    I ponder the same every once in a while. I have 2014 CM with 77k. Went to dealer for wife’s RAV4 and was looking at essentially the exact same truck less 38 gallon tank and different gauges. Made no sense to add $30k in debt.
    I agree to keep it like others have said. I’m of same idea. Spend some coin to upgrade. Katzkin leather, wheels and paint correction coming for mine shortly.

    Very very true. The more I think about it the more it doesn't make sense. Just as you put it, its the same truck except for a 38 gal tank, no miles, cluster, and 30k more debt.

    I'm Definitely going to embrace my 14. My second family talked sense into me.

    Upgrades will be coming. Not joonbug level but something to tickle my fancy.

    I’ve traded in a few vehicles and regret it this day. Depressing when I sit and think about what I could have done with all that money. Keep your truck!

    You and others here have gave valid advice and made my mind up. Keeping my rig and customize it.

    Again appreciate everyone being nice and honest. Its really helped me realize the kickassery of a rig I have and what it can change into

    You sound like me. Should I stay with my 2013 4.6 with 96,000 or go to a 2020 with a 5.7. Most on here say I should stay and wait, couple said stay and re-gear to 4.88's.

    Sick looking rig man!

    Yeah since this thread was created it made me realize what I have. I've officially committed to my truck for the long haul. Started by replacing UCAs, ordering some shocks for a true mid travel, gonna paint correct, the list is unreal so I wont bore you lol

    My wife and I agreed on a 2/3 rule. Any fix that cost 2/3 what the truck is worth, will be the reason I trade up.

    Got a couple more months and I will be paid off WAY early. Got this back in 2017. Gonna embrace no payments

    From this second family, they made me see what I have. Sit back look at your rig. Shes purtty man. As i did I recommend Definitely embrace your rig. Buy some goodies for her to make up for thinking about getting rid of her

    Keep your truck and add the 2018+ LED headlights.
