Decisions. Decisions

So, my wife just informed me I can have 2000 for one of the following things so we are sitting here watching miami ink and here are my choices

1. 33x12.5 BFG's with 15x10 crager black rock crawlers and a Body Lift (which means the 22's wouldnt go on my truck anymore)

2. a boat i found some nice ones here in MN for 2k and under

3. another massive tv for my man cave and some stadium seating



or just get some new 32x11.5 and a bunch of Wii games and calling it a day.

how much does a pair of ***** cost? My future wife doesn't control my money

But uhh, if I were to be serious, i would go body lift and 33s.

OR buy a stand up jetski.

I'll wait for my future wife to kill me when the marriage goes sour.

Get what you want. I don't see why other opinions matter since in the end it's what you will want.

hey have you heard of the gas banks in St Cloud?

You smart enough to use those badboys? Save your 2K until january then buy 2000 in fuel, and then mid summer you'll have saved about 4K, and voila, investment.

PS: You're the one at home the night before 4th of july. It's only 7 pm here and I'm just getting in the mood for getting ready to get liquored

I would get the boat personally. You have a nice truck,boat you could go fishing and what not. Even take the kids.

If it where me I would buy new stuff for the quads, kids or mine. Wouldn't matter.

Red ak ranger: wait till you get into a serious relationship it all changes! but you get to tell her what to do as well hehe

if you've got a family, put the $2000 in the bank. i've seen many people think that they had "plenty of money" and spend it like they were never going to have any financial trouble. but, if you intend to spend the money, spend it on the kids.

I guess my point is maybe he has already spent alot of money on the kids and would like to do something for himself? You always got to treat yourself as well

Get the lift and the 33s or maybe 35s. Sounds like a plan to me.

Im going to go with, throw it in the bank and put it away for the kids when they're old enough to drive, you can help them buy a car. Thats what id do. Even though 2000 bucks is tempting to play with.

But its up to you really. Thats what id do, but im not married and single so I really have no idea what thats like to have a family. Good luck with whatever you decide.

yeah, but 400 a month (200 a check) go into a savings account for my kids, when they turn 16 what ever they make that summer before i will match them. 2400 a year per kid. in 16 years they will have 38k+ for match of car AND graduation money or college. PLUS, my family get tuition assistance (ARMY), and I have a purple heart which entitles my kids to scholarship money. this money is just for play. I ahve plans and things in order at home

Honestly. Keep the deuces and go a bit lower. It will cost you all of maybe 300$ to do all of it. If you don't like it, a socket set will put it all back.

yeah i wanted to man, but in MN it isnt practical, I will NEED 4WD now as where when i live in TN, it wasnt an issue. thats why im looking do download the 22's and look for functionality (i dont think that is a word) I have the 32x11.5 in the garage which have PLENTY of life...and the brand new set of the goodyear 20's sitting there, now im looking at having another set of tires int he garage.
