    I wouldn't do it, but the owner is probably quite pleased with his street truck.

    Paid an extra 3500$ for a 6 year/100k mile warranty covering everything from servicing to tire changes.... I could've gotten a new suspension for that price :/

    I've got the StayNu waranty package and 6 years/100K for $800. I've already got all of it back with StayNu after backing into a tree and dented my truck bed (plus they threw in a complete interior refresh detailing (that's $200.) It could be a $4000 fix just for the truck bed alone...and I still have another 4 years to go.

    Who's the sucker now???

    how does the warranty work when you backed into the tree? lol

    But you get free tires you can roast them on dirt roads and still get your money back and your covered bumper to bumper im guessing. 3500 is pretty steep but all your fluids will be topped off :broccoli:

    Should've gotten that because everything else I can do myself. I was just pushed by my relatives to get it, as been saving since I was in middle school for a vehicle and had enough to pay the total at the dealership. Already got scratched up fenders offroading :/

    Don't know man. Called them up open a case then send in some pics of the damages. They sent out professionals to your driveway. I didn't even have to be home.

    You know why for Adidas the track suit stripes are vertical, but the shoe stripes are diagonal?

    Greatest thread ever. Without looking I’d guess 90% of my build is useless

    It's so interesting what some folks love and some folks hate. I removed all TRD logos from my truck and see people adding as many as they can. I went 4x4 Sport for the price (and I don't climb rocks with my truck) but my first thought when I saw the scoop was "I bet I could throw a light in that thing". People in here hate on the scoops and light bars. I hope nobody is driving a Sport thinking they look like their scoop is actually useful, I just think it looks cool. I know most folks say they paid for the Limited because of the leather seats and audio but I hated the two-tone. I might've paid the $10k to not have the two-tone haha. My build is mostly me obsessing about blacking out the entire cab, I'd have my hands full in the Limited! Different strokes! If you think it looks good it aint useless!

    @CherokeeCajun Nice to see another Sooner fan here. :cheers:My pup (in my avatar) is named Boomer.

    As you said "to each his own" I drive a Limited and I love it. :crapstorm: Many will hate the black and brown interior, but I like it. Reminds me of boots and tack from when I was an Okie in OK. :quickdraw:

    Now I am displaced to FL the state of bewilderment and the elderly. Apparently, I am aging my way into acceptance here. :facepalm:

    My "useless upgrade is OU emblem on my tailgate. I also put one on my wife's Rav4, and she loves it!! :thumbsup:

    I have the limited and love the interior as well. The pictures I saw made the interior leather look a lot lighter than it really is, which is what I didn't like.

    Most of my upgrades are useless, but whatever, I like them lol
