I'm torn between:
89 Ford 1 ton dump $2600 needs work
92 Chevy 1 ton dump $7900 ready to work

Both diesel -- ar ar ar


Go with the Ford, and call me in 20 years when you're looking to trade up!

I just bought a new 2003 F-250 new years eve. I paid alot less than I should have but i purchased it through a family member. However, I have never owned a diesel til this one. Man what a difference in power. I have a few friends who say they like their gas burners but I have had both now and ther is NO comparison in power.

My opinion....... Get a deisel and never look back. The Ford F-250 is a proven power plant and you see 3 x as many on the road than the competition..... For a good reason.

My .02

2005 F250 4x4

You can put yor order in in July for the 2005 f250. They are coming out here in Texas in Sept. The outside will be changed up to look more like the f150 now and the inside will pretty much stay the same. I talked to the rep. for the Texas area today.

Thanks Trent

If you would like to get some prices on what you can expect to pay for a new truck their are several sites worth checking out. Here is one that I would check out before I went and priced a truck at the dealer.
www.carsdirect.com
You can select the options and get the price there even buy it from them.

Trucks

In my opinion, unless you are going to use this truck for personal use as well as work...the one ton stake is the best way to go. They are versatile and will carry a good sized load of mulch while it pulls another one. It lets you accomplish more than one job at a time. Good example...I had 10 properties to mow Thursday, the last was a HOA common ground where the entrance needed a clean up and mulch. While pulling a trailer full of mowers, got 3 yards of mulch mid-day when closest to it and when I got to the HOA, was able to do it all without making a trip just for mulch and clean up. You can also combine other jobs because of the extra room it gives you to carry limbs, etc...
