    I was thinking after looking at pics of some of the k5's and trucks. Where do you guys get all of your money from to buy 40" tires with a doubler, huge Big block, etc, etc. I know if I wanted to I could kill my credit cards and bank account(s) on my truck. I'm sure just good money managment is a big part in it.
    Thanks
    Adam

    A little at a time. Save for one tire, then you have the motivation for the other 3. Doubler and stuff. Find the 203 then the 205 and then start saving for the adapter and such. Just a little here and there is the way I do it. All of this don't really cost alot of money if you do it yourself. Occasianly I would splurge and drop a few grand at Summit or Jegs and such but those days are over. Too many bills and not enough money. Mist trucks are built out of parts that are found locally cheap. Take a look at what I am building now, 500 bucks and a few road trips and going to have a pretty nice setup. Alot of parts were freebies for just picking them up, some are loaners until I get my own stuff and the rest were found pretty cheap off of the board here.

    I collect parts over time, and usually pay for them using money i've made working overtime. The latest build I spent 18 months collecting and paying for all the goodies, and another 2 months actually installing it all.

    I have a couple of persoanl rules though. #1 is: I don't spend money otherwise needed for family stuff, bills or debt servicing. #2 is: I don't finance my hobby, everything is paid for cash...even if it's a little at a time. #3 is: no crazy deadlines...because that leads to breaking rule #1 and rule #2.
