Coastal,
What will you pull with this setup? I've been thinking about a new truck with a V-6 but wondered how it would pull my equipment. Like to cut my fuel bill if I could.

I have to admit, I had my doubts. But it not only pulls the 6 X 12 it will also pull the 7 X 16 tandem trailer with ease. What I like most about the truck is the furl mileage. I keep asking when it needs gas and they look at me and tell me it is still full. It is awesome. In fact two employees went out and bought one this week.

Yeah I have an 03 chevy worktruck and love it

I bought after high school for $15,400 4.3 vortec will pull a lot and gets great millage I use it for running around town. That 4.3 is a great little engine same as the legendary small block 350 with 2 less cylinders.
