Post help me decide

k so i have a small dilema... i need a new tranny and cant seem to find the cash to get it.. had some saved up but bent my driveshaft lol (pic of this is in my garage) so that took some of the cash out of that funds... so my question for you guys are: do i sell my jeep to fix my tranny? keep the jeep and slowly save for the tranny? or sell my truck and buy a slightly used or new f-350 and not tell them that it needs a new tranny when i trade it in lol... i only have 2.5yrs left to pay off my truck and it only has 75k miles on it... let me know what you guys think im having a hard time choosing...

ps i just got a letter in the mail from galpin for offering me 0% financing and a total of 7k back on there remaining new 06 models

-Raul

man that thing is sooo much fun.... still needs a lot of work but once i get new axles with lockers and at least 4.56 gears its gonna be unstoppable....my other plan was if i have to sell the jeep to fix my truck as soon as my truck is paid off i was gonna buy a new rubicon the 4 door one and start spending all my funds on that lol....still up in the air....

Do you have Full Coverage Insurance. I ask this because have you thought about making a claim. I got a brand new tranny once because it went out going down the road. When I mean it went out I mean it fell out of the truck while driving down the road. Do you still have the old driveshaft that was damaged. Didn't you HIT something in the road to cause the damage to your driveshaft that you replaced and now you found out your tranny is damaged from the same thing you hit in the road with your truck. I think you are seeing where I am going with this. I would contact your insurance company and see if your insurance will cover the damage from what ever it was that you hit in the road that damaged your tranny.

Keep the jeep, save the cash, and wait a yr. or so to see what kind of problems the 6.4 have, if any. Then look into buying a new or slightly used one. I bet when the 6.4 hit the market you'll see some fire sales on the new 6.0. Dealers trying to move them off the lots. I've never seen new trucks come out in FEB.
