Total cost of truck build spreadsheet

Postby nealinator [OP] » Sep 25 2015, 5:47pm

I am keeping a fairly accurate spreadsheet of all the costs associated with my build. I have color coded it as well to break out the maintenance costs and the add on accessories.

As Imus would say, "What are you; nuts?"

Something like that could possibly be used in a divorce! Not interested in that at all!
Best to keep some things secret.


Just kidding.

I think.

Our marriage is based on trust and full disclosure...but I do get some heat from time to time...haha! She understands this is part hobby and my fun thing so gives me some leeway.

Do this ALL the time.. Not the maintenance part but the build part. I do this for PC builds, when purchasing anything of value with multiple parts/pieces to keep track of. Helps me to do a best price comparo and to haggle if necessary :)

You can say that again. I did that with my main hobby, a quick lazy calculation sent me over $30k+ in firearms/parts.. Not even including spent ammo. :o

I stopped shortly after that and vowed to never total any hobbies again haha

But on a positive note, that did lite a fire under my butt to buy my truck. Because that's what made me start saving/buy one because I remember thinking.. $30k+?! You could have bought your truck already bumb a**! Stop buying more crap and go get your truck!

And now look, a few months later I have my truck :mrgreen:

I don't use a spread sheet per se but always keep every receipt for everything but fuel for each vehicle and offer them to new owner ... as far as the concerns with my wife of 47 plus years it has never been a issue >>> I (we) never have never over extended ourselves financially > if we wanted it and could pay for it we bought it >>>

I decided to make a spreadsheet after buying my truck...figured it would be a neat way to figure "total cost of ownership" and also to keep a maintenance log. I am also planning to keep track of the fill ups and mpgs.
