Hope to have the new truck tomorrow.

Sadly the guy doing the install is backed up doing a bunch of SEMA work so no new interior till after SEMA.

Re: Time for a change

First you say you want to save, then you say you want to spend on different seat covers and other modifications.....

If you are not, you will never regret being debt free, rather than a debt slave. Yes, my wife and I are completely debt free, 56 & 51, own our home, and own 13 rental houses. We buy vehicles with cash (great fun, as the dealership personnel do not believe it until I had them the checks). I was a debt slave when younger, but that was stupid.

But you also have no idea what his financial situation is.

Yes, he said he wanted to save, but that was it. He didn't say how much he needed, what is situation was or anything else.

Everyone's priorities in life are different. I'm sure we're all happy for you your situation. I'm sure Immo is comfortable with his and his decision.

Thank you for your concern but trust in knowing that I am still saving a very large amount of $$ by not going the SRT route but also getting the bigger SUV that my family needs at this stage in our lives.

Also know that my wife is a coal miner's daughter and a Grad of one of the top business school's in the country. She is both smart and very frugal with our $$$.

I don't often post while waiting for my 2014 Citadel to go into production (it's in scheduled status), but your OT post got my attention. You realize a new vehicle purchase is one of the worst financial decisions that is made given the immediate loss in value. I applaud your your debt free financial discipline, but purely from a financial perspective only purchasing used cars makes financial sense. And if you must purchase a new car, you should consider a financing purchase when financing is available below the inflation rate, like 0% financing, since in effect the auto maker is giving you free cash to buy their vehicle. Why tie up your capital in your all cash purchase of the Durango when you can purchase your 14th rental property with the cash not tied up in the rapidly falling equity of the vehicle; I guess I made the financial case for buying the 2013 model. That said, I am still buying a 2014 since my motivations are obviously not solely financial. The D looks good! ;-)

Noted. I didn't mean to offend - just the impression I had on first read seemed a little "preachy" to me.

It's all good.

Re: Time for a change

Immo, anything else you can share about your interior vision? I'm replacing the cloth SXT (Rallye) with Katzkin leather at the dealer. My interior is gray. I think a black & blue combination would look good along with the crystal granite exterior. I've sent your two mopar themed pics over to my dealer as a color scheme I'm considering. Hope you don't mind!
