move south, don't give up the truck just because of snow. If you have to, get a $1500 beater to drive in the winter.

Come spend a winter up here, then the snow in NY won't seem so bad anymore.

Or get all terrains or snow tires like x ice latitudes.

Learn to enjoy the one tire fire, and master the art of drifting.

it's a good feeling being paid off isn't it? i paid mine off last year, i busted my hump and lived nearly paycheck to paycheck to pay it off in a substantially shorter term than slated.

what are you gonna do with your extra cash now? me, i'm saving to get into horrendous debt, that is, saving a down payment for a house and a mortgage.

how much weight to do you have in the back? Or a limited slip? I definitely found that both can make a huge difference.
