    Well i'm in college right now and am falling behind on my bills. My truck was $360 a month and insurance was $150 a month so i finally did the mature thing and sold my truck. I really didn't want to but i can't afford to ruin my credit. I will hang around the site and chime in when i have good advice because this is an awesome forum. I will get another Tacoma as soon as i can afford it :thumbsup:

    I'm sorry you had to sell your truck, but you did make the right decision! Good luck in your future endeavors.

    Well it wasn't bad, I just knew money was gonna start being more of an issue. I was able to sell the Tacoma and pay off the bank and afford a new car, so I came out ahead with a car and no bills.

    Yeah....That's good that you saw it coming and managed to work it out. There have been a few posts this week about folks getting to tight spots in the budget and trying to offload their trucks to free up some money. And they have not been as lucky as you are.
    Like I said...I'm glad that it worked out for you.

    dude, your truck was sick. Glad you did the right thing though, many people would just go further into debt.

    One of my dad's friends built an '88 Camaro. It's been a really cool car so far.

    Yeah, i loved my truck. I did even more stuff to it over the summer and got some sick new tires and everything. But i had to make the right choice and sacrifice a little bit.
