I know... all half tons are crap...they cant tow...buy a diesel...lol Im running my old mans dodge ram 1500 4.7 right now, but since Ill be out of high school and mowing full time this spring im going to need to buy my own truck. I work solo and I only use a 12x6 open trailer w/ a 36", a 52", and a couple 21" walk behinds. I see no need to spend alot of money buying a bigger truck when im not towing around that much of equipment. Plus ill be using it as a personal truck as well. I have heard bad things about the dodges although I have never experienced any problems with my dads ('02 57,000 miles.) I was looking at the ford f-150s and they seemed to have plenty of towing power especially w/ the 5.4 liter engine. Im probably going to buy a new or slightly used totally stripped down truck(2wd, no air, ect to save money.) All I want is a clean, proffesional looking vehicle that will tow. Anyone here have experience w/ the '08 f-150 yet?
