Spend the money on a FWA Magnum you will be MUCH happier. They wont lose there value either if you take resonable care of them. Its going to cost alot to put autosteer on an older tractor and it won;t bring the value up when you want to trade.
Around here you nobody wants a 2 plus 2.
You can buy them all day long for 10-15k. They can't loosed much more value. Not everybody can or wants to drop 45k on a magnum. We paid 14 for our 3588 with 4 new tires and a new engine it has around 4600hrs on it. Tractor values in that age group have about bottomed out. At least around here.
+2 I am always amazed how many people say get XYZ even though it is 2 or 3X what the OP wanted to spend. Not everyone has the acres to justify these kinds of purchases.
