    Agreed,
    She will pretty much let me do whatever I decide is best when it comes to vehicles, but I definitely do not want her agreeing to it under duress.
    The fact that she actually wants me to hold onto it makes the decision a bit easier.

    I know a lot of guys with family situations that it might be the easiest solution.
    I am thankful that is not the case for me. I have a pretty amazing, hard-working wife that is always willing to do her part to make life happen. We have two great kids and a life that is hard to complain about.
    There is no vehicle, hobby or amount of money that is worth losing my family over, that’s for sure.

    That was my first thought too - sell the wife. But I bit my tongue and held off on that. Glad I did since she’s on board with not selling it. She sounds like a real keeper! :waytogo:

    And everyone needs to stop with the valuation of it. This thread is to talk him out of selling, not tempting him. :deal: :rotfl:

    Don’t sell it...struggle is part of life.
    I once sold a old Marlin 3030 lever action...to this day I regret it.
    In 2011 my wife’s mom got cancer, I sold my 71 Chevelle SS 427 4 speed to pay for an apartment so my wife could live out of state to be with her....I could have struggled but I took the easy way out...I regret it to this day.
    Sell that other truck & enjoy the burb everyday even if you have to make it more street friendly

    All depends on how you get rid of her and how well you cover your tracks. :whistle:

    I say if you want to have one again keeping it is cheaper.
    If you think the money now will do anything, think again.
    I have been through this with my business, one time cash flow doesn't do anything for a business except on the beginning when you are buying equipment.
    You will struggle a little sometimes it's part of the business.
    I wouldn't even sell the other truck but that is me.
    If you have a business that you need a truck in you better have a backup truck.
    No vehicle is 100% reliable so keep the burb for backup and use the 2005 for business.
