Well you should of been saving all that 'extra' money for the last 3 years and have plenty put back to live on your own by now.

Or just live in your parents basement forever leaching off them. Either way.

I moved out at 17, it's a responsibility and not wanting to mooch off your parents kind of thing...
On another note, took the truck to a shop yesterday, they said the motor sounds healthy, but it might have a collapsed lifter... Quoted $2k for the repair...

I'm not "mooching" off my parents. I give them a lot of money to pay for my expenses. My insurance and all my expenses are half of what they would be if I were "on my own"

Even though I make a good amount of money, I will not get by on my own, or simply by having roommates. Especially since my buddies don't have stable jobs therefore a stable income.

I would lose so much money because housing here is too expensive. I'm also still in school. Plain and simple.

Although when I was at minimum wage I was making more per hour than my buddy who was a licensed EMT in Pennsylvania. Just food for thought.

Does anyone REALLLY believe that buying a part that is SLIGHTLY cheaper will cause the truck to act up vs buying motorcraft??

Misfire codes, coil pack changed already (p0302,p0316,p0300)

and hi everyone, I am back! for the time being

Not that one. I just have to look cheaper. I did find out i have a A+ credit score 698.
I may just try and find a lower mileage 7.3 or early 6.0.

This was the truck to get though. Fairly clean. Had scratches a 10 year old ranch truck would have. Tires looked almost new along with the front brakes. Drove amazing, everything worked. 126k miles. Interior was spotless. Ranch hand fromt and rear bumper, back up camera. Just cant justify $425/month 4 years for a 10 year old truck. Dealer is a "one price" dealer. They wont budge on the asking price. If I would have dropped the warranty it may have gotten me to the payments I wanted but I wont buy a stock 6.0 without a warranty.
