Default The Ranger is now mine!

I paid off my Ranger this past Saturday Just wish it wasn't rusting around me Almost was thinkin of selling it for something newer, but I came to my senses realized anything else wouldn't get the same MPG, I'd still have a payment, and not to mention the nervousness of not knowing a vehicle's history.

In other words, I'm keeping it!

I would say keep it the truck has a sentimental value and that cannot be replaced. I say keep it and turn it into a project truck. And get a new Ranger wish i could get 2010 with rear disc brakes instead of an 09 with rear drums lol

It doesn't make any sense to go back into debt (buy a new vehicle) simply because you are debt free (paid yours off). It's a good feeling getting rid of that debt though... congrats!

Congrats on paying your ranger off. I felt relieved when I payed my '99 ranger and not long after I gave it to my little brother since he needed a truck and got myself another one.

I vote for drive it until it turns to dust as well. In the mean time save money on the side (you can start by putting away part of, or all of what you paid monthly for the truck) so you can have a even better feeling than being out of dept, paying cash for a truck and never thinking of making a payment for it once you leave the lot! Congrats on owning it now though. Most people never see the title for their car in their lifetime, lol.

I already have a project car on the side though lol. This is just my daily driver. I gave her a bath yesterday, and took a snapshot, haven't had time to upload it yet though. Just need to get the rust fixed and it'll be almost lookin like new.
