I think these are in fact some good questions. I do have a full-time job and yes, I would have the need for some kind of vehicle. I traded in a 2007 Lincoln MKX for this 4x4 Ford. I figured I could put the truck to some better use instead of the Lincoln MKX. It was a nice ride but I could not plow snow and I really didn't want to pull a trailer with a Lincoln. Anyways, I upgraded from a 42 " Toro so that I could do my own leaf pickup in the fall. This saves me 350.00 a year alone (about 2 mower payments). I figured that starting a lawn care business would help me with tax benifits also. I was going to have to purchase a trailer anyways for a couple of off road toy's so the trailer, the mower and a good part of my truck will be a good tax benifit for the next 5 years. I am glad that I purchased the new equipment and if I did not think I could make enough money to pay for it all, I probably would still be driving a Lincoln MKX and paying someone else to do my fall leaf pick up. But I am not, I am mowing, plowing and
. Thanks for asking the questions. Nobody seemed to ask earlier so I just didn't feel a need to reply to many of the above rants. Chad
