I would go with the 4.10 for pulling a trailer and for plowing especially if you are going with the 5.4. With a set of 3.73's you will have to have your foot in it a little more to accelerate with a load.

Man this rain sucks, I have about 30 to go. Definately taking a little longer.

Im still behind the same 5 from Thursdays cuts. Friday is usually a makeup day and misc. jobs, so no more scheduled cuts are behind yet, but I was supposed to do an overseed and a dethatching today also, so those are behind now. And I had a job lined up for Saturday, tilling out a garden, but thats not looking good either. Sunday being Mother's Day I aint gonna get anything done even if the weather is good.

I was trying to stay brand impartial, but personally I like Chevy's too. I got 2 Chevy mechanic buddies that take care of all my repairs dirt cheap.

I wouldn't touch them. No where to park near campus, you gotta deal with the dumbass students that walk through your workzone and make things hard, pick up a ton of trash at each property since the same dumbass students don't understand garbage cans, not to mention most have screwed up properties you can't use a big mower on (gates, etc), and screwed up lawns as well, and about a million other hassels as well. I turn that stuff down all the time, don't go near campus or student housing.

I wish the rain would go away. Can't work in it, lawns have standing water as it is. We needed the rain, but not a monsoon.
