I was nervous about the deal already and felt it was the right thing to do AS IS. But not more down. So the wife and I tried a couple of banks around here and tried to get our own auto loan by talking to the adjusters and whatnot. But bottom line, my 150 is back home, and I bleed blue for a couple years longer.

Weve decided to go the route of keeping it, and hoping to maybe pay it off early, we are slightly relieved, but bummed at the same time. So it doesnt work, and in my mind Ive done everything within my power and out budget to try to downscale, but its just not in the cards.

It baffles me though, why would they let us drive away if it wasnt approved? Other than them knowing it wouldnt work, so the wanted us to take it home, fall in love with it, then dip farther into our savings to put more down. This isnt my first rodeo, I know how their numbers work.

Oh well, at least I can stare at the pretty blue oval longer. Whos knows, maybe a new ranger in a couple years. Theyre going to be bigger right? I havent followed them lately. Ive only been looking at the 150. Anyone check out the raptor?
Sorry to here bro. No worries. It wasn't melt to be. There's a better deal out there for you!

Yep. PWNED. But yeah, the blue one was obviously crap. It had brush scratches everywhere, and that was after a buff and detail. But Im always up for wheeling.

also, did you see the brush gaurd on the blue one.. the whole left side, the welds were cracked and it was like faling off.. i was under it looking at it and it was soo rusted! i think it was from minnisota?

if you want to go up to reiter pit we can.. there a couple trails that you would like in your jeep depending on your experience..
so tell me if your serious about going! maybe we can get a couple more ppl to go up with us?

lol stuff like that happens more frequently than you would think.

1) friend took delivery of a brand new white 08 tacoma dbl cab trd, 2 weeks later he gets a call that he had been given the wrong one, so he gave it back and they gave him the one he was supposed to get .... which was a white 08 tacoma dbl cab trd lol .... the funniest part is he had already gone wheelin a few times with the first one and there were some scratches in the bed from hauling stuff

2) different guy (no longer a friend of mine) brand new silver 06 tacoma dbl cab trd (they are very popular trucks here lol) .... 2 weeks later gets called and said he is no longer approved and brought it back

im thinking you would have some serious trouble with that f150 doiing the trails that i like.. yes there is tons of open areas and mud and rock and whatever... but ive been doing this trail the last 2 times ive been up there that is extremely technical.. my ranger is barely eeking through some stuff.. (sometimes 1 inch of clearance) so. i dont know if you would wanna wheel the jeep?!! but the f150 would be fine in the open and the roaming trails, but not the crawling trails...
im actually going up today afterschool around 4. for maybe 2-3 hours. if your interestedin going you could PM your number and ill call you. Its in Gold Bar

Reiter wouldn't be to bad in his 150, its only an inch or two wider then the rangers and has the same or better turning radius. that thing will fit down just about any thing we could.

I was told reiter is pretty bad and really tight on the trails... I was going to take my ranger up there once but was told I probably wouldnt leave without body dammage. I have friends that wheel up there all the time but they are in older yotas with exo cages so there is no worry for them about body dammage.
