And what truck's value hasn't tanked the second they drove it off the lot? It's not a matter of loosing money, just how much. Whether you're lifting or slamming, you ain't gettin' your $ back. They're a hobby or passion, not an investment. If you want to minimize your loses don't spend a dime and ride bone stock...looks killer to me, but I know the value just went out the window, probably not worth what a stock Z71 is worth now.
