    Your parents won't always be around, so it's better to learn to grin and bear it. One day you will wish they were around to give you sh#t. :drinkup:

    Well I dont know your whole story but from what you said I would keep the full time job and hustle doing side work-this will keep you busy and away from the family!

    Sometimes parents see things from a different perspective. I know I've learned alot with age, maybe they have too. Some of the best advice I've ever gotten came when I wasn't looking for any.

    I have to keep using the cheap rent for now untill I try get things going with what I want to revive.

    If I have to pay the 1200 a month rent there will be no way I can even try what I'am doing now.

    I still don't get it ,why do they argue with you? is your money ,or did you talked to them for financing ? If that was the case than maybe they are right.

    Now my advise to you is in this economy keep you full time job ,don't venture on another payment unless you know for sure is going to make you money ,which judging by your posts I don't think the economy is turning around in your area .

    But if it is your money ,you want another truck your mind is set go for it.

    Its my money or the banks money I can get a loan because I'am a gov't employee. I can get loans easier than my brother can who is self-employeed.

    I calculated out what my payments would be it would be about 500 a month when I transfer the deck off of the truck I want to buy to my F-450 I can sell the truck.

    The 550 I'am paying 20 grand plus tax for I can sell my current truck for 18,000 it will look good with the 12 foot deck. I shouldn't be out too much money ya I will never get what I paid for my F-450.

    I bought the truck when prices where high. If I bought a new F-550 4x4 I would be looking at 58,000 for a cab and chassis.

    I can't afford a house. The bank requires 20% down the cheapest house around is 300,000 thats for a cheap shack. I need to put 60 grand down my morgage payment would be what my brother pays around 2500 a month.

    Right now my brother has to sell his house at a loss to get out. His work went for chit and he can't keep up with the mortgage payments. You go from making 8-10 grand a month to 3 grand a month things get tough.

    I can't even get approved for a mortage the bank requires you to have a annual income of 70 grand a year that is 30 grand more than I make per year.
