I'm looking for guidance on what to get in a truck. This is Chrismastime, and I find myself wanting to order more than I probably need. I'll preface this with I will be hauling a 16' enclosed trailer, and I eligible for Ford 'A' plan and the GM purchase plan. I'm considering a Ford F-250 XLT 4x4 extended cab, with limited slip, cab steps, sliding rear window, off-road pkg (skid plates and a sticker), snow plow pkg, and tow pkg. I have not yet looked at any GM trucks, but have seen enough postings to decide there is plenty of rivalry between the two. I have no idea at this point if I will plow with this truck, and if we even get enough snow to justify it. If I decide now that I will not plow, I can save some $ by going 4x2, which after removing other associated options can save me close to $3000. This will be my primary means of transportation, and it may be part testosterone pushing me to spend more. But at this point, I really don't know if plowing is in my future, and if I choose 4x2, it probably won't be. P.S. On top of all of this, I have to sell any plan to the wife, who wants me to buy a used F150. Any advice is most appreciated.
