    Nice looking rig. I dont think the red/yellow color combo on the trailer goes well together, maybe its the pics though.

    What kind of gas milage do you get on that ford?

    well take a look at the dakota ;) the dakota used to pull the trailer, and i wanted the trailer to match my dakota ;) but now that im selling the trailer, no need in putting any money/effort into it unless its driving somewhere to sell it.

    milage on the ford...... 8mpg (costs $60 +- to fill up). but then again i only have to drive it about 40 miles a week when doing lawns. but tommarow im putting new plugs, air filter, and some other stuff on it to gain some extra mpg if possible.

    8 mpg... :dizzy: :eek: :( I was thinking about the F-150, but I don't think I can afford it at 8 mpg at over $2/gallon for gas. Looks like i'm going to have to find a diesel. ;)

    i sure would, but that means.... heavier front end, which leads to sometimes not being able to put a bigger plow on it! but then again i could be wrong. next truck i get i really want to get a diesel. my dakota only gets 11mpg.

    well i said farewell to the dixie and 5x10 trailer. Its going to be weird tommarow towing a 16ft trailer without the dixie.

    Mark, there is no way you are getting 8mpg on that truck. If you are, there is something wrong with it. I have a '97 F-150 and i get 15-16 without a trailer, and 14-15 with the enclosed trailer.
