Let Me Know

Capt. John,
Let me know when you are going to get rid of your truck. I'd love to talk to you about it. I currently have a 2002 F250 7.3 w/ 53,000 on it! Absolutely love it. Only issue in 14 years was an axle seal.

DW says keep what I have, a month with no payment looks better than a new truck. Would y'all trade or put more miles on truck

That's really not many miles. I had a 1998.5 3500 Ram DRW drove it till 2014. It had over 200k was still pulling strong. Had a wreck Insurance totaled it so had to buy new 2014 Ram 3500 DRW will drive it till it stops. I had no major problems with my 98.5 I LOVE MY NEW RAM!

Going to print your post. She just had her 3rd oil change at 16,600. The factory tailgate is in the box the aluminum 5er gate arrived in. Will let you know....

Another advantage of an older vehicle is ready availability of used parts. When the DW ignored the check engine light, the temperature gauge, and the engine knocking I was faced with an engine replacement. Good used one for under $2K and a long weekend of work, and she's back on the road again.

I bought mine with 164k on it, if everything else holds together, I will rebuild it when it hits 500k!

I am bad on keeping vehicles.
I am on my 62 vehicle not including bikes,boats rvs etc. I get bored and move on .
My wife is understanding
But I agree 75k on a diesel is baby miles.I bought my dually with that and I am satisfied for now

I agree with the no payments...when you have to pay them. Thanks to the FRF I got the itch a while back. I paid mine off 4-5 years ago. It has about 160k on it and runs and looks ok. So here I am. I am scared of the new ones anyway. I figure it will wreck out before I wear it out.

I finance for 36 months and my business is nice enough to make the payments for me. Plus I can write a lot off as a business expense. Current one June 2015 next one will be 2018 model year.
What does this have to do with the OPs question or are just bragg'n

My 2002 Excursion with a 7.3 liter diesel turned 300k last month and I plan to keep it for years - till someone totals it or it or my needs change. I love having no payment.
