Eventually I will be looking to replace my Ranger with something that is a bit more towing capable. With the 900 lb trailer, and the 1100 lb mower and a few other odds and ends totaling no more then 2500 lbs of trailer weight...it falls flat on its face above 50 mph. If you are familiar with interstate driving around here, if your going 50 you are going to get run over. Also with this trailer I am getting less then 15 mpg towing. Right now I wish I still had that F250 around. The Ranger has been a good truck. Put 100,000 miles on it and its sure been used and abused, and asks for more. So I am thinking of saving up and getting another used F250. Maybe a little newer then a 1986 but not real set on that. I do want one that is a auto this time around and I dont really need 4x4. Air conditioning is almost a requirement tho. I want diesel. Not gas. I thought about trading in towards a new one. But then decided against it. I dont like how the new diesels are being chocked down with all the new smog stuff. That and I am leery of the new engine Ford has. What do you guys think?
