My buddies dad wants us to drive down to Florida from Ohio to pick up a boat he just bought. We have two truck options; mine which is a 1999 Silverado 2500 6.0 with a brake controler and his a 2003 Ford Ranger 4.0 with no brake control. The boat weighs approx 4800 lbs. With gas prices we arent sure which truck would be better or if the ranger could even handle it. Thanks!
