contractors who buy light duty trucks get what they deserve.
Buy medium duty trucks, be happier, and more productive.
Used to be that light duty was so much cheaper that it made it attractive to beat on and dispose.
That hasn't been true for a while, In some cases the medium duty are even cheaper, because they dont come dripping with creature comforts.
Like GM? buy a 4500
Like Ford? buy a 450 or 550.
Izusu/mitsubishi for most guys in the biz however, is the smartest purchase they will ever make.
