View Full Version : I need a new truck

07-21-2007, 02:16 PM
Two weeks ago my truck was parked out in front of my house and a 17 year old kid lost control and ran into my truck and totaled it. I had a 97 chevy blazer s-10 style. I am looking for a full size truck now. I pull a 6x12 enclosed trailer and I was wondering if a small v8 in a reg size ford or chevy or should I look for the larger v8. Also do you think a v6 in one of the trucks would work.

I have a 7x18 Enclosed trailer with a ZTR and 2 walk behinds and i tow it fine with my silverado 1500. It only has the 4.8 in it but it tows like a champ. Wont win any land speed records but it gets the job done

I've towed tons of mulch and stone with my 1500 sierra. It has always been good to me. I have the 5.3, but there are times when I would like more power under the hood. However, I'm pulling a 6x20, for a 6x12 you should be fine
