So somebody on another group is looking to buy a 4x4 ranger, and the ones he is looking at are listed for $13k and $15k. I paid $2500 for my B4000 six years ago! 

I've always said that I would never sell my truck, but life has changed, I work from home, my truck has sat for a month and a half without being driven, my wife has a hybrid and so I drive it instead, since it gets 52mpg vs 16, my kids have all gotten too big for the jump seats in the back, so I can't take more than one kid at a time, and I have 5, so if I go anywhere and my wife's car isn't available, we have a Tahoe I can drive. I work for U-Haul and I get 25% off rentals, so I can rent a $20 truck for $15+ miles for the once a month I actually need an actual pickup truck. If somebody offered me $15,000 for my truck I would be HARD pressed to say no to that money. 

anybody else seeing increasing values and wondering if it's a good time to say goodbye to an old friend?

I see almost double what I think it is worth often. I see Rangers sell for 5k that I wouldn't buy for 2500.

The time is now, with fuel reaching record highs nobody will want to drive a truck that gets half the fuel mileage any newer car gets. Especially if they have longer than a half hour drive.

We will see 7 bucks a gallon before November. Then it will start going down or the US will enter civil war depending on how much cheating is done in the mid terms.

We'll see I have a feeling that elections this year are going to be very very contested from both sides, and gas prices going up even higher long before anything gets resolved.

We'll see, I threw it up on FB marketplace for $15k, just to see what kind of response I get. and so far it has been one very angry dude who offered me $1000 for it and told me to f myself when I surprisingly rejected his offer.

AIC - I am still waiting on Youtube updated on the Jeep.

I understand letting loose the Ranger with 5 kids. I drove my Ranger for the fist time in two weeks yesterday. I filled it up at the beginning of the month and it still has over a half tank. My wife's Audi gets 27mpg around town and with both of us in retirement mode it is rare that we both need transportation at the same time.

Which channel are you subbed to? I am bad about just uploading to one channel. Here's my last video on the jeep:
https://youtu.be/J2ByLikoocs

I am actually going out to work on it shortly. I was going to go out earlier but we had a dust storm blow in, so I'm waiting for it to clear out (or at least RAIN!) 

That's the thing. we have 5 cars right now. The jeep isn't road worthy yet, but should be soon, The Tahoe, The Truck, my wife's car, and we're babysitting my dad's fiat 124 spider, which gets over 30mpg. So even if I have to drive somewhere by myself I usually take the spider, as it gets double the MPGs my truck gets. My dad's truck is also available for me to borrow (my brother is baby sitting it, my parents are on a church mission out of state right now). and only my wife and I drive. so 5 cars for two drivers, neither of us commute (stay at home wife and I work from home). it's crazy just how few miles we drive at all. I feel bad just letting it sit. I only have about 1500 miles on year old tires, and that's with two out of town trips to take one of my kids camping! 

If I cannot sell it for crazy money I'll keep it, the cost to own it has been next to nothing. The spider will be gone in the spring. the jeep should have little overhead to it. The tahoe too. My wife's car is expensive, just because it's new (insurance/taxes).

I am subbed on AICvideo.  Somehow I missed that video.

Fiat 124 Spider? When I was a senior in high school I bought a 3 year old 76 Spider for $3200 that had 20k miles on it. I had it for 6 years and sold it for $2000 with 150k miles on it. It was not very reliable as I blew the head gasket at 80k miles and replaced it with a junkyard 1800cc. I went through 3 transmissions in that car. It probably sat on blocks for over a year total time as I had to search for parts to fix it. The last transmission my dad picked up in Europe and got it back to me. The shift rods were made of a soft metal and would wear down which introduced metal slivers in the fluid that ground everything else down.  Around town it got 30mpg and at 70 mph on the highway it got 35mpg. It had a "Fittipaldi Sport" package with a stiffer suspension, alloy wheels, leather steering wheel and seats. A fun car.

Yeah, he has a 2017 First edition, they made 124 for the US, in this color combo:


It's basically a Mazda Miata with the engine from a 500 abarth, and some different styling. My dad lived in his late teens/early 20's in Italy and wanted to relive that a bit.

Ah! The reliable Fiat 124. I have a buddy that bought a 2017 124 for his daughter when she graduated high school. She got a fast pitch softball full ride at Auburn. She has burnt the road up between Atlanta and Auburn with nothing but regular maintenance.  It had over 100k miles before she graduated last year. She is still in it with no plans except to drive the wheels off of it.

Yeah, my parents don't have that many miles on theirs and I have only put maybe 2k miles on it in the time I've had it, but they have road tripped it all around our state and neighboring states:
