    its going to be very expensive and time consuming....

    tell you what....you can buy my truck, already LT'd, for $30,000, and I'll even throw in some spare parts.

    ^^^x2, but being you have the choice of LT or a boat, Id choose LT in a second. I've figured for the LT set-up I wanted to get it would be about $15,000 but closer to $16000.

    i'd say go boat all day, but i love being out on the water. maybe even more than driving the truck.

    Boats are similiar to LT . Bust out another thousand . Funny how the guy narrowed it down between $15,000 and $16,000.

    Yeah if your prelim is adding up to $15-16k then your real number will be more like $20k. There is always more than you plan

    thanks for the input guys i love my truck and i am looking to spend about 9k on a jetski or small fishing boat i think the LT might have to wait considering i just dont think i have alot of time to maintain and money to spend on it. thanks for the help but dont want to completely neglect my truck so i may add a leaf or something.again i appreciate the help and boat may be the better choice after all i live in louisiana
