    Well I thought this day wouldn't come for quite a while

    Decided to trade my Tacoma yesterday.....if the dealer can get the truck he located for me. I'll know tomorrow and pick it up Friday

    I will miss my baby dearly.....it was my first new truck.

    But my daily commute changed to 170 miles round trip 5 days a week. The Tacoma after the lift was maxing at about 15mpg. It just wasn't economical anymore.

    I will still be lurking in the off-topic threads....

    Thanks guys for all the informative posts. My truck never would have turned out like it did if not for you! :cool:

    Bye Bye Ol Blue....

    Let's just say it's not a Toyota.....I don't want this to be the same brand bashing that other threads like this have turned out.

    It's a v8, leather, 4x4, 4 doors......loaded......and black.

    Looks to be about 20....the guys I know with an equivalent truck are getting 19-20.

    My payment and insurance are going to be about the same so I'll be saving roughly 160-175 a month on gas.

    You gotta do what you gotta do, but won't the difference between your new loan amount, if you are taking out a loan, offset the savings in gas? Why not just buy a base civic or something for the commute?

    Not bashing or anything. Just curious.

    No....all things staying the same..(give or take $15) the savings is still good enough.

    And I looked at getting a small car....the savings didn't justify driving 170 miles a day in a sardine can LOL
