    if you were given $60,000 for a brand new Diesel 4x4 truck, which would it be and why?
    srw or dually?
    6.7 powerstroke?
    6.7 cummins?
    6.6 duramax?
    This would be a work truck from lawn maintenance and hardscaping.
    You would be hauling heavy equipment at times also.

    I would never spend $60k on a work truck. You don't need a decked out truck fo work. Just get a plain work truck diesel. I bought my ford f250xl psd new for $30k. I know guys that have bought king ranches for less than $45k. I'd go ford or chevy. Better built trucks than dodge IMO.

    6.6 duramax/allison

    This would be a work and daily driver truck so would like to have leather and power windows and locks. I put the price 60k just as a start price but you can talk down any dealers below invoice.

    Have you gotten more equipment than is in your sig? You dont need even close to that much truck with whats listed in your sig. Maybe you have more but why buy a brand new truck unless you are just the rich boss?

    Sorry, I really didn't answer the question that was asked!

    If I was a lottery winner!! I think I would go Chevy...and that is really because I have had pretty good luck with the local dealer, Quality wise I think it's a toss up, you could get a really good truck or a really bad truck, with any of them.
