Truck is Staying

Took the ranger to work to have it appraised for what they would offer for trade in. they offered $9,660. I decided to just keep it and dump money into it. I had the frame support thing in the front straighten. i welded 1/4 plate across the bottom to strengthen it up from heating up that dented/ smashed area.

Thats cool that you've decided to keep it. What about another dd?

Yeah I would have taken that in a heart beat. It's got all these problems. They will probably start selling it at $14k. $9600 is a good deal.

I thought that they offered him a good penny for the truck.

That would have been tempting for me lol.

Yup, 9600 is a good deal. Shoulda taken it. What were you expecting to get?

Lets put it this way...I picked up my 05 4x4 Ranger a year ago for about 12900, and it had 30k miles and was in perfect shape.

I decided to keep it because school is a lot at the moment and another loan even a small one is too much.

you can get a nice car for that, maybe a little more, and make up the savings in gas and not repairing it. just my opinion...

I figured I would keep it because I haven't even had it a year. Yeah its gotten a lot of work in it. But I'd rather put money into a truck I really like and not some car.

Damn lol

I heard from a Canadian while I was in Mexico that when the loonie is stronger than the dollar your prices go up. Is that true?

Dave, if I was you I would trade in for a fuel efficient car with no aftermarket support. Therefore you would be saving tons of money on gas and not spending it on a car to modify. Then when you have enough money saved up you can get a project Ranger.
I wish everyday that I would have gotten a Camry or some other reliable 4cyl sedan that gets good MPGs and isn't modifiable to much extent.

Not a bad appraisal for 100k+. Definitely look good with those wheels though.
