    I am in need of a pickup to begin my small business with, strong enough to haul a 6x12 with a 42" rider, a push, and all the other basic equip. I only want to spend $5-8000, and in my area (north Atlanta), I can get a Ford f-150 or Dodge Ram a few years old with 100-120k miles in that price range. I have always wanted a Toyota pickup, but would a V6 Tacoma be adequate for the daily grind of a lco, esp. in the hills here in north GA? Any good suggestions about pickups for a LCO would be appreciated.

    Please no flaming or raving about how Ford sucks and Chevy sucks or anybody with a Calvin and Hobbes sticker on their back window need not reply. TIA.:drinkup:

    The Taco would not be a bad truck. I have a T 100 with the V6 and pull a 6x12 with 3 walk behinds. It will pull it no problem but them I'm not in hill country either. May want to consider a small V8, maybe an older Tundra if you are stuck on Toyota. Just remember the big question, can the Taco stop the trailer??
