Redneck, if you wanted to make some extra money and your welding techniques can keep me dry, maybe you could do this project for me. Are you charging $65,00 shop labor yet? :cool:

I've been in 5 vehicles after trading in my nice truck. had to get my checking acct. straightened out and did so when trading into an '06 gmc sierra ext cab with 3k back. after 1 week in the sierra, I decided having a boat for me and the dog was more important than just driving around in a new truck.
traded out of that into a real nice 2000 F350 in green metallic and 6grand back in cash but the 10 mpg was too much for me to bear so I traded away my 1 ton and 5 grand for another new sierra 1500 but after bringing the truck home, hours later I remembered and also realized that I completely forgot that I had to keep full insurance coverage when you have a lien on a vehicle. I couldn't afford the 160.00 per month insurance so after driving it with only 200 miles, I turned it in and was into a chevy suburban with a 3grand balance.
Then I was really crazy....I sold that to a dealer, for 13k, minus -3,000 I owed and got 10. bought that boat for 5,500 which left me with 4,500 for a truck. found a big old tank of a chevy suburban 2500 with 212,000 and a redone front end, and other things.
I have a guy who might be trading me his dodge diesel truck for my mamma beast that seems to run and run. It was a californial govt issued suburban with only 1,500 of them made that year in '93. came with an extra set of new studded tires and the one's on it now are in great condition. Feels rough driving around in such a used vehicle compared to what I was in. Back in spring, when I first started thinking of selling, it was hard to live with the fact that i'd be downsizing into an older vehicle if I wanted some cash left over for a nice boat. It's too bad I didn't get over the being spoild part months ago or I would have had a really nice dodge truck from that dealer who still has it and a much bigger boat.
I took the boat over to Atec and them guys will sew up my boat fur me by friday. Matt, your welcome to fish the kenai with me if you get over here. If you have a dog, your welcome to bring.
