Question Gettin a obs powerstroker

ok so i have found 2 good trucks that i am very interested in. one comes with a plow, stacks, n a garuntee job w. the guy plowin in the winter. the other is pretty much stock plus guages, chip, n stacks. Both realy nice trucks and have been taken care of. My parents were all for me gettin the one w. the plow n for nect summer pullin a trailer for my dads mowin crew. now all of the sudden my dad said no n now neither of them will co-sign for a loan. i turned 18 in january and have absolutely no credit what-so-ever. not a phone, credit card or anything. my question is to everyone but mostly the yournger guys (about my age) how they paid for them. if anyone knows of a place to get a loan without a crazy intrest rate i would appreciate it. thanks a lot

I paid cash for mine at age 17 (im still 17). Well I paid for it all except for $900 which my dad added in. I had the $900 bucks paid back to him in 1 month.

BINGO and we do mean a lot of work i have my own lawncare business with about 25-30 accounts and on top of that i work on a farm in the evenings and i am planning on finding another job for the winter. i bought my first one from my dad(the one in my avatar) he bought it brand new and it was my baby but i totaled it and what insurance gave me for it pretty much bought my new truck.

There has been some VERY good advice given in this thread. Do you currently have a car? If so you could pick up a job delivering pizzas and make 1K a month in the evenings and pay cash for the truck. You might have to wait for a little while to save up the cash but it would be SOOO much better IMO. JJ
