Thinking to sell or trade in my 2006

Post by AceMan » Fri Aug 31, 2018 8:06 pm

I'm at a Tipping Point. Do I spend a few grand to get this inspectable and drivable, or do I just trade it in for a new 2018.

2006 with 113k miles. My signature pretty much tells you what I have in it.

Currently, it needs:
Driver side lower Control arm
AC charge

I'm not exactly sure what it's worth. I'm entertaining any offers.
Did you ever notice that after Monday and Tuesday the calendar says "WTF"?

Keep it, a little bit of money now to fix it is better than 6 grand a year for 5 or 6 years.

AC isn't hard at all. Buy a vacuum and manifold from HF then you can do the AC as many times as you want.

It doesn't matter which parts you are replacing, if you crack open the AC you will need a vacuum pump and pressure manifold to charge the system. Instead of paying a shop a grand or more, buy the tools and do the job yourself.

Yea, you know I can't fix that shit!!! I wish I could. The whole dash has to come out. If the dealer time is 5.0, that equals to 2 weeks Ace time! LOL

That's not even including the evaporator core and refrigerant. :-D

Thanks, Colibri, that is an awesome offer! Unfortunately, I won't be heading to Texas anytime soon. If you were closer, I'd be there tomorrow morning! :-D

I'll be keeping the truck. I got this far. I fear that once I change the arms, and fix the AC, that the engine will take a dump. It stalled on me today. LOL.

Just give me another year with it for some wheeling next year at Rausch, and get past my current financial obligations, for one, to pay off a whole house Generak 22kw generator I literally just ordered last week! Paying balance of $5k ($275/mo) for 18 months 0%. Tough deal to beat. That would hurt me with the truck payments!
