Times are tough...

I apologize in advance for the length of this post.. But i had to sell the PSD.. I have owned about 5 trucks in the past 7 years. None of which satisfied me.. Then i finally find the one i love.. the best truck i've ever owned.. and i had to trade her in.. it was an 03 model 4 door 4wd.. with a 7.3.. the truck in my sig.. as well as my avatar.. had 140000 miles on it and i traded it in on a 2005 single cab chevrolet 1500.. black 2wd with a 5.3.. it cut my payments in half and im getting married and starting a family in february of next year and i just couldnt carry the truck any more.. its like raising a child watching it grow old and then having it leave.. it sucks.. they gave me 12000 on trade in and gave me the chevrolet for employee price.. which was 7800 it was on the lot for 13000.. so not a bad deal.. my truck sold the next day and i didnt ask how much they sold it for.. because i dont wanna know.. but i'd still like to hang around in here even though i dont drive a PSD any more.. im not sure how that works out.. but anyways.. that being said i do have a couple items for sale off my old truck.. i have an SCT FLash 3 for sale.. and a low-profile diamond plate UWS toolbox.. if anyone is interested i'd be more than happy to sell.. i could sell the SCT for $300 and the toolbox for $150 or both for $400.. the toolbox is in great condition and the SCT is practically brand new.. i'd be happy to post pics of both if you want.. thanks for taking the time to read this..

Can I get a pic of that toolbox? Sorry to hear you had to downgrade... to a "Gov. Motors" product of all things! F150's were out of your price range?

That suck bud, but like Dave said, family first. Too bad you couldn't get into a F-150 or something .

On the bright side you now have a pretty fast pickup. That 5.3 is no slouch in a lighweight pickup and you get a very dependable drivetrain with very good mpg. It could be worse, a new kia costs the same or more.

Bummer about letting the truck go.


On a side note: An 03 with payments??? Had a buddy that back in '01 got suckered into rolling over an upsidedown truck note into a 1yr old used Dakota (4x4 4dr loaded to the hilt) for $701/6yrs. Atfer seeing his payment book, I swore I'd never let that crap happen to me. He's still driving it, but I guess after paying that much for it, I'd keep it forever too.

That's fine, I'm in no hurry. Honestly I ought to go buy tires before I do anything else... but I have such a hard time passing up sweet deals!! What part of TN are you in? I may be able to make a weekend trip to pick it up (after I find the money).

Im in the chattanooga area.. right at the georgia line.. yeah the payment for the chevrolet is only $213 a month for 4 years.. so i didnt come out too too bad.. that payment for my PSD was $392 for 5 years.. it would be different if i wasnt 23 years old and about to start a family.. its all about sacrifices.. and like i said i go to school for 7 hours a day and work for 5.. and still was barely squeaking by.. i would have given anything not to have sold my PSD.. but i would also give anything to start a family.. and besides my fiance drives a 2004 Mustang GT.. so im technically not completely turning my back on Ford..
