    Just paid off my truck 2.5yrs early and NO it was not from selling drugs. I know some of you would prob assume so....o, and also it was not from hooking on the weekends.


    No truck payment is nice....

    Cool! Congrats to ya! I had my 98 Taco paid off for about 5 years and I started stashing money aside (a pretend truck payment) and I also have a lawn mowing business in the summer when I'm not teaching. I stashed a lot of that money aside too. I was going to hold out til this June or July of '12, but couldn't resist when I got my hands on an '08 Sport Double Cab 4x4 Radiant Red. I put obout $15K down and I'm on pace (with the sale of the '98 Taco) to pay my "new" one off in July. But I hear some of you, the wif is going to start saying she needs one soon too. I'd love to get the house paid off early, that's the next goal!

    Congrats! I'm getting close to paying mine off. Never had a auto payment before and I don't like it. At the rate I'm going I'll have my 2011 paid off in 4 more months..
