    Well today I went and bought a new truck cause mine was totaled after I got into a accident 3 weeks ago. I couldn't tell you how many trucks I went and test drove and out of all of them this one seemed the nicest to me. I am very picky at what I buy and want it to have everything I want in it or I won't even bother looking at it. I went and looked at some a couple hundred miles away that were cheaper but they were beat up and wasn't worth me paying for it. Well here is the verdict, I bought a 2001 Ford F-250. Below is a picture of it at the dealer lot off their website, I will take more pictures of it Thursday night or Friday morning when I go to pick it up. I drove it and it performed pretty well. My dads company uses the same trucks with boss 8'2" vee plows on them and they seem to push the plow pretty well. No snow plow for me this year since this wiped out my bank account, but next season she will have a new boss 8'2" vee plow on the front and a sno-way 9cuft salt spreader in the back:weightlifter: .

    the interior of the truck. I love having vinyl floors, I won't ever go back to to carpet cause my guys spill pop and coffee all over the floor and never tell me so that is why I love the vinyl floors just wipe them down and don't worry about it. And also it has a bigger center arm rest with storage in it.

    Ive got a 2000 F250 and i love it! Great choice you wont be sorry! Congrats! i agree, vinyl is the only way to go! Its also great in the winter when your getting in and out of the trucks with wet snowy salty feet... Its a lot easyer to clean up.
