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!
