    I chose to buy used last year mostly because I wanted to tinker with the truck. It allowed me to have some money left over to buy some of the mods I put on. I really do not like to work on vehicles that are under warranty. Even though the products say they do not void the warranty I have had problems with the dealership honoring the warranty after mods were installed.

    Drive it til the wheels fall off or until it cannot be operated safely. My dad's truck had over 400k miles on it and had a 1 ft square hole in the floor when I finally junked it. 2 motors, tranny rebuild, lots of u joints, brake jobs and oil changes...

    At some point you have to pull the plug, but if you can keep them going it still seems cheaper to me to pay a repair bill rather than monthly payments
