I don't have fuck you money, but we shall see. A loaded Raptor is basically $90k, so its $20k more for the R and the Shelby GT engine.

Lol $109k for a truck kinda means you have fuck you money

70k down would make the monthly payment hurt less.

Or, and hear me out, you have spent the last 3 years paying off every single debt your have (student loans, credit cards, cars, etc) to the point that the only debt/monthly bills you have now is a mortgage and utilities.


That was well over $2000/mo in bills that I am not paying anymore. Spend the next 6+ months saving that $2000 along with some bonus money in March and viola, a nice down payment on a truck you have wanted since they came out in 2010.

My best friend growing up has a Tacoma with 360k miles on the odometer. It's finally dying. Shit fucking up daily.


He's exploring new Tacos but I think I got him sold on the Tundra. He get's a vehicle allowance and works in construction. I told him he will surely be disappointed with the ANCIENT Taco motor and transmission. Tundra is the way!

If the finance committee of your household has given the OK, buy it and enjoy the hell out of it.

I do the finances but wife and I have an agreement that anything over a certain amount has to be agreed upon.


She is pushing for me to get this truck next year more than I am. 


So the only question is whether it will be a regular Raptor or a Raptor R come March time frame.
