    Okay folks I'm may have to let her go. I think it's worth around $16,500 or so what do you all think?

    Help me talk the ol' lady into keeping it and get rid of her ride. :cool:

    Lol nice Doug!

    I would kick some statistics her way... Show her how much your Tacoma has held it's value compared to her vehicle. So it's a better investment.

    If you do sell I'll trade you fender flares :spy:

    Take a look at my build for pics. I will try and get some more pics up tonight. The truck has 200k miles. The Supercharger has around 30k and I had the truck inspected from front to back at 200k and everything is good to go.

    I say do whatever you can to keep the Tacoma. There's not many other vehicles that are all around as good as the tacoma IMO. What would you be driving instead? What kind of car does your wife drive?

    I wish you the best! But think about it, who is going to pay $16,500 for a truck that has over 200,000 miles, regardless of the modifications.

    X2...

    I wouldn't sell my taco no matter what my gf/wife etc...had to say.

    my motto:

    Guns and truck>Gf/wife...if she says otherwise...I tell her to GTFO.. :cool:

    luckily my gf loves guns and my truck...so :cool:

    The truck can't wash my clothes or cook and clean so I also have to take that into account. And to me that is worth a lot. :D Just saying.

    You don't really care, do you.
    I'd rather wash my own clothes and cook and clean up after myself than to be stuck with a broad that would even consider letting me give up my truck. F that.

    I really don't want to sell it. The truck is awesome, for sure the best truck I've owned, and I've put a lot into it but priorities and finances come before the vehicles and toys. I will hate to see it go. I'm going to hang on as long as I can.

    A reliable Tacoma can SAVE you money--winter and snow is almost here.
    Cost of ownership is CHEAP-THINK TWICE.

    still haven't answered what your wife drives.

    A truck is a valuable asset no matter what the situation.
