    Number 1.

    1995 F-150 4x4 EXT. Cab 5.8l
    67,000 miles, Loaded, Taken Care of, looks good

    1994 GMC 2500HD Reg cab long bed. 6.0l V8
    189,000 miles Basic work package, Beat to crap

    1998 Chevy k1500 ext cab short bed. 5.7 V8
    90,000 Miles, Loaded. Clean.

    1995 Ford F-250 Rec Cab Short bed. 5.4 V8

    Keep in mind, You will be putting a 7' 6" plow on the front and towing a 14ft enclosed.

    Not number one or number four. If i were u i'd get the K1500, or the GMC 2500 but it stated that it was beat to crap so id get the 1500. -Mitch-

    That is what I'm leaning towards. A nice Silverado K1500.

    I would not buy the regular cabs after having an extended. The extra room is real nice, especially when the truck is your office.

    I would get either 1 or 3. However, if you are putting a plow on it, I understand (I do not plow) that the IFS is not the best with a plow, so that lends over the 1, the F-150. I do not think you can really go wrong with either truck. But 1 & 3 would be my choices.

    If number 3 is 4x4, I would get it. If not, number one. I really like the Chevy's, and you cant beat the 350 V8.

    Try finding a 1999 or newer Chevy. BIG BIG BIG differences between a 1998 and a 1999.... better frame, better engines, better body, better interior, etc

    None I would keep looking,lol seriously, I would keep looking. If I had to buy one of these I would go for the 95 F150 (too bad its an ext. cab though)

    Exactly what is this?

    They didn't make 2500HD's in '94
    They didn't make a 6.0l V8 in '94

    But the low price of $5500 suggests it IS a '94

    So, your saying the 1998 chevy 1500 would be a worse plow truck then say, a 2000 chevy 1500?

    I have heard the exact opposite.
