Friday, while I was picking up parts for my truck and scheduling service for the car...


I got permission to grab a 2011 and beat the hell out of it for a day. My report will be out soon.

If you spend as much as I do on service and parts, bought other vehicles there, and have spotless credit..


They don't care. The dealer has seen my truck and know how I treat it. They also know that the maintenance that I do on my truck is better than 99% of all trucks out there. Same with my car. And they know that I double check all of their work.

Another Example:

My wife is looking for a new car. She can't decide between a BMW 535 or the Infiniti m37.

Both dealers are setting up weekend test drives for her. Pick the car up on Friday evening, drop it off Sunday.

At the risk of sounding like a complete ***...

I currently have, had, or have done everything in that list. One thing I would like, is to get my hands on the new 6.7 f250. And seeing that mustang, reminds me of my old 1971 Boss 351. One of a few things I regret getting rid of.

Do I think it's worth the 60k? Hell no. But I'm a cheap bastard.

My truck will still be fine for another 11 years. If Jen and I buy the land I'm looking at, I'll need another truck.


Which will be a 2011 F350 with the 6.7L
