Well, after careful consideration, ive come to the conclusion that it just doesnt make any sense to pay almost $600. per month on a yard ornimant. Ive finally decided to trade in my beast. The worst part is...im replacing it with a 09 Toyota Corolla Type S. Even I cant believe im going to do this, but the way the economy is, this seems to be the most logical thing to do at this point. I drove past the local Citgo and there diesel price is the highest ive seen yet. 4.17/gal! That pretty much helped me with my decision, a Corolla that gets 40+ a gallon, or my truck that gets 17 on a good day. NO BRAINER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My question is, now that im trading my truck, does this mean that im not supposed to be on this forum anymore??:CRY:

good choice, i could see you regretting getting rid of it really fast!!!

i can say that if i did have another car to drive that i would drive it instead of the truck. but until that day comes mine will stay my daily driver. even at 4.29 a gallon.:CRY:

Great choice! Is there anything better then a towing Cummins?

There are fellow Cummins-users in Sweden that loves their trucks, even if the diesel now is at $10.48 per gallon. Feel for 'em, but that really means that some really love their trucks!

have you thought about making your own biodiesel? I have always thought about it and once I saw diesel prices going through the roof I pulled the trigger and made my appleseed processor. Even with Methanol at 4.60 a gallon it still own costs a little less than 1.60 a gallon.

Hey I know you will loose some of that cummins power but at least your truck will see the highway!!!!

I see it would be a hard decision. driving a car instead of a truck is a hard sell. I bet it helped a bit when the dealer wanted you to give them your truck and your right arm to trade to that car. The dealers around here have insulted me many times with trades. So they have never got them.

Thats good to hear your keeping the truck. Diesel is expensive but IMO, well worth it.
