    You kill me lmao Lightning. Totally necessary oh man you are a classic.Why don't you check out one of those escalades that you can convert to a pick up.Through a load mulch in it and get to work.

    If you're talking about a work truck, neither. Get a $10,000 to $15,000 USED 3/4 ton pick up truck with 8' bed.

    If it's just for personal use, still neither! I'd get a nice clean used F-150 for $10,000 to $12,000, and then spend the difference on a quad, some new equipment, etc.

    Get your freaking priorities straight. Get a decent truck and get rid of the craftsman equipment! You just kill me man. How do you afford a 35,000 truck when you are running crafsman equipment.

    Could not agree more
    Get rid of all the flash you at this point need a 1/2 ton lets say 99-2002 standard cab reg or long box.2 wheel drive that is it. Spend the rest on good commercial equipment.Honda 21" hydro,Shin,shil.red max power euip you know what i mean.
    Do this for a few years then start thinking trailer and all that other stuff.

    You dont want to get to fancy with the truck it should be relaible and you should not be scared of scraching it. Sounds like you got a lot of money to spend that does not mean you should spend it unwisely.

    Hope this came across right I am trying hare not to be a smart a$$ this time.

    Get that dodge dually diesel on ebay. That's one hell of a truck for the price. Then save the rest for a little personal car and ins.
