    Think I am over vehicles in general, blame it on having a 60 mile round trip commute now, really starting to hate vehicles...all of them...nobody is building what I want and they are so dang expensive anymore. Don't feel like spend money on....well, anything. May get a more weather proof camper to replace the Wildernest, for the truck I already have and call it good.

    I got mine on sale. It was right at 32,000 out the door. While it's far from cheap, in the world of brand new trucks trucks it was a great deal. 20171111_094819.jpg

    Yeah not bad.

    It is a bunch of different factors, after living through the last economic crash, moving, starting over, buying another house, rebuilding my business from scratch...kinda tired of loosing and spending money. Have a real hard time wanting to spend money on something that is going to loose money. Dunno, was once a petrol head...starting to loose interest in vehicles altogether.

    I don't think 4wd adds that much cost on a truck. My Tundra was $31.2k new.

    Funny how $32K is considered cheap now-a-days...price of pickup trucks has gotten waaay out of hand. Have been reading that 84% of vehicles are financed and 33-34% of trade-ins have negative equity on them. Do wonder when the pickup truck bubble is gonna burst.

    If you do some digging and are willing to go with a lower spec model, can find 4WD fullsizes sub $30K....if you really go bare bones, which trucks aren't really bare bones anymore. You can get a regular cab V6 4WD sub $25K. Remember when a simple regular cab truck is all a guy ever needed...

    I don't know if the truck bubble will burst. Sure there are a lot of pretenders financing everything, but trucks, especially heavy duty ones are usually bought as dual purpose vehicles and for cash or reasonable finance terms- if there is such a thing. I don't so much think pricing for what we get I out of hand, I just think peoples perception of what they need is out of hand. Someone was talking the other day about crazy house prices compared to their parents days- even though their parents lived in a house third the size of what they think is required and it didn't have granite countertops and an outdoor kitchen--- but they lived just fine.
    Well, a hooker would get the joke.
