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.2000 Chevy Silverado EXT Cab Z-71 4X4

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
