If you can't afford both, you can't afford the ford..... Not knocking you in any way.

I had a friend that towed horses almost weekly she bought a 2011 F250, within 2 years she spent over 6K on that truck just with me when I had time to work on it.(she took it elsewhere when I didn't have time to work on it) All said and done she had it less than 3 years with less than 100k on the clock and easily spent 10k in repairs just to drag horses around.

I'm gonna say the same. While fords are nice trucks as far as interior and looks, they are expensive to do repairs on, even a simple service is 200+, unless you're buying the cheapest oil and filters you can get.

I've been on the fence to buy one myself but mines next to paid for and I'm gonna run it. 5 grand for a motor is cheaper than another 50k...or 14k in your case and whatever pops up after you buy it. It's a gamble, might be a solid truck, might be junk, it's all on what you're really wanting to do.

One $400 a month payment is better than $400 and $250 plus insurance for both but I could see your point. It's funny you say that because I bought my truck and within a year I had 10 grand in parts for mine and couldn't drive it for a year because the issues it had. And I know it's a duramax site but generally guys here aren't like on Facebook with the "dirtymax or it ain't s**t" mentality. To be honest with what I paid in it before I refinanced it, plus what it'll take to pay off the refinanced price plus what I've already paid cash and cards in this truck I'm gonna have more than the 24k the f250 is. And I don't even have a built motor. It's even still got the factory turbo. Guess I gotta weigh things out more. But thanks for yalls thoughts. Opened my eyes a bit

You got bent when you bought the lb7, they don't all require that much in repairs you just started out with one that needed tons of work from the get-go

Why did you ask on here? Seems like you already made your decision.
