    Payments suck. Having disposable income and not having to worry about debt is so much more enjoyable than the thrill (that wears off very quickly) of a new vehicle every couple years.

    I'm a mix of both viewpoints.

    ("I'm always going to have payments" <> Debt sucks)

    I don't mind buying something that offers payments, but I'm ALERGIC to interest. It's far more likely that the co$t of money has me walking away than it is the purchase price of the asset.

    Still, I had a pretty good time when I was younger and invincible and made economic decisions based on I could "make the payment"

    Now that I'm old and I don't want ANYTHING bad enough to let it infringe on my zero-stress personal economy. Lol

    I didn't really see it coming, but I now find it liberating to turn the "American Dream" kinda on its head. If I really can be happy in a igloo-cooler-on-wheels (RV/tiny-house), then the whole discretionary spending budget looks different. Heck, it's all almost discretionary. Lol

    I just hope the previous post doesn't apply to me because it would really SUCK if my current truck stopped tickling my fancy when it's a couple of years old. (that's coming up soon enough) I'm optimistic about that though because the last time I got in it I was thoroughly having a good time.

    I say if the financial hit is something that isn't going to hurt you then go new.

    But no payments sure is a warm and fuzzy feeling.

    But, then, what about in 2022 when the next greatest and bestest truck is out? That's why I'm not sweating it too much. There will always be a new and improved truck right around the corner. My current truck is also great. Gotta know when to say when.

    Paid my house off in 8 years 1 month. Semi retired at 48 so I could work on my terms, balancing fun with work. Retired at 59 cause of bone cancer. Because we had zero debt and money in the bank I was able to focus on healing and beat the odds and not lose my home.

    Lol sounds like you've made up your mind.

    I have to agree with a few others, I'd wait a couple/few more years personally.
    **** I'd still have my old 2013 3.5 if it didn't give me major troubles but it did so I now have a 2019 and before this had a 17 2.7, again though if I had a perfectly good running truck I'd hold tight for a little.

    this is usually how i end up with a new/used vehicle, is when my current car/truck starts giving me problems I get in the mindset that once the problems start they won't stop so I off it. I'm in a 2011 with 156k hoping I can keep it long term without any major issues. Like most have stated, i'm really trying to free some debt and get to a point to where we are not living paycheck to paycheck. now if I were still in my mid 20's i'd have a totally different approach. I think it all depends on where you are at in life and financially

    An 11-14 I don't think I would bother to mod unless I had too, kinda like how my manifold warped so I bought CRP's. If my turbos **** the bed then maybe I'll upgrade.

    But if I am chasing HP, I wouldn't bother with an older truck. The liquid cash you have to outlay to make a Gen 1 EB as quick is pretty substantial, especially vs an 11-14. Those 700 lbs are huge. Vs a 2015 it is certainly less but still far from free. I'd rather have that cash in my pocket with a low interest rate loan on the side.

    Having no loan probably does feel great, but if its a very low(or 0%) interest rate, its really not a burden. In fact in may be the opposite if you have that money generating interest somewhere. I purposefully finance every dime of my car purchases because the rates have been so low, and drag them out as long as possible without causing the rate to go up.
