Run 97 f250 4wd and 94 f250 2wd and 82 dodge van. OK the van is my portable storage (sprinkler parts). I would not have anything less than a 3/4 ton. I wouldn't mind a 1 ton if the back tires didn't stick out. Also I think the cab forward trucks are a good idea but I can't see driving the kids to ball practice in one. My work truck is also my personal truck. Both fords have 351's. I am leaning toward a diesel on next purchase but not sure about the noise. I need the power though because of moving Bobcat etc.
