    Other than a dump truck, what would you guys say is the best truck to use, I currently have a Ford F-150 and I feel like it does just enough, I am looking to buy a new truck so any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

    Get at least a 3/4 ton, preferably 4x4 if you want to plow with it. I prefer regular cab longbed.

    This all depends on what you are hauling and where you are going. Why pay a 4x4 to tow a trailer around constantly and why buy a 3/4 ton or 1 ton when you hardly haul?
    You have to make the decision on what you are going to use it for and then look at what is available.
    If you haul a lot and heavy equiptment go diesel and 1ton. If you haul a 6x10 trailer loaded weight of maybe 3000lbs then the f-150 is fine.
    Ask a semi drive why he doesn't have a toyota to pull his trailer.
    Then ask yourself what you need.
