You’re also a yankee......
Now you have made an assumption about me, one that happens to be false.
Not sure why you’re mad.
South lost, ya’ll Yankees now.
$60,000-$70,000 before your upgrades, what a bargain.
People spend a lot of money on hobbies. If a vehicle is both your DD, as well as your hobby, that's two birds/one stone.
My brother sold his 14 ford f150 platinum crew cab 4x4 with 60k miles for 25k. My friend just bought a 14 Chevy Silverado z71 4x4 crew cab with 99k for 26.7k just as examples of the deals
Thoughts on the Tesla cyber truck? It cost about the same as a well equipped 1500 size pickup. Plus no gas or oil changes.
It's a nice truck, that is for sure.
"No thank you."
One yankee calling others carpetbaggers is quite ironic.
FYI, the 1860’s want their cutting insults back
Driving my Jeep is like driving a four wheel brick, no insulation in the roof so it’s a bit noisy, and it gets terrible gas mileage. But I get a big grin every time I drive it, it’s a keeper.
I had a 2014 and my son has 2014 Ram. His has 120k on it. He has a garage door business so its been loaded its entire life. No engine or transmission issues. He still has it and bought a 2019 new hes getting ready to put in to business.
Good trucks and bad trucks for all of them.
Might want to wait until after the election. Biden will tax you into the poorhouse
Why in bloody blue blazes would anyone not a farmer or construction contractor buy a truck?
Possibly the worst vehicles on the market for the average middle aged person.
I have never owned a truck. However, I can give a response:
1. I assume a truck with a long bed and a tonneau cover available.
2. If you have kids, you have them until you die. They move their own belongings and hopefully yours, furniture, couches, boy scout stuff, school projects. It wasn't funny having to put a screen door on the roof of the family car on top of a sheet and driving the thing about a mile to be repaired. Then, there is the matter of dealing with live Christmas trees, the 8 foot long black cast iron pipe I bought at Home Depot to build a chin up bar. And I can't forget the hundreds of bags of manure, soil, sand and fertilizer I have hauled home in 16 years with the same family car.
3. If you go to Home Depot/Lowes and similar places, more purchased items that are bulky or long may fit in the long bed.
Based upon my neighborhood, I make the following entries into the worst vehicle sweepstakes, as being money pits: Jags, Land Rovers, oversized suburbans, BMWs.
Well, I own two 4runners because they are super dependable, hold their value and go anywhere I want to go, including water deeper than the average vehicle.
There are only two of us. Sometimes logic doesn't play in the reasoning for what someone drives. Everyone cant be a prius driver, and I will never be one.
It's all about choices. When you lose your choice, you have a problem. When someone else decides for you, it's over.
Edit: maybe I misunderstood your post?
Pickups have their place, uses. If not for you great. IMO if you own a house you either should have a pickup, or a hitch, and 4x8ft single axle trailer. @$500 and you can haul anything most pickups can haul. Lower to ground, cheaper, no insurance. (Depending on your insurance company). Anything I’m hooked to is covered . Check your policy, especially if it’s not a pickup to be sure.
I borrowed a trailer in CO half a dozen times before I bought one out there. Now I have two out there.
I can’t see me ever buying a Mustang. Those in my youth were not great driving machines? The Gran Torino was better in every way IMO. Held road better, moved very well, and pulled anything I hooked it to. Plus 300 miles were comfortable. Even in my 20s going 300 miles in a Mustang....
I use my pickups strictly for mall crawling.
