Are they inflated everywhere? Why is a 20 year old truck still selling for 20k? Why can’t I find a cheap truck with decent miles?
Gas just hit $5a gallon nationwide, give it time. I get the feeling you're a zoomer who hasn't experienced a crash before. Buy an econoshitbox in the meantime to daily while you wait for truck prices to come down.
It's good that they're high. It keeps them out the hands of tradesman/country man larpers who don't even need a truck. Less of these faggots off the road the better. It's at a price where actual tradies and farmers can afford them while the common man who works a shitty low paying office job can't.
Who cares? Fuck trucks. Buy a van.
>>25600144It just means more rich kids get them. Would u really rather see some brat in one than a tradesman? Even a tradesman larper is better than a spoiled brat
>>25600145No, fuck vans.
They don't make them like they used to. All there is to it
>>25600143Well that’s my question. Gas prices are through the roof. Less and less people have a need for pickup trucks. Everything points to there being a low demand, so why are the prices continuing to rise?
>>25600149Electrician here. It's better to be a rich kids toy, because that would mean less of them on the road. You don't understand how fucking stupid my coworkers are. They can wire up a switchgear and are smart as fuck yet once they step outside of work they are just crass aggressive dudes who will tailgate you. Most people in the trades don't need a truck, I can fit most of my tools in my 370z.
>>25600144So based, fuck the average truck nigger
>>25600180Because that's how it works, for a bit. Easy credit is drying up, but not gone yet, the prices on most things yet are still priced on 2020 fuel and shipping costs, and sellers require sometimes lengthy periods to realize they're no longer in a seller's market.It takes time for broad economic trends to show up on the local level. You should have seen Odessa/Midland when oil prices tanked, every new construction house had a for sale sign in front of it with a luxury 3 row SUV or luxury trim truck in the front yard with a for sale sign on it too.
>>25600180Low intrest rates and inflation. Don't worry, the bubble won't go on much longer. Wait until people start to get fired and they realize a $500 car payment is retarded
>>25600139Because after next year every truck will be a hybrid/full EV with a $700/month subscription to start the car + $15/month to use the AC(with added fees for carbon offsets and a $7.99 convenience fee) and the title will stay with the dealer. This is your last chance to buy an actual car. And even then these will be phased out as quickly as possible either through taxes and rising gas prices or straight up ending registration of pre-Great Reset vehicles.
>>25600261I'm not really gonna be all that upset at the future unemployed, I imagine they're going to be disproportionately the work from home types who have been laughing about doing 3 hours of work all week.
>>25600149No way a rich kid is driving a 25 year old truck
>>25600182>muh needs just get a Tesla and go get fucked by a pack of gay niggers
Trucks are popular because of woman brained guys who like to sit up high because it makes them feel safer, and the large vehicle also serves to bolster their self confidence.
>>25600326>trucks are gross and icky! i'm a big strong man so i drive a sedan :)
Everything is expensive, not just trucks. Can’t even get a decent used car south of $10k anymore.
>>25600375That's not even remotely close to what I said, but it sounds like I struck a nerve.Caring so much about whether or not strangers consider you suitably masculine is really fucking queer.
>>25600381Caring so much about who drives a truck is really fucking queer.
>>25600384You sound like a fag.
>>25600384I have faith that you'll learn to read eventually.
>>25600405>>25600418Found the retards in this thread...Yes, it was exactly what you said, there's no other way of translating it. Fuck off, we're full.
>>25600424There's no translation needed. Trucks are so popular because fags obsessed with appearing "alpha" have flocked to them because of their size, turning a work vehicle into a pseudo status symbol. You're one of those fags, and it upsets you to have it pointed out.
>>25600326Sport cars are popular because:-woman brained guys who think people care about looks-it makes them feel faster-the performance potential also serves to bolster their self confidenceA real man owns a truck, a dirt bike, and a Harley
>>25600405>>25600418>>25600441Anti-truck posters are the #1 most butthurt posters on /o/ and the #1 most reddit posters on /o/

>>25600441Anon it’s a safety thing. If you drive a cuckwagon econobox like yuropoors you’re fucking dead if you get into an accident with one of these 4,000 lb behemoths on the road. Thanks to Psychopaths Steve Jobs and mark Zuckerberg everyone spends most of their commute staring at their phones now so accidents are almost guaranteed
>>25600486It's an illusion of safety.

>>25600941You talk like a fag, and your shit's all retarded.
>>25600995k.I just wanted to know why old reliable trucks are still high in price because I don’t want a new bloated one, and like clockwork, the anti-trugg redditards like you pop up one by one in the thread.

>>25600150Afraid of being called a creep? Women secretly think truck cucks are creeps.
>>25600145What about SUV
>>25601242Why would you ever do that? The 2022's on the lots already have rust.
>>25601448Thankfully I'm married to even care.
5.7 tundras are coming down in price because people are rage quitting 13mpg.
>>25600497>>25600503It’s like an arms race here. In Europovertystan it’s all dense traffic and narrow streets with other little econocuck cars so you tiny little cuckwagon is relatively safe.In the US we have these massive behemoths crowding the freeways so if you’re in a tiny little box you’ll get squashed coming head to head with one of them. This means you have to go bigger too.
>>25601658Poors shouldn’t even be allowed on the roads.
>>25600375sounds like it struck a nerve, breh.
>>25600144mm, i've been working an office job 3 years and i make way more than tradesmen, i can afford a truck if I want.
>>25601045It's not anti-truck to say that most truck owners are faggots. You can like them and admit the latter, like you for example, you probably own a nice truck I would like, you're also an extreme faggot, wildly homosexual, I am supremely happy I am not you.
>>25600872>white collar larpers make more than the blue collar typesLook at him, look at him and laugh.
>>25601829The only thing you can afford is a dick to your mouth. Faggot
>>25601867Aha, angryboi eh? Wanna fight? lol
STOP! DONT BUY THE TRUCK! STOP STOP STOP! PENIS SIZE!
>>25600377i feel like 3-7k is the floor depending on what you're looking for but that shit gets snatched fast, so it's basically a fulltime job obtaining.
>>25601887No u don't touch faggots. I might get monkeypox
>>25601859tradespeople salaries top out at what a software developer makes in their first couple years.keep coping though, it's probably better for your mental health that you don't face reality
>>25601867>>25601928ya seethe bitchboy?
>>25601466Not as practical as a van, equally unnecessary as a truck for the average person.
>>25600139It's because people are arming up.Conservative talk engages in a constant drum beat of, "Liberals are stopping you from oppressing blacks, Hispanics, and gays? THIS MEANS THEY'RE PERSECUTING YOU!"The conservative base takes this and rolls into: "They're persecuting us? THIS MEANS WE NEED TO KILL THEM ALL TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!"And so they're all buying pickup trucks in order to mow down anyone who isn't a "true conservative."The Republican party's official platform being one of extrajudicial killing towards the supremacy of the dumbest whites is an actual threat to everyone else. When faced with a sea of Trumptards storming capitals and trying to murder people in their pickups, being in a Smart car isn't a very smart idea. You really need a pickup to defend democracy from the Republican horde wielding pickups.
>>25601930>being this much of an ignoramusI know an electrician, a master plumber, and a general contractor that stomp software devs in yearly salaries like it ain't shit. The master plumber I know owns three houses here in Charleston and lists the other two on airb&b. Seeing how this is /o/, it's home to psuedo-intellectual retards like you who talks out of his own ass so i'm not surprised.
kind of want to sell my old f150 because there might not be another time I get what I want for it and I don't really need or use it, but I also dont want to sell it because then if I want one again I'd have to replace it with either a pre di bullshit truck (pre 15 usually) or a brand new one and both are going to be shit in their own ways.
>>25601748Unfortunately nobody truly wins a race. There is always a better competitor, and feeding the competition creates greater risk, and less return. 'When you are finished competing with men, compete with a horse.'
>>25603032Software engineers in the bay make start 150-250k year 0, and it only goes up from there. Landing one of those jobs practically guarantees you'll be a millionaire in 5 years.

>>25603072>in the bay>where a 2bed/1bath condo costs $600knot your best argument
>>25603105What do you make a year?
>>25603107You can earn enough to live in luxury there easily in software engineering, they will lap you in earnings easily. 5 years in one of the big 10 companies there will net you over half a million a year in software engineering.
>>25603108144k salary, 10% of net on everything I haul, 5% of every load I sell that goes on another truck. I spent $2500 on my CDL and then spent about 2 weeks getting paid by my former employee to get trained on these fancy hydraulic steerable german trailers.
>>25603105I remember you from the truck thread couple weeks back. How's the truck?
>>25603139I love it so much, towed the Explorer 950 miles home and got 14+ mpg the whole way and it’s so fucking smooth. can’t feel the 10 speed at all but it hardly ever even needs to downshift anyway. once I got home I took it on a couple trails in western Colorado including Imogene pass and it’s nothing too difficult because I wasn’t trying to smash it up but all of the off-roading tech is really cool too.
>>25600182>Most people in the trades don't need a truck, I can fit most of my tools in my 370z.truth. also true that most blue collar guys are not humble god-fearing modest guys -- they're often ignorant loud mouth hillbillies and they have no intellectual pursuits, so they just booze all day when not on the clock
>>25600278So much seethe in one post kek
>>25602877Dont have a bait image on phone.
>>25603123How many hours a week you work?
>>25603113Even with stock + salary you're not earning 500k there or more unless you have 10 years experience or more. Starting out you're making maybe 200k, then variable from there. But that's if you can ever get it in the first place. You have to either be an Asian that studies leetcode for 18 hours a day or a diversity hire at this point.
>>25601930Eventually the software dev labor pool will be saturated. We’re just in an unprecedented explosion in internet business boosted by QE that is causing these insane valuations for minor tech start ups. The fed has basically turned Silicon Valley into a casino. If you can get any kind of traction behind a business then one of the big boys like Google will buy you for $6 gorillion on insane leverage cause it’s chump change and they just need to stifle competition in other areas. Once there are real interest rates then Amazon, Apple etc have to actually budget for their acquisitions and the capital flooding in contracts by multiple orders of magnitude.
>>25603900depends, it can be 100+ but then I had like 6 weeks off from late March to early may and right now I’m getting ready to go back after a week and a half off because I had weddings to attend both this weekend and last. but while I’m home I’m still usually working on phone calls and e-mails trying to set up loads and help out with dispatch.

>>25603960You retarded niggers said the same thing during the dot com bubble and burst. Software is a unique industry really unlike most others.
>>25602877they won't do shit. they're all fucking larps
>>25604066Are you retarded? No software programmer makes what they did before the burst. WITHOUT adjusting for inflation, an entry level programmer made 200k+ during the bubble anywhere in the country. Now only experienced programmers in high COL areas make that much again, without adjusting for inflation. This was not a unique event, wages fall in big steps rather than gradually when the job market gets saturated. This will only get worse as programmer jobs are among the easiest to outsource over seas.
>>25604200That's a big fat fucking lie. You are literally lying through your teeth right now and I dont know what you gain out of it.
>>25603107It’s more like 950k
>>25604200>outsource over seas.they've been threatening this for 30 years and morans like you believe it.
>>25604066“Learn2code” became a meme only in like 2017. Im a millennial and even in high school in the late 00’s there weren’t classes on coding/algorithms/computer architecture. We had one shitty webdev course where they basically taught HTML and CSS. There was no code academy. All my boomer teachers thought the internet was a weird fad. That’s not true for this next generation. Also this push to incorporate women into the industry will massacre wages. Always does. Every single profession that women enter en masse becomes a low wage, low prestige profession within a generation. Secretary used to be an important job before they started having women do it. You can look at doctors salaries by specialty and without exception the specialties with the most women earn the least amount of money. Why? Cause women don’t work for money. Beta bux provides that. Women work for validation and social status. Employers know this and compensate them accordingly with gold stars and fancy titles and half the money a man would demand for the same job.
>>25604268>Secretary used to be an important job before they started having women do it.?????? office secretary has always been an assistant job. doing menial shit that the boss doesn't want to spend their limited time on like booking flights and shit.
>>25604229>seethes in copeIt's the truth, deal with it.>>25604240What are you on about, they have already done it to most low level programmer jobs in America almost all of them to either India or Korea.
>>25604293No, in the early 20th century secretaries were like they are in the presidential cabinet. Your secretary would be like a right hand man who helps run the business. Only once it became womens work did the role get confined to menial tasks(which are the ones women are capable of).
>>25604351Yes, but this is mostly due to the role of secretary being taken over by the role of the executive(s) in a corporate structure.

>>25603861He's not wrong. My department has been working remote for years before covid so nothing changed at all for us. But after 2020 all the new hires we've had are shit. They have poor work ethic. We had to acknowledge what they expect for work from home recently because of it. Those are the people who will be the first to go when cuts have to be made.

>>25600139They know some dumb fuck out there is really desperate for a truck because of his image or something and will pay a retarded amount of money for it. Also vehicle shortage in general is pushing up used vehicle prices to absolutely disgusting levels and I can't wait for it to crash. With inflation and rapidly climbing gas prices I expect to see truck prices coming down soon, especially the old ones. With everything becoming so expensive it won't make financial sense for most people to spend that kind of money on an old ass truck that gets maybe 13 mpg on a good day. The people who can afford to buy trucks and fuel them aren't buying clapped out 20 year old trucks. I bet a lot of people are going to start selling off their trucks soon especially if they all think they can get top dollar for it which will flood the market.

But usually if the bed is toast, there's something wrong with the frame and plenty of other problems with it too.Otherwise, most pickups getting flatbeds are doing 5th wheel towing, so they tend to be small squares.

Americans--back when gasoline was in the $2 range (or even less) liked big ass SUVs because the soccer moms and office park dadfags who drove them had an illusion of safety, and could toss kids and a bunch of ancillary crap in the back (true also of minivans, but those became unfashionable years ago). As for yuge pickup trucks, a lot of rednecks compensating for their small dicks just love the things.

While I, a "wagie" make six-figures as an HVAC technician installing or servicing their AC units. I'm fuckin' furious over here!But again, whatever helps you cope at night.
>>25609867Vans make the truckold seethe every time.
>>25611602Less room inside for the footprint as a van. Made for karens to larp in.
>>25614952>While I, a "wagie" make six-figures as an HVAC technician installing or servicing their AC unitsYou definitely don't make 6 figures. Even if you pulled that as an independent contractor you aren't taking home even 2/3rds of that after taxes and insurance.
>>25600237Those were some crazy times my fellow west Texas nigger
lads I want to cop one of these (pun intended) but I want to do it when the crash happens, when do you think that'll be?
The market dipped a little last week and I copped a 6k mile Ridgeline for 33000. You gotta be vigilant as fuck right now.
>>25615009>Less room inside for the footprint as a van. Made for karens to larp in.the man makes the car, not the other way around. you should know this, but you dont, thats how I know your a little kid.https://www.insider.com/tour-car-man-chosen-to-live-full-time-2020-11#theres-additional-storage-space-on-top-of-the-truck-in-the-cargo-box-8
>>25615000Trucks makes the vanpedo seethe every time.
>>25615011Whatever helps you sleep at night.
>>25600139I bought a 2003 f-150 extended cab with 4x4 and 140k miles for $3700 in 2020.
>>25608845Am I supposed to tow and float a boat with a van? The only alternative to a truck for that is an SUV but you just struck that one down. Station wagon? A tad too low for the job. The tongue of the trailer will bottom out at the top of the ramp as you try to back down.
>>25601748have you been to europe? plenty of wide freeways just like in america, especially in places like spain and germany, even france. the difference is within their cities the streets are smaller like you said, but get outside those small areas and it is built similar to america in a lot of ways. they just have higher overall driving IQ in europe
>>25614243>especially the millennial roasties who make way too much money to basically chatter all day on zoom meetings talking in circles.Those people will be protected, because they are loyal soldiers for the regime. It's the producers (developers, trades) who will be undercut with cheap foreign labor (even more than currently) and laid off.
>>25600139>Are they inflated everywhere?They will get higher in price if you get a bank loan to pay for it. The Fed has raised interest rates three times so far. The most recent interest rate hike is 75 basis points and takes place this July. The Fed said they plan on having a fourth rate hike in a few months from now and that will be either 50 or 75 points. Anyways, costs of loans will go up. I expect people who have adjustable rate home loans may have to sell their homes if they can't stand the interest rates.
>>25600139Chip shortage is causing a shortage in new cars. There are two dealers in my town that have more used cars than new. There is a ford dealer a couple of towns over that has ZERO new cars and only has nine used cars on their lot. It will be five years or more before prices adjust back down. >>25600143high gas prices wont cause a drop in car prices. A housing crash on the other hand...
>>25614243The kids act like 2008 didn't exist. The economy is and always has been cyclical. Nothing new. I'm tired of the doomsayers and nutters that say "I'ma go off grid in the woods cuz the government is gonna collapse huehuehue!"
>>25600139I bought a 2017 Titan with 10k miles on it last year for $22,500. Look out of state, there are deals out there if you are willing to travel. Id tell you to check out government auctions but used trucks on government auction sites always get up to stupid prices unless you buy a utility truck with a crane or something in the bed.
>>25600145Hey bruh, thanks for giving me a ride home in your shitty enclosed van, you dont mind if I bring my leaking canisters of random chemicals that give off toxic fumes do you?
>>25600144>keeps them out of the hands of tradesmen2 sentences later: >Actual tradies can afford them.You sound like a fucking idiot. Btw, I’m on my 3rd fill up this week. I love my lifted 3/4 ton truck, I like my 35x15’s more
>>25616978how has that been anyway? is that the mulch hauler from other threads
>>25601846You’re retarded and illiterate, shocker.
>>25614168So the obvious answer is for everyone to drive around in 70s land barge sedans
>>25604036cute demon core
>>25600144I'm a tradie and made 235k last year. We have to spend so much on equipment tho so it makes it more like 190k a year. Still getting paid tho.
>>25600144whats with this meme that white collar people are actually poor? is this like some super cope from rednecks? I work an office job and the parking lot is either newer econoboxes for people who don't care about cars, and luxury cars, high end trucks, and sports cars.
>>25600144Plenty of faggot yuppies bought 1 ton diesels for stupid money when diesel was cheap.
>>25600139This is great news for people wanting to trade in their vehicles. Can't wait to get rid of my POS Tacoma
>>25615315This guy gets it. Based and redpilled
>>25607305The cold hard truth. Anyone driving a big vehicle in a city is 100% a pussified bitch.
>>25617119>>keeps them out of the hands of tradesmen/countrymen LARPERS>as in people who larp as bothHow about finishing reading the full sentence, retard.
>>25618243i don't think "rednecks" cope about city folk when it's flooded with niggers burning it down or popping a cap in everyone's asses
>>25600277It's all so tiresome
>>25618243>high end trucksDoes anyone even use the cargo bed at this point? Why not just get an SUV or something.
>>25620299Gotta look tough bro
>>25615000I've never seen a van thread
>>25620299Trucks are luxury vehicles nowBack when I worked at a hardware store I helped load some shit into a shiny white Platinum F150 and the owner was super paranoid about scratching the fucking bed
>>25620365Van threads come in the form of those “van life” threads. It’s for poorfags who are too poor to afford an apartment.
>>25600457I can't think of a better example of what children think being a bad boy is than owning a Harley. My accountant has one, Marty is a total badass. I applaud the jews at Harley Davidson for selling the lie that chinese v twins that can't turn or even go fast in a straight line are the pinnacle of Americana. Boomers at least had the excuse of easy rider, people these days don't even realize that they're living someone else's gay boomer fantasy.
>>25600144based and truthpilled
>>25620503>they're living someone else's gay boomer fantasyPretty sure the same thing can be said about trucks, as evidenced by this thread.
>>25620386>spend 65k+ on truck>dont spend the extra $200 on getting the bed liner sprayed in
The majority of today's truck buyers would be better off getting a wagon.
