Take your truck back to stock?

Lets say in 15 - 20 years the current ranger you own at this very minute. Is a very rare valuable sought after truck.

They are going for a lot of money. Would you turn your truck back to stock and auction it off?

No probably wouldnt. Only reason being is that it's my first vehicle and it was given to me by my grandfather so it kinda means something to me.

I would hate to see it back to stock, but I could never stand the though of someone else driving my truck. I wouldn't sell it. I have had people ask me if I would sell it though.

No b/c it should be ultra rare If i had one of the only ones left, and it was modded. But I won't have my ranger in 15-20yrs anyways

No. I make my cars what I want, and damn the public's opinion of it's value. I hear it all the time, "why are you cutting up an early model Ghia? Don't you know it would be worth more restored? Those cars are getting rare, don't ruin it." Screw 'em, I got it because of what I want it to be, not as an investment, and I'm gonna do with it what I want, and I'm gonna drive it. Selling it is not in the plans, so it's market value is pointless to me.

Nope. Any idiot that wouldn't like my truck the way it sits over stock should be locked up!

They might not be worth anything but I'd still rock it

And no, I'd never go back to stock unless every aftermarket mod was spoken for and paid for prior to removal.

In a short answer, No.

Even though mine is still about 95% stock, no. And in 15 to 20 years, at the current rate milage it put on it, it will probably have over 4 million KM on it.

oh yeah...stock sucks.

it would have to be worth a whole lot of money to make me get off my *** and make it stock again.

i MIGHT have this truck in 15-20 years. but it sure as hell won't be my daily lol
