    I have no intent to get rid of my vehicle. I owe nothing on it and if I needed something else I'd probably just add to what I have, as a truck is a necessity.

    i plan on keeping the current truck till it wont drive no more. that or give it to the daughter/son if we have one.

    either that or turn it into a play toy and have a newer truck somewhere down the line.

    I don't see myself getting rid of this one. I had my 05 model and got rid of it because I needed extra room and all...but this one will stay with me until I'm gone and my kids or grandkids decide to do something else with it.

    Well in all honesty I have been thinking about trading it in for a 4x4, but I haven't decided yet. I'm putting way to many miles on it and I'm nearing 100K faster than I would like. I guess with time well see what happens!

    I get bored with vehicles. Just got a 2012 Tahoe. I'll prolly keep it about 4 years. My dad was retired from GM and after the discount, I got a great deal. So, even after 3 or 4 years I'll still make out ok selling it.

    I will be keeping my truck until, God willing, my son goes to college. Then I will give it to him and get another brand new one. Provided I like the new model trucks at that time. Got eight years behind the wheel of this one before that happens.

    I have had mine 12 years, the only problem (as much as I like GM) is that it is becoming an endless money pit....... 4k to rebuild the transmission, $300 in parts to fix the power locks (that still don't work), $300 in power window actuators, etc.

    Not to mention it is 12 years old.... so the dents, scratches, carpet that needs replacing, re-finishing/ replacing the power seats......( that list will cost more than just buying a new one ).

    Since I put the money in the transmission, when the engine goes, the truck goes to the junk yard and gets crushed.... I am not spending 3-4k on an engine.
