My wife keeps telling me NO... But I keep telling her Id rather drive a cheap beater like a neon or cavalier so as to save on gas. She drives about 80 miles round trip every day for work and the Van isnt much cheaper... I told her she could drive the beater to work to save on gas ( 2X fill ups per week at $60+ =$120+ a week ) where a neon/cavalier would run maybe $20 a week in gas. Save the van for bad weather or trips since its an all wheel drive and does well in snow and ice. Looks like I will be keeping the truck for the time being as we managed to get back on track but cutting down on the kids spending/junk foods... But if I get a decent offer on the truck I will consider it still. Thanks for the comments on the truck. I love the Ram, would love to keep it as long as everything is good here at home, Id rather starve or live on the streets before my kids.
