What exactly is the difference in the two 4.0 engines? I'm not sure if that's what it's got in it or not. I haven't called on it yet. It does sound a lot meaner than my truck does.

I just refinanced my truck to 213.38/month and my insurance is only 120/month full coverage.

Yeah. I think I'm just going to have to let it play out. My dad said he'd help me if I get behind again, which is good. I think that he's jealous that I own something cooler than he does and I actually take care of it, so he doesn't want me to go get a beater I guess, haha. I dunno, but hopefully that'll work out. And maybe I will go to the bank, see if they could add some months to it to lessen the payment maybe?

Re-finance! Thats the word I was looking for! Sorry, didn't see your post for some reason. Yeah, I'll go talk to them tomorrow to see what they can do for me.

Re-finance your current truck.
The other one is too much with too many miles. I sold my 98 a year ago, was an xlt supercab 4.0L 5 speed manual 4x4, 3" body lift, 33x12.50's, custom tube/winch bumper, nice leer canopy, limited slip, excellent shape with 140k miles for $5200 or so. It was much nicer than that one, new balljoints and tie-rod ends and all.
You're looking at a high-mileage auto, probably worn out balljoints, etc. Plus it would probably have to be a personal loan because it has too many miles for banks to want to finance it. That means higher interest. Get ready for the auto to give up.

Seriously, look at re-financing your and you can probably save a lot and keep your nicer truck.

I'd work more, but that's all that they can give me, trust me I've tried to get more hours. And all jobs that I can get during the week are like McDonalds and all that, there's really not a whole lot around me...ever been to Maine? haha Woods and water is about it, until you go a good 1 to 1 1/2 hours south of me.


a jobs a job. i worked midights and went to school during the day. i still lived at home and i had to pay my insurance (200) a truck payment (paying off uncle who owned it before me $5000) and any spending money.

talk to you bank about refinancing it. see if there is any pizza places hiring around you. you can make good money. especially if you have 4x4 and live in the woods. if i owned a pizza place, i'd definatly hire a kid with 4x4. i know that i'd make money off of him at this time of year.
