    I know nothing about trucks and I need to start learning some stuff about them. I want to spend around 10 thousand for a used truck. I have no brand preference. Right now I just tow my equipment with a GMC Envoy and it seems to have plenty of power. Im starting to haul more mulch and rocks for landscaping jobs. What do you guys recomend? Anyhelp would be appreciated.

    i'd say if you're hauling big mulch jobs and rocks around frequently, or even a big trailer+ equipment then go for the diesel. I've been looking at a 95 Ford F350 with the powerstroke diesel. 1 ton chassis truck that gets 18-21mpg. The price ($12.9k w/ plow) is hard to justify for me right now, but i think i'd save myself the $$ difference in fuel economy versus getting a f350 with a v8/10.
