Getting rid of ranger

well in order to get my wife a better vehicle i'm going to get rid of the ranger. i've already found a replacement truck and i'm very happy with it. it is a 1991 Ford F-250 4x4 with a 7.3L deisel motor. leaf springs all the way around so i can get a lift fairly cheap for it and i can go big. i will post pics of the truck later, but i plan on staying in the forum but will be looking for one for the F-250.

i'm getting the deisel as a daily driver but i will be alternating between the F250 and my motorcycle. my wife wants a Fusion or a Equinox. And i can't keep the ranger because the military doesn't pay me enough to afford two car notes but i'm getting a 4x4 so i'm happy about that and when we sell my wife's old car I can get a turbo kit from banks for a decent price.

I can understand not affording 2 car payments, My GF wanted a new car and I just couldn't afford it, we did some searching and got a great deal on a 99 taurus with the vulcan and 47K on it for 3500 bucks from an older gentlman. Good luck with the truck, sorry to hear you have to sell her, I don't know if I could do it....
