Whoa there cowboy what's the rush, pump the brakes!.... You should be able to get another 70K out of that Baby!
Yeah I really should, it isn't doing anything to make me think that it won't last a long time yet. No drips, no drops, no oil burning, rock steady truck.
Needed throttle motor at maybe 60-70K miles. Have done maintenance myself except a coolant flush and transmission oil, only other repair I can think of is that damned charcoal canister shutoff valve (I think I am good on that, now that it sunk in to NOT top off the fuel tank, had to do it I guess twice), I had to do the blower motor resistor and harness once, dealer did the thermostat, I got the check engine light for that, and THAT was weeks after the coolant flush was done so they cut me a deal on the thermostat, they admitted they should have at least recommended the thermostat.
Probably 4 sets of tires. Killed a deer with it a year ago and patched it together myself.
It's just time, I think this is about as long as I have kept a vehicle except a motorcycle I owned for 20 years.
It just getting a bit rusty around the edges and can't see actually restoring it, and you know the smells and stains and scratches.
My wife has actually said I can replace the truck whenever I want.
Like my tag line says I just wanted to wait a few years for bugs to work out and updates, so once I heard the 3.6 is upgraded and will have an 8 speed instead of a 6 speed, it's like, "OK I guess that's what I was waiting for, good enough".
