Hey guys, been a bit since iv been on...
Long story short. I love my truck, but with 160k
On it and a few things I know are going soon...
I'm looking at a 2012 blk on blk Hemi RT.

So I'm having a hard time....


Letting go of my 03 beast. (With a bad rear clutch and a wining
Trans) and getting a truck payment and a bad ***
RT....

Should I keep dumping $? And keep the 03?

Or get the 3yr peace of mind?

BTW truck is paid in full...


Help???

i really don't want the payment.... but i also would like the warranty...

since i have already paid 22k for this truck its logical to keep it and put the money into it...

but the new trucks are so grand.....

Good to see you around again! I've resigned to myself to the fact that a vehicle payment is kind of like taxes....you just learn to live with them.
Get a new truck and be happy about it....I am!

I'm a big fan of no car payment! Haven't had one in 'bout six or seven years, mostly 'cause we buy used more than new. There is a point at which ya gotta let go, I guess.

One of my bosses did that with a Mercury Villager his wife took every opportunity to beat the sh!t out of. Anyway, it stranded them out in the boonies, so they waited one too many repairs to trade it.

Everyone has their own ideas, I don't do payments and I have my 03 the way I want it and no one else needs to drive it so I mod it the way i want. Now if my wife needed to drive it and it was needed to make extended trips i wouldn't have modded it and would proably trade up to a newer truck. Good luck..
