Congrats on being free of debt! (on the jeep at least)
give it a couple years.. i made it 2 years outta highschool before i got my charger.. mind you i was making $1200 a week after taxes starting out in a career field that i would of been making $100,000 a year by now, if i hadnt joined the damn marines..

once your outta school and you gotta drive to work everyday and you need a reliable vehicle, and you cant worry about breaking your jeep offroading or keeping your jeep in the garage for weeks/months on end between doing mods.. it felt good knowing i have a backup vehicle thats mine and i dont have to share with my mom like i did with mine and hers 96 xj..

bardb Congrats Now either bank that monthly payment into savings or apply it towards another debt and you'll really make Dave proud.

6InARowMakesItGo i bought my tj about a year ago and financed it for 4 years. so i've still got 3 years officially. i've been making extra payments so i should pay it off in another 2 years.

QFT. The day I paid off my Jeep 18 months early was one of the best feelings I've ever had, but one I intend to never need to have for the rest of my life!

kjeeper10 Paid my 01 off about 5 years ago. I will at some point finance a newer vehicle. After 5 years of a $430 payment I vowed never to buy a new vehicle again. IMO the worst investment ever. Now I gotta decide whether to buy a slightly used jeep or spend more on mine

That sound much better!!
Congrats!!

I bought my '01 Jeep 2 years ago and had a 6 year loan on it. Did that purposely so the payments would be lower and I could afford it even if something happened with my job, which it did as I've been off work for 11 months now with a bad back.

Paid it off 2 months ago already though, so it's all mine!!

At 35 you should be 25% of the way to paying off your house not an 8 year old Jeep. Consider it a lesson learned but don't repeat it.
Please share the golden rule (non-argumentative) in more detail. Life is short, and bliss has intrinsic yet intangible value. Perhaps not to some in accounting, but real life can't be illustrated on an X and Y axis.

All I have to say to Jim is congrats!

doclouie Great job, Dave Ramsey would be proud. There is something about not having debt hanging over your head that makes you feel so much better.

Only Jeep I've ever owned!

AirWick Congrats on paying it off! I paid mine off as well and it feels so damn good to not have a car payment, don't it!?!

You did state in your original post that you had just paid off your loan on your Jeep that you purchased in 2003. That makes it 8 years. Did you refinance the Jeep to make it a 5 year loan?
05-27-2011 03:20 PM
Sherpa Congratulations on paying off the Jeep!

Sadly, I have never paid off any vehicle that I financed. I always change my mind and sell/trade well before the loan period is complete. I intend to change that with my current Jeep, though, and I am planning for it to be the first financed vehicle which I will actually pay off. <fingers crossed>

MikeMTJ You can get 8 year payment plans. I guess it works better for some?

Congrats though!

I thought the same thing (8 years). I pinched pennies for 3.5 years and didn't do or eat anything the last 6 months to pay mine off. I ended saving a couple thousand in interest by paying more per month.

Now that payment you don't have anymore... extra money in the pocket...

*cough* mods *cough*

05-27-2011 02:56 PM
sahara13 I was going to say 8 years of payments!! Did you figure how much you paid in interest those 8 years??
05-27-2011 02:31 PM
DevilDogDoc 4 more payments on mine and it's well, mine!! But dude 8 years of payments? Really?

The Jeep is ALL MINE!

After 17 years... beater cars, sporty cars, stick shifts and automatics... I have my 2003 Jeep Wrangler. Purchased in 2003.

And today, I paid this mutha off!

I've not owned a vehicle outright since I graduated from high school in 1994, and bought a 1990 Chevy Corsica before starting college. It was to be an "economical car," according to my dad. I hated that ugly grey thing with the red interior.

But all is good. At 35 I can say the Jeep is mine. Dave Ramsey, watch out... I hope to be calling you in about two years.


I just needed to brag and share my excitement. Return to normal, boys and girls!

Jim
