    Thanfully since I just started back into this biz again in a different area, I needed a trailer. I bought aluminum. Almost half the weight. Only Jeep liberty I thought would save gas burns alot. Without trailer I only get 15-16 in warmer weather, 13-14 cold. Haven't calculated towing trailer, don't want to.

    Next year a company from India will be importing to us a new kind of truck. Its kind of box shaped work purpose truck. It look like it fall into the half ton range and the best part of all it has a I-4 turbo diesel that gets 25+mpg. Its priced in the lower $20,000 range. Its called Mahindra.
