At how many miles would you trade the diesel truck?

I have a 2012 Silverado 3500HD SRW with 75,000 miles on truck, would you trade before the warranty runs out? I would like a dually but I have to convince DW when is a good time to trade. 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

Warranty.... ?

I think the 'warranty' went out on my truck about.... 12 or so years ago....
190,000 on the clock and looking to put 400,000 more on it.

Do you know how to work on your truck or do you have someone else do everything for you?

Yes, go ahead and 'trade' it in for a new dually. Someone will get a nice truck and you may get a dually that may not be used to its' full potential.

I like my truck... a lot. and have not made a truck payment in over 10 years. Yes, I have put new fender and a paint job on it and a few odds and ends, but nothing close to 10 years of payments.

Now, with all of the jabs out of the way.

1) Do you LIKE your truck? Does it do what you need it to do, all of the time.

If 'yes'...keep it. If 'no', then get rid of it.

3 Years or 36,000 miles which ever come first.
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.

unless you really have new truck fever, bank those payments. You'll have money set aside for what repairs might come up, but mostly it will pile up to be a big down payment later on.

I trade every 2 years or so ~~ sometimes less never more. Current 2016 F250 6.7 is almost 7 months old and 17,000. No later than the arrival of the 2018 models but could be next month if on hits my liking.

AMEN Our 2004 F-250 SD is paid for and every month without a payment is that much more to spend on living. Even though it is a 6.0 L D, with legions of possible issues, we have had a great 108,000 miles and expect another 92,000 before we even think about a new TRUCK PAYMENT. We watch the oil changes and stay up on all routine maintenance. I carry a code reader so when ever we get a code we can consult our mechanic first before going further or consulting anyone while out of town. YEAH FOR NO PAYMENT. Besides the devil you know is safer than the devil you don't.

Part of the reason we like our diesel is the engine longevity. Our truck is almost 10 years old and is just now broke in at 130k. Sure, we've had to do minor repairs like hoses and belts. But much better than new truck payments!!! And we still get offers from guys at truck stops to buy it from us. But I'm not ready to mess with delete kits, DEF, or new truck pmts

We will probably keep it until 300k or the truck falls apart around the engine
