Older trucks are the way to go. Generally easier to maintain, and no monthly payments. A lot less electronics and computer stuff that will, at some point, fail.
I am using a 1993, Chevy Kodiak, to haul in the wood for my firewood business. It is easy to work on, and paid for.
Also have an 12 year old Dodge 3500 diesel, for firewood deliveries. Again, easy to work on, and paid for. No more $35,000 - $50,000 trucks for me, when the old iron will get the job done.
