I have too many vehicles. I keep falling into the trap of buying 1 ton trucks to 'get away' with work bigger trucks should be doing, instead of simply having materials/equipment delivered. I think it's a control issue. Over the years (and many years ago) I learned that 1 ton pick ups just don't pay off, and neither does truck plowing. No matter how much I look at the numbers, and realize it's not good. I STILL do it! for the technical style installs I do, I can simply have machinery delivered and materials. This means I really DON'T need the bigger pick ups. Maintenance, Irrigation, Consulting, Design and Site Management can all be done with a half ton. I used to drive around doing lawn work and training crews with my jeep wrangler (nothing beats pulling a mow trailer with an open air vehicle) But to be honest with you, I just haven't done this since 2010. I'm really considering getting rid of my one tons and my jeep (ARGH!) and getting a nice used Chevy Avalanche, with a nice sunroof it's the ultimate combo of both vehicles. The tonneau cover and roof rack and side boxes serve all my needs perfectly (the combo of business and personal) Ive really grown to like that era of chevy's and the 5.3 engine, even tho Im a ford man. Problem's with this concept: CONTROL!!! I'm simultaneously a versatility meister and a minimalist. These two personality traits are clashing like a bi polar episode. Mileage/Wear and Tear: I would literally put 35-40,000 miles a year on this vehicle If I down sized and had one vehicle that I did everything with: Summer work, winter work, personal travel, snow machining, off roading, camping. Etc. Lack of back ups: If this rig went down or needed major service, I'd have to borrow a crew rig, or my wires rig. LAck of serious snow plow. It's a half ton. there are some plows I could put on it, But I have become accustomed to 9 foot plus plows but I KNOW I should have plows on trucks but what if I need it in a pinch! ARGH!! control!!! Seriously there is no need for the truck plow, I can run loaders, or heavy trucks, or skid steers so much as taking two steps to get into one. But there is something about running around anywhere I want to go, with a plow right there on my rig, Im having a hard time letting go of . Opinions. What should I do? What I know I should do, and my anxiety issues are clashing.
