    I made the terrible mistake of running a report on all my truck-related expenses with my accounting software.... $12,000 on my current rig alone since '01! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif That's not counting the cost of the truck itself $3,900. For 16 f-ing grand I could have done a lot better if I had it to do all over again! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif This is also not counting the rig before this one!
    Boy, if the boss found out about this there would be hell to pay! /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Dude... that is the one question that ya don't ask.. or that ya don't want to answer. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Lets just say between my Blazer and my Camaro, it could have probably been a down payment on a cheap house or apartment.

    I just spent over $3000.00 in the last month doing my recent LT1/4L60E swap (not including the prices of the engine/trans) and new 42" Iroks. It goes QUICK!

    Not including my truck's purchase price, I have about $200 in little stuff. When I first got the truck it needed the front d-shaft rebuilt, and then needed some brake work. I put 12,000 relatively trouble free miles on it as my DD.

    THEN,
    the Rockwell transfer case, clutch, starter, windshield, and 2 tires ( pass rear and spare /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif ) all sh!t the bed simultaneously, so I parked it and bought a Buick for DD, lol.

    Aside from that, I got a bunch of stuff for cheap. Dodge D60 4.10 $150 (needs total rebuild), Eaton rear axle 4.57 w/ Detroit Locker $100, NP205(465 version) $20, 465/205 combo FREE (along with seats from an '81 K5), 4 Ford steel pizza cutters with cheap tires $50 (to replace stock split rims /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif ), and a 5.14 geared load bolt centersection for the Eaton for another $50, with good gears and bearings. So that is around $370 for hard parts not counting consumables. Pretty good I think.

    Some where around $6-8K including $1150 purchase price.

    About $1K I dumped into the 6.2L before I heedlessly ditched it. In hindsight, I gave up on it too quick. I didn't realize that I had 3.08s; I thought I had 3.73s. If I'd known that while I had the 6.2, I'd probably done an axle swap instead of a motor swap.

    Blah, blah, blah... I digress.

    What I spent versus what I could have built for the money I spent are two different things. I probably have over $15K US into my truck and you can't tell at all.
