Can my wife take the only vehicle I have and pay for if it is in her namebut she already owns anothercar?

My spouse and Iare talking about a divorce. We’ve bought a truck recently. The truck was puchased for me and my use only. She has owned her own car before we’ve gotten married. I paid for the down payment on the truck by trading in my car. The truck was put in her name due to my credit problems. Now that we are considering divorce she is threatening to take the truck back. Even that she can’t afford it she is telling me she is going to take the truck and her car and trade it in for a new vehicle. If she does this it will jeopordize my job and lifestyle. Can she legally do this?
