    Oh okay. The old pre-'96 TBI engines weren't as good on gas as the EFI engines which started in '96. You probably also have 3.73 gears which are better on gas until you have a load. The 4.10's will keep me right about 10-11 unless I have a couple ton of rocks or trees on my trailer.

    Thanks! lol. Yeah I gotta go get 2 hitches to keep in this truck there is a 2 inch drop on there now but thats the hitch I use for my blue truck. Yeah the blue truck will stay around for a little while-way better on gas so its nice to use sometimes plus it wont get beat on as much now. I dunno it was my firt truck so it would be tough to get rid of but I will see what happens down the road.

    As for gas mileage yeah it sucks. But its a work truck. If I just have to do runnign around I will use the blue truck. I think with this past week- had a trailer on about 50% of the time-it seemed to be getting 8-9mpg. gotta fill her up at the end of tommorrow

    yeah they are a bunch of idiots. I need to just start up a mower shop and deal wrights. I am sure I would get tons of business since all the wright owners in this area are unhappy with dealer support!

    I would keep the half ton if I were you. Its just fine for pulling your mowers around and you can use the 3/4 for the bigger jobs that require hevier loads. I bet that half ton is rated to tow 4500-5000 pounds. Your mowing setup does not weigh that much, so your not beating on it. Plowing with it maybe, just take it easy. I like that blue color. You could also use the half ton as a strict personal truck and a backup truck. That way you drive the half to school and come home and the 3/4 is already loaded and ready to go. Even though loading only takes ten minutes, it sucks to do it everyday, it gets old.

    yeah I will still plow with it might still use it for mowing unless I get a bigger trailer. white one is really nice for the dump trailer and anything else heavy. I would love to keep everything hooked up to the white truck so its always ready to go but I gotta find a shop first there is no enough room at our house to always leave it loaded up and hooked up
