    I wouldn't recommend putting any money down on a lease, unless you can put 50% down. If you only put 2k-4k down and you have 300-400$ a month payments, it's a losing strategy. Put 0 down and deal with the 600-650$ a month payment.(600×12=7200/ 7200×3=21600) ($400×12=4800/ 4800×3=14400) you dont want 20000$ left over when you can have 12000$. Its all a numbers game depending if your going to turn it in or keep it. I would say put the money down if you know if your just going to turn it in. Put no money down on a lease if you plan on refinancing it for 3-4 years after the lease is up.

    Seriously, now that I have had my fun. I was going to write that I sold my ex-wife into white slavery to pay for the truck, but thought it was a bit extreme.

    I pulled into the Toyota dealers lot while driving my 06 GMC and the left front wheel bearing went crunch. That means $400 for bearings, $30 for new bolts to hold the assemblies in and a chittload of aggrevation changing them. Truck tires were at 25%, still good until spring of 2019, brakes were coming along around 8/19. Shocks were OE and had to be changed by the end of 2019.

    The salesman gave me a good trade in on my truck, and price on my Tacoma, and I saved a bunch of unpopular work on the GMC. I sure miss the get up and go of the 5.3 HO engine tho. I pay for my truck with my retirement checks.

    If you're getting blood, use more lube.

    Toyota is a sponsor for the OTOA Ohio Tactical Officer Association. The OTOA @ request issues a certificate to members (once a year) to purchase select Toyota's at invoice pricing plus any discounts offered at the time of purchase. Also traded in our 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    Divorce proceeds. Was going to order the new Ranger but a used ‘14 TRD Sport became available and I went with it instead.

    You made a wise choice over the ranger!

    Sold a Dodge truck I inherited and put that on top of my GTI trade and got a new '18 Sport free and clear.

    I traded in my 2013 Scion TC as down payment for my 2019 sr5 double cab. The TC served me well, but it's come time where I need a truck more than a compact car.

    Had a 2nd generation 2006 sr5 4 door Tacoma paid off. Had a 2.5” level kit with rims and tires. Tires were worn out and had 92K miles on it. Was looking on Kelley blue book trade in value and showed 8K-12K. So went shopping with 10K in mind and actually ended up getting 12.5K for it lol Got my 3rd gen trd sport used with level kit, Method wheels and new A/T tires 17K miles for 31K. I’m in love
