:welcome !!

I see you have been a member for a little bit. that is awesome that you can have one of these trucks. It took me quite awhile to get one...of course I didnt really have a need for one..never thought I would ever buy a 3/4 ton truck...but its better to have and not use it, then need it and not have it.

I bought mine when I was 18 and ordered it from the dealer, 24 now and will still probably have my truck for a long time....I bought mine to use and to have something nice to go out in. Just got it payed off this year and I think it's awsome to have such a nice truck and still be fairly young and have no payment on it.

My suggestion is if mommy and daddy don't pay for it younger guys can still get a brand new truck. Providing they are willing to work for it...about a year ago I had some really tough times making the payment but I never missed one and now it's all done!!

Good luck getting these girls payed off!!! It's well worth the struggle in the end!

Welcome, Eli-
Good to see some of you "young'uns" still have some work ethics, I see a lot of guys your age think they are entitled to a free ride from mommy and daddy or the government and all they know is gaming and MTV. Bought my first car when I was 14, paid $45 cash for it I'd saved from shovelling snow and mowing lawns, had to wait two years before I could drive it legally and gas was about 25 cent a gallon. That was over 50 years ago!! I've paid cash for almost every vehicle I've owned, drove some pretty crappy cars but learned how to keep 'em all running.

Work 40+ hours a week and beyond pay my dues since I was 16. Yes this is my 4th truck but I payed for the last 2 and learned a lot. I pay my hefty bill monthly and so long as I keep plowin and townin for my shop I get a few benefits. I keep it under my shops insurance as a company vehicle and I pay the rest and all my mods. 0% interest 72 months that I do plan have having this truck running strong. I pay all mods and expect my consiquences.

Young doesn't mean a thing. There's young who still live in there basement or don't do shit with there lives.

And then there's the rest.

I by the time I'm 40 I'll have more under my belt than the rest will be able to handle. So if your a workin person and know you earn your stuff, the others are just entertainment for you. Cause I plan on runnin my family motorcycle business until my idiot of a kid can take over and I can have him do all the shit I hate that my ol man makes me do haha. Can't wait
