I ditched my 04 back in 08 when prices were in the $4 range...Biggest mistake I ever made. I traded for a Chevy Malibu, got a decent deal, bigger payment. Found out 7 months later that I was getting orders to move to the complete opposite side of the country. Now a truck is highly useful again...Borderline necessary so the wife didn't have to follow me and file for a divorce after a week on the road. So i dumped the Malibu and get my 08.5 T. Prices rise, get smarter on the driving. I know the gas pedal is fun, but if you grandma it and keep the RPMs at or under 2k, mileage is better. It's not going to stay forever at that price, just keep the T, plan your trips out better so your only making one trip out when you do go. It's not worth trying to dump it off, your trade in price will probably be horrible and in the end, probably won't be too happy you even messed with it all. I don't know about you, but I have everything I really need within a couple miles of my house, and I have a new 21sp Trek bike sitting in the garage, plus I could probably use the extra workout. Just my thoughts though. Have a good one!
