    I know that mit has a pretty nice body-over truck. You can get it in the 4 cylinder desiel with 4 wheel drive. Its a powerful truck and has a lot of weight capacity. Its also great for plowing. Last winter we got 4 feet of heavy snow and it was one of the only trucks that could push it besides a front end loader.

    I bought a 2012 Ford F350, FX4, dully, 6.7. I pull a 24' Enclosed trailer that has two Exmark Lazer Z and a Bad Boy in it and i am getting 14 mpg. I had a 2009 F350 that was getting around 8, but that was a 6.4. When i am not pulling this trailer i am getting 19 mpg. Ford with the new 6.7 is the way to go.
