonne of manure around in the back of her wagon.

Note: I offer no guarantees of success and I do not actually recommend trying this approach.

Tell her you need a $60k landcruiser ute.

Then after the apoplexy passes ( or once the swelling goes down and you regain normal vision ) show her a really cool GQ that you'd 'settle' for.

My first boss once told me everything for his race car costs twice as much as it should for this exact reason.
