Thought I would start a new thread about our needs for vehicles, instead of thread jacking the another one even more. Since my company is all service, no installs, no landscaping, no snow plowing, my needs are different than some. I have done primarily all service since '95, with a handful of installs each year up until 2002. So I know what we need and what we don't need to carry. Rarely am I missing something because we couldn't carry it. It's either my fault for not knowing I was out, forgot to pick something up at supplier, etc. Occasionally we have to run for oddball things that we rarely see - Watts and Wilkins products, larger commercial products, or the controller that a homeowner will pay more for to try and match what they had. My needs right now are to get a smaller two wheel drive for my fulltime tech, and for (hopefully) another tech that I may have this year. Maybe a third one for me as I put a lot of miles on each year. I'm looking at S10 or Ranger type trucks to cut my fuel bills. Hopefully 4 cyl., maybe 6 cyl. We will still have at least two 1/2 ton trucks - mine and one of the other two we currently own, which are both 4wd. A van would be nice, but once again, cutting fuel bills is key for me. Only drawback is for pulling compressors in fall. We will have the two 1/2 tons, but that means possibly someone besides me will drive my nice truck for 6-8 weeks. But when I had my '87 Toyota I pulled around a 185 with my 4 cylinders for two seasons before I traded for a 1/2 ton. I am thinking of a truck mount compressor if we get a third, which a less experience guy could use. Especially if they haven't towed much. So what are your preferences, or what do you like or dislike about your rigs now? I know install and plow guys need more than I do.
