That's not bad at all? So 15k would take about 6hrs! U think its worth 100 bucks to pay the printer to do it?

I'm interested in your truck also. How much have you put into upgrades and wheels and lettering and everything. I'm looking to get an srw 2012 ram and want to do it right the first time like you did. Found an amazing deal at my dealer for a 55k truck with a gas engine that was custom ordered by another person who put 15k down payment on it and desided not to pick it up. They have it for sale for 42,297 otd. Payment would be 460 per month for 5 years and I'm not sure if I should take the plunge into a brand new truck or buy a used for 20 k less.

Go with the one that you can pay off quick. Keep your over head down much as possible.

Put the dump trailer to use, moving a few hundred feet of irrigation pipe, some mulch and got a new 30gal Natchez Crape Myrtle to put in my moms front yard.
