Re: Important

Why not sell the bike, the Jeep and patch up the truck enough to get a decent price, sell it all and have some money to put down on a good vehicle you dont start out upside down in and can get you to work reliably each day and have an affordable payment? Damn Sam, you just made me sound like an adult!!

Re: Important

Buy used. So much cheaper even having to fix wear items it’s a no brainer. Paying cash would be best but if that’s not possible your at least not taking the initial massive loss on new. The only thing worse would be leasing a vehicle.

Sell the bike and jeep put that money up to get rid of the truck which is a money pit and get something more reliable for a daily. Then as cash allows replace the toys.

Worked well for me. But I’m also debt free and only pay cash for toys

No payments stacks up money in a hurry for things that do break.

Whoa whoa whoa! You guys are talking non sense now. You just want me to sell off my toys! You must not know me to well. I will increase the debt before I down size.


I drove to the dealer with that f150 had a quick talk with a salesman since it was 4* outside. Asked him what his guess on my trade value was and informed him it had a
ďLight tickĒ he knew it was phasers and said 2000

At this point Iím starting to think, if Iím only going to get 2k for the truck and itís running, I may as well drive it until if completely fails and Likely stil get 2k

Moab prep, stage 2: The shop where l work, runs a 4 day work week(10 hrs. a day). When l started, l was on the weekend shift, 12 hrs 3 days. They asked. Me to switch back for 4 to 6 weeks
I said only if I can still work my normal shift
30 or 40 hrs of OT for next 4 to 6 weeks to fund the trip. YAY!

Good point. Good thing I got rid of mine!

Only jeep stuff I have left is that red 01 and it sits in the barn and our hunters drive it, oh, and a few jeep signs still hanging in the shop.

I have no room to talk of too many toys......but I don't owe on any of them except the camper. Which reminds me, I need to get a mailbox for the camper!
