I have been searching for a truck that will be compatible with my new 12' 1400# GVW Dump trailer. I decided to go with an f-450 or 550 because I think the one ton will be too small after a little while. I found these two trucks and I am trying to figure out the best option. Let me know what you think and which one is the better bang for the buck. If they both seem too exspensive let me know.
