    last week the whole brake system on my truck decided it was going to die, the ABS computer, the master cylinder, the lines... then a freeze plug let go too!
    needless to say it was going to cost a lot to fix it all. I decided to upgrade and get a f250 super duty with a plow ( old truck was a dodge dakota)
    i found one at a dealership for the right price and put my offer in and applied for financing, the next day i got a call saying i was approved and i had to go get the truck, the only thing is it wasn't all set they forgot to add some paper work it's been about a week now of no truck and my clients are getting upset.
    i'm waiting by the phone today freaking out about when the truck is going to be ready or if i have just wasted too much time

    end rant i feel better now

    How did you make out? Thats why it pays to know someone else that owns a truck you can borrow.

    I feel the frustration, seems like every time when it rains, it pours.
