    $42000 for a mid sized truck. Ridiculous.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I say, if a feller wants to spend money to buy what He like then, go for it.
    If I could afford it, I`d be driving one of them 4X4 Duramax Denali Dooooleys.

    No argument. That feller ain't me though. I got two kids in college. I'm plum broke. I'll stick with my $3500 truck. :rofl:

    If I had that kind of money I'd run right back to Ram.

    If I had 65k to buy a new truck I would buy a house before a new truck. To spend that much money on something thats going to lose value get beat up or even worse smashed by some dipchit checking facebook going down the road forget it, I would in prison for murder over somebody smashing my 65k ride.

    Honestly I much rather have a old beater in the driveway and be in sitting comfy in a 300k house with a nice garage or shop in the backyard. You spend more time in your house then you do your ride.
