Brakes and all the misc crap(oil, air filters, spark plugs) $500
Wow, cheaper than I was thinking...
Hell I've put more than that in gas in it over the past 2 years....
My truck I paid 14,000 For
and about about 3,500 in aftermarket parts and repairs
so around 17,500- 18,000
If it wasn't for the warranty the total would be around 20,000-22,000 but the warranty saved me about 3,000 in repairs and labor for the past two years, most of that price is labor.
total, aprox $14,000 plus many hours of labor rebuilding the truck after it was purchased totaled from a salvage yard, all the work gone into the mods thoughout the 7 years ive owned it and all the memories made with it makes the truck priceless to me.
Brand new f150- $34K otd
Mods and maintance ~ $10K to this day. Still a long way to go haha
What the hell was I thinking when I signed up at 17 for a $560 truck payment! No handouts here though! Working two jobs in high school now one good one and going to college full time. While footing the bills day in day out. This degree can not come soon enough!
I bought my truck in 07 for $3500 (RIP OFF!) thinking that it had a motor with only about 60K miles on it. Invested probably almost $3000 into engine repairs, and another $1200 into just maintenance and aesthetic items.
I plan on doing even more to it that will probably cost me around another $7000 maybe more, maybe less. So when I'm all said and done, I am probably going to be looking at 12-15K into it.
Not to mention I've spent way too much on DD's. Dodge was $4000 with a **** ton of stuff done to it, and now my new truck is even more than that and it's not even where I want it to sit.

I've got about $2500 in my 86 (paid $600 for it). I still have some stuff I want to do to it though.
The 97 I've got about, $500 in it now (paid $200 for it). I've got a 8.8 diff., 351W, and other various parts. I plan to have at LEAST $5000 in it when I'm done.
I started a project with my new truck since I bought it just a few weeks ago. I have an empty shoebox that I put [U]every single receipt[U] that contains truck parts in. This way, when my build is finished (years from now) I can look back and see how I drained all my money away just to be a bada**. Oh well, a sacrifice I am willing to make.
