We Bought A Truck

It took a lot of hunting for the perfect truck, but we finally found her! She's a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 V10 with just 113,000 miles on her. She was garaged pretty much her whole life, only used to tow a boat during the summer & the previous owner took such good care of her. She's in mint condition. In the back of the owners manual, he wrote down every single oil change or anything he ever had done to it, the mileage at the time & the location of the service. You can tell he loved this truck and took reeeaaallllly good care of her...and now it's our turn! I feel so incredibly blessed, once again, that we were able to get this for our family. DH is happier than he has been in a long time!

We are officially truck owners again, and we were able to do it all on our own!

Me!

Now, that final obstacle is overcome and we can move on to the last...hitch up, and pull this beast 1666 miles across the country, with no prior experience of hauling such a large trailer. Lol! We'll be good though. I have complete faith in my Husband's abilities. Our goal was to pull out of here on Saturday, but we are a tad behind schedule. We have time though and there's no need to rush and put ourselves in danger, so when all our ducks are in a row (hopefully Monday @ the latest) we'll head out.

This is so exciting!

***We bought our truck from Trinity Motors on Platte & Prairie in Colorado Springs, CO. They are a FABULOUS smaller car sales place and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in the market for a new to you automobile. They worked with us at our pace, were not the least bit pushy, helped us out immensely when it came time to finance (we put 1/2 down in cash & financed the rest) with our not-so-incredible credit score, and we were able to get a warranty for it as well (for a lil bit more).They made you feel like you were family and we will not hesitate to go back there if we’re ever in need of another vehicle.
