Might be it for me

With our little girl almost here and financials getting tighter I'm looking into getting rid of the Hemi for something better on gas and with a better rear seat. We recently discovered the rear facing infant seat won't fit in the back without having the passenger seat virtually against the dash. That just isn't going to work for us. Unfortunately we owe $6000 more than the crooked dealers here offer us in trade so we're stuck as to what to do now. Need a second vehicle but can't afford another payment either.

Anyway sorry about the rant, just had to vent a little. I plan on sticking around here, if y'all allow, as I've enjoyed my time here with you fine people.

We won't boot you times get tough even if you loose the hemi I'm sure one will be back soon enough. Once a hemi truck owner always a hemi truck owner! This forum is more family to most of us. So family comes first with or without the truck. We had my 2500 only at one time and yes it is tight fit for
Sure we made a new base for a temp to make the center of the seat in the rear big enough to hold the car seat base and just put seat in center rear. Once the car seat turns around everything is back to normal of you can stick it out for a yr and a few months it will get better I promise.

I'd like to know more about how you made the center seat work Keith. That'd be great. Still need to figure out a way to get a second vehicle for when I'm at work. If anyone would like to buy our house that'd be a blessing lol this mortgage payment is crippling our single income. I did it to myself though, should've never bought it in the first place. Anyone wanna move to South Carolina?

We made an extension of you will with a piece of 3/4ply and 4x4 legs then secured the base to the seat sitting on top of that.

Hang in there Ryan. We've all been there at one time or another. We've also had folks sell/trade their truck in and lost money for something that ended up costing them as much as the hemi. Do what you can to not take a $6000 hit on a trade. That kind of loss hurts us all. Try to find a little ricer for the second car. Like I said we've all been there. Chin up, nose to the grind stone and you'll get back on your feet.
Once a member, always a member. It's always been that way around here. If you do trade your truck...you'll still be part of the family and you'll get another one some day.

Thanks Doug. I've been trying to find a way to get a little ricer. But then I'd have a higher insurance bill and more taxes lol it never ends. Told my wife I'm just gonna take the Snapper to work lol

It's really crossed my mind to get a bigger 4dr car with a 4cyl 5 spd option for a dd. Something like an older Camry, 6, Altima, L series or fusion etc. they seem fairly proved from what I've seen 3k-5k

Exactly what i've been looking at Mario. Insufficient funds is my problem. Thought you had the Ranger for a dd?

That's more of a donor vehicle from my old man. He has a company vehicle an rarely used it. The ram has 97,2xx miles on it so it being down this long is nice in the sense I've kept a lot of miles off it. I may have to wait to tell him bout the truck being fixed once it is lol
