Nah, I'll keep my crappy 15 year old turd bucket going til it becomes too expensive to make sense fixing anymore. That won't take much. While on the subject, I weighed my junk at a scale while heading out camping last on our last trip. Total truck, trailer, cargo, people and the dog came in at just over 20,000lbs. Truck weighs about 8000lbs, trailer is 5000lb dry, sxs 1600lbs(full of fuel and oil), about 700lb worth of people and pets. I Figure we drug along an extra 4700lbs worth of food, blankets, fuel, water, propane and beer. I still managed to forget oil for the chainsaw....

I have co-workers who buy new trucks and just use them to commute to work.

My mom says I'm cool
