Nothing wrong with payments if you have the money allocated.
I.E. I just got engaged, and did not buy the ring outright, but I have the money budgeted. I will have to pay more every month, but I feel more comfortable knowing my "emergency fund" has more cash. It's also a lot easier to feel comfortable spending money if you already have your "savings/retirement" set aside every month.

Money is a fickle mistress

I’m not too afraid of debt like you said as long as money is budgeted for it. Gotta have some kinda credit for the hard times and for houses and such. My credit is pretty good for my age. Was around 760 before the ford fiasco. Now around 720

Anybody know what an almost mint set of PYO wheels with 285 michilen AT that look almost new (75% at least I’d say) are worth?

An LB7 with modern injectors installed correctly is a beautiful thing. Which is why I own two

The newer engines have their benefits, but I'm a simple man, and I like my LB7s.

So finally got the banks chip that came with the truck shipped to me. Dealer took it off before sale. Think it’s a 6gun? Should I sell or install for now

Guys. I ain’t got time to deal with all these plugs and shit. Christ it looks like a harness exploded. Just need to buy an Autocal and do it right. Maybe can sell it and recover the costs of the autocal?

On another note, someone knew how to sweet talk the old man that owned this truck before me. Overpriced, over rated banks system (exhaust, intake, tuner) and just found out earlier why it rode so horribly. It’s got leveling keys. And they were cranked. So now my bolts are in the passenger floor board. So. Much. Smoother.
