Hey guys. As the title say, i sold the TB yesterday. She had 150,000 miles on her. Absolutly an amazing truck. id buy another one tomorrow. The reason i sold it is because my dad bought a new car (2013 mustang) (real nice car), and im leaving for the Air Force in a couple of months. I sold it for $3000 which i think is a fair deal, and i had a new registration payment coming up, so now i dont need to pay that. ill be driving his truck until i leave so it worked out IMO. I just wanted to thank everyone for all of the help over the past year, Meeting some great people, and the entertainment this site has provided. Ill still be around on here from in my free time. Im still gonna try to make some meets. But again, A great truck that will truly be missed, a lot of memories were had with it. Thanks everyone :cool: Dan P.

ALso: i will post in FS section as well: I have a rampage LED light bar i had on the tailgate. It has reverse/brake/and turn signal functions. Still works great. I bought it for $70. $30 to who ever wants it.
:thumbsup: Thanks again GMT family :thumbsup:

Just know that you don't have to stop coming by just because you sold the truck...

Three grand? Damn someone got a steal. Even at that mileage the dealership would sell for 5800.

I'm Security Forces which is basically military police...I would try to stay from this job unless you love law enforcement...or you really like working long, long hours, weekends and holidays, and want to deploy a bunch. I am actually at work now, and a day is typically 13 to 15 hours. I have been deployed about 4 of the 6 years I have been in. Mechanic job is good, don't deploy that much and it's more of a real schedule. There are two sides, the Air Force and the real Air Force, anything dealing with the aircraft are part of the real Air Force and you should be golden.

Wow, you didn't have to sell it just because you are joining the air force. When you get to tech school you are going to want wheels. You never know if you will end up close to home for school to go pick it up. I spend 5 months at Aberdeen Proving Grounds for my first tech school. I also did plenty of deployments.

ya i agree, i did think long and hard about keeping it but the main reason is because of the loan i have to pay on it still and i didnt want to have to worry about that. I plan on buying something newer and more economical when im done tech school. Something 4wd or AWD preferably. I want to try to get stationed in alaska or somewhere like that so i dont think a 2wd is practical. haha. thanks for the suggestion tho i deffenetly see whaere your coming from. Aberdeen is about 20 mins from my house now, my dad works there. its a nice base.

I guess it depends on where you are stationed and your leadership... I have been pretty unfortunate in those areas. I am stationed at joint base McGuire-dix-Lakehurst.
