Too much truck?

So I'm 22 years old and currently stationed overs seas in the military. I have been saving hardcore and plan on coming home and plopping a fat ass down payment (15k) on a new tacoma dcsb 4x4. Sometimes I second guess whether or not I need all that truck. I will need a truck and I really don't see myself driving any other truck and I know if I don't get a 4x4 I won't be happy. I'm wondering if I should just get what I want now or should I keep my savings healthy. I'm already working towards a retirement and I want to set my self up now and invest a little bit. Saving money in the states will not be as easy. I need to get the ball rolling on some investments and don't want to set myself back because I had to have a truck. Thanks for any advice.
-Jared

I say save the money, you have a gen2 AC, ask what the DC will do for you that the AC doesn't. Married w kids would be a decent reason of course.

I agree This will probobly be the truck I hand to my future son, and the resale value is rediculous on Taco's (if I ever want or need to). I've owned one before and liked it a lot and moved up to a full size titan and didn't need all off that truck.

I sold the AC Taco in 2010 because I wanted to move up to full size. Then sold my Titan before I moved to Japan, so I'm on the market for a new truck. Iv'e looked at used but I can't see in spending almost the same amount on a used Tacoma because they hold thier value so well. When I can get a truck without anyone elses mistakes and a warranty. I wish I still had my 2006 :/

I think you know 100% what you want and need. So I say go for it. Tacoma is the perfect truck imo. I dont see any reason not to go for it! Good luck

Then I like your idea on the big down payment and the DC, nothing worse than financing almost the whole cost.

Do it man I got mine a few days after tech school, stayed broke while in Montana making payments and a few mods. I came to Europe paid it off and now I have a awesome newish vehicle that will last me 15+ years. You will always build your savings up if you are smart with your money.

You saved that money up for a reason. You worked hard to do it. Use it and enjoy life. Money comes and goes. Keep your plans on track and have fun without dipping into them.

Man I'm a Cop too. I checked out your profile and it looked like you had been to Minot, so I was like he's definitely a cop. I was headed to Malmstrom and got Medically decertified because of a hardware in my leg. Then I got Beale. I def understand the struggles!

I was at Malmstrom. The job wasnt horrible because I worked the missle field, but the WSA guys were hating life haha. It was all what you made of it. Really nice wheeling up there also. 4 hrs from yellowstone, 2 hrs from Glacier national park so it wasnt to bad of a place.
