Sounds like a good decision, even if it isn't what you want right now. Set yourself up for a better situation later in life, and you'll thank yourself.

Nothing wrong with the $2k daily beater. That's what I paid for my Pontiac, and it gets me where I need to be comfortably and cheaper than car payments, even if it doesn't get great mileage by today's standards.

And yeah, the late 90s trucks are nice looking. Hopefully it treats you well. Just put part of what would have been a car payment to savings toward repairs, and you'll be good to go.

She’s sitting at my parents house now. Got a few little things to fix. Oil leak, brakes are spongy, steering a tad loose, and a MAF and o2 sensor code. But I’m tickled to death. Always wanted one of these trucks. Mileage doesn’t bother me as long as it’s not god aweful. I put $40 in dads cummins in 3 days...

I think spongy brakes is pretty normal with that generation of truck not really much you can do about it. That is when you’re used to a newer vehicle brakes.
