    I say go with the Ford. It looks like it is in much better shape and higher mileage isn't as big a deal. That Dodge looks like it was pretty much used exclusively as a plow truck judging from the rust on the truck and the low mileage. Someone used the Ford, but definitely kept up with the maintenance on it, that thing looks CLEAN!!! I don't know what to tell you about the 4x4 vs. 4x2. I guess that depends on much you think you need it.

    the only worry is plowing but if i have 2 tons of sand salt mix in the sander then i think it will push a house over well im hoping anyway lol
