Please be honest and hopefully this will remain anonymous. Just wondering if anybody does this and asking for a friend.

If you start going down that path of lieing or low-balling....what else are you gonna do in the future. Just my 2 cents.

I frame it as my truck is my hobby (expensive and I don’t have that many mods yet) but it’s my me-time and my wife respects that.

If she doesn't ask, then i keep it to myself! If she asks then i tell her after she has had a nice glass or 2 of her favorite Wine ( I keep on hand just for these special occasions)o_O

for the most part we have been a team in building both our trucks, that being said we have never really discussed the cost of my King Suspension. She never asked how much, I and i never really put a number on it.

My wife is our accountant. I can't sneak a $20 bottle of booze into the shopping cart without her knowing.

That being said, I do keep my own separate cash stash for toys. Anything I sell or earn as a result of my truck/guns/cigars/etc. stays in that stash permanently unless there's some kind of emergency where I need to spring a little extra cash for something unrelated. In general, I do pretty well. When it's something crazy expensive like almost $5k in suspension and tires, then obviously I need to go plead my case to the boss.

Other option is get sponsored OR do reviews to get free stuff to try out. Not familiar with that process but I know people do it.

I’ll say a part is a little cheaper than it actually is, until I buy it then she sees how much it actually is lol. But she already caught on to the pattern since we’ve been together forever. So she knows what’s up already.
