Thanks, it was def a good lil truck.
Ah I dont know yet, im just going to drive my families for the time being. I work nights so there is a vehicle home every night when I need it.
But im part owner of a horse farm with my family so part of the agreement is I can use the 06 dodge 3500 thats for the business whenever I want, providing that I atleast let them know; to tow, or drive or w.e the case within reason.
So ive been driving it around and keeping my ranger in the garage for the last week or 2. This week I was on vacation from work all week which is why I was hoping to work it out to sell it this week sometime.
But I plan to attain 2 vehicles by the time my next semester starts at University of Louisville here soon because then I will obviously need my own vehicle again. Im hoping to get some form of 4 cyl truck to DD and then have an older 4x4 at home to use for winter or whenever I need it. Acourse i really could use a fullsize now instead of always using her car but im afraid if I go that route, (fullsize 4x4) that it will limit me to only being able to afford one vehicle again without having to get a payment again so its still up in the air on final details.
Right now I have about 9 grand.
So my goal by august when I go back to school is to pay the $1500 I owe to school which takes me down to $7500. Then use about 2 grand n put in 6 month rainy day fund which takes me down to $5500. Then I will probably spend about 4 grand cash on alittle daily drive (something like another early 00's s10 2.2. Yes I know a chevy but ive had 2 of them so far and they get great gas mileage, super easy to work on, and both of mine have been flat out amazing in the dependable, NEVER break department, even when mistreated and not maintained) but then that takes me down to the $1500 left over and ill probably spend that or alittle more on an older 4x4 to keep at home and use in the winter.
Thats atleast the "mature" route im trying to go lol. Even though ive always had to pay for all my things, payments, insurance, gas, etc etc im really getting sick of payments lol. I have already had 6 vehicles since I started driving and I turn 22 in july. So like mentioned id like to get down to having 2 vehicles; one good on gas to DD and the other a 4x4 with the kicker being liking both vehicles and both being paid off. That way no truck payments, im not forced to keep full coverage on them like such when you owe on them, etc etc.
Then after I finish my senior year here at college and get a full time "career" style job, then if I want I will get another payment on something new and super nice that I really want and it won't really matter because I can just keep it nice and not drive it that much and I will make plenty to cover the costs
