    We drive about 20-25k miles a year but its spread out over 4 trucks soon to be 3. We just remade our area for my web side with Google maps my 200 accounts are in an area of just 29.7 sq miles and I am in the center so we only drive 5-6 miles in any one direction for typical work related driving.

    What should I upgrade on the truck, also what should I plan to do to make the truck great? What should I look for when I checkout a truck?

    What do you mean as far as upgrades?

    On a used truck look for what type of life it has had. Check fluids, wear items as well as any service records to start.

    Keep up on maintenance is the absolute best thing you can do for any vehicle.

    I think that Dodge is over rated and over priced. The Chevy will hold up much better. I still agree on purchasing a cheaper work truck since it will just get beat...
