Finally getting my first diesel

Finally getting my first diesel truck. I have wanted one for years and when the body style changed in 2008, I decided that's the style I wanted and I had to wait til I could afford one! When your married with kids it seems things I want aren't a priority. I found one at a dealer a couple hours away and went to look at it Saturday. I went ahead and bought it but it had an oil leak they sd they would fix and deliver it to me. Now they have told me its the turbo leaking at the pedestal and they have to pull the cab to fix it. I guess I am glad it started leaking then instead of after I bought it. I am not a very patient person and this waiting game sucks. I thought I had waited long enough already! We are supposed to leave for Florida on Thursday for spring break and really hate to wait til I get back to take delivery of the truck. Decisions decisions.

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

You're right, waiting is a pain. Hopefully, though, it will be good when you get it.

Yeah, I really couldn't wait either, I got lucky and bought the last best looking 2008 at the dealer near me.
