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.

truck $6000
cost to repair it (salvage title) $2000
lift $2000
tires/ wheels $1300
gears, tuner, headers ect $1700
stereo $1000

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.

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.

$ 9,950 sales price

$ 900 for a 3 year extended warranty

$ 150 Kobalt Toolbox

$ 450 for new tires

I'm not gonna count oil changes, wiper blades, wax, etc.....

$ 11,450. Total

I put $1,700 down , and took out a 5 year payment plan for $219.60 a month, I've got 27 more payments to make and it'll be paid off.

This was a 2003 Ranger XLT with air, automatic transmission and factory bed liner, purchased in 2007, with 31,500 miles on it, in very good condition.

The plan was to buy a nice truck with low mileage, pay it off in 5 years, and drive it payment free for another 5 years.....so far I'm right on track.
