Question for ya?

The truck in my sig is my daily driver. My question is this, i really don't use it much, its just a driver i don't pull trailers with it, i don't use it for work. I was thinking about trading it off and getting a newer f150 with a 5.0. Should i keep my truck and fix the rust, or get something different? Oh, the truck is paid for too.

I'm in the same boat. Mine looks purdy sitting in the driveway and is always fun to wrench on when I get a minute to decompress. I feel like mine is more of a hobby truck. I tow once in awhile and it sees work maybe once every other month. Other than that, it's a weekend cruiser if I get away from the house. I guess it depends on how much you love your truck. I have such a strong relationship with mine that I could never let her go.

+1 to keep!

My opinion - car payments stink. But if buying a new truck , paying the note , the extra insurance , and eating the depreciation is your thing then get rid of it. Again , i don't like payments and being as payment free of a life as you can get just makes it that much better. I don't use mine for what is intended for at all. It's a street queen grocery getting kid toter , but , it's paid for , nothing else touches the room it offers inside , it's easy to wrench on , it's pretty heavy and safe to drive in this ever growing world of moronic drivers , and it completes the same task as any other newer vehicle and some when the need arises.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.

I love the truck to death, it is paid for. Im just not liking the rust that's starting to form on it right now It looks like I'm going to have to replace the bed and get all four doors fixed on it. Oh I love the space I get inside and she runs great for being stock.

Wouldn't want the Eco boost. Rather have the 5.0, sounds way better.
