I say keep it.....
I have put my blood sweat and tears into this thing and absolutely love it but I have my first baby on the way in 3 months and the extra cash from (downgrading to the diesel) I could get the wife a newer larger car for us and the baby. I already have the cash for the toyhauler and would like to get atleast a 23-24 footer and that would be completely maxing out the tow weight for my truck or maybe even more.I say keep it.....
You saying that because of the crappy mileage of the titan or the high price of diesel?:huh:
Either way with gas its not like I put alot of miles on my trucks anyway because I work so far from home I drive the civic to work. :eyebrow: I bought the titan brand new and in 3 1/2 years don't even have 23k miles on it. Of those miles is about 20 trips to visit my parents in Arizona which is 500 miles round trip so that tells you how much I use it around town on the weekends.:crying:I've towed a 35 foot 8,300 pound travel trailer with an 01 7.3L Excursion(Built on an F:250 platform), love it. Loaded weight about 9,500 pounds.
There is a performance chip installed into the Ex's ECU and tows the trailer like a dream. I would get a bigger "chip" or power programmer. Best investment made on it!
I love my Titan but towing with a 7.3L is aweeesome.
$1030 for the whole shebang, truetrac, gears, flange, bearings etc. plus installation. Like I said the big thing was just about towing the toyhauler. Since the truck is paid off in a couple days its time to get the new polaris xp 900 to go with a toyhauler.:rockon Just trying to do my part to stimulate the economy lol.Keep it. Trutrac = $500-600?? Gears are $250ish? Install maybe $500-600? So you have a fully paid off rig that can do what you need it to do and NOT have payments on top of having to gas it up.
A beautiful truck, I would hate to see it go.
Sell the toys if the need is to get the wife a car and pay for kid expenses.I didn't see where you mentioned the toy hauler you want but the best thing to do, IMO, is to keep the truck you love so much and simply look at toy haulers within its' limits. Your truck will easily pull a decent sized trailer even w/o the tow package.
Between what you'll lose in all the mods you have and trying to sell a 13 MPG truck while gas prices are on the climb, I think you should sit tight because you're going to lose waay too much.

I literally have no other bill than my mortgage which I bought my house in 09 and the mortgage on my 3 bedroom is less than rent for a 1 bedroom apartment. So I am not too worried about diapers and such. These decisions are so hard to make the biggest one is going from a truck I bought brand new with super low miles on it to a diesel with about 150k on it and its gonna be a Ford or Chevy.:crying:With a new baby, you should wait on the toy hauler or get a smaller one. Get Momma her new ride. Your truck is paid off, that means more $ for toys or diapers.
