    for 10k you could have bought an f250 or 350 easy... just not get ripped off by a dealer. I guess to each his own but be ready to replace lots of brakes and wear your tranny out if you tow anything. not to mention the lack of bed capacity.:hammerhead:

    You could buy a really nice mid-'90s Chevy 2500 or 3500 for under 10k. You'd have more power, cheaper repairs, better to tow with, and a more practical truck.

    If that was a personal vehicle that you weren't going to use for work, then I'd pat you on the back. I don't really care for that truck, but if you pay for it yourself, then you earn my respect.

    But if you're going to use that truck for landscaping work...good luck.

    You put 450 miles on in 3 months? Holy crap, was that like 1 tank of fuel? No wonder you like that truck. I'd like any truck where 1-2 fillups would last me 3 months. Except I go like 1000 miles a month in my truck!! :laugh::laugh:
