Ok, here is the story. I am in need of a new truck. I am driving now a 1998 GMC Sierra 1500. V6 4.3 liter. Not a good engine by any means. I use it to haul my 20 foot open trailer with my 61 inch 27 hp Ferris, and 54 inch 22 hp Simplicity plus other equipment. Want a bigger truck, extended cab, plus more power. I had a relative die (never met him) and leave me $40,000. So that is what I have to spend. I Put 60,000 miles on my old truck in less than 10 monthes so I need something that will last me. Any hints on what you big time guys use for hauling your equipment around that being brand new falls in this category for $, longevity, and power?
