I once had a 4cyl 5 speed s10. Could get 402 miles to a tank in city driving. Compare that to my 100ish miles on my jeep
pre-2006 puts you before all the diesel emissions ruined the engines. I give this a thumbs ups!THE THREAD CONTINUES...
Im still looking for a truck. The requirements are nearly the same as before, but the current list is as follows:
Ford or Dodge preferred, squarebody Chevy considered.
-3/4ton or greater
-strongly hoping for a manual transmission
-must be able to handle a 15hr trip with no issues or concerns
-utility bed is preferred but not required
-must be able to tow a trailer loaded with a Jeep!
If anyone knows about one for sale within a state or two of Iowa Id be curious to see some info.
But really I just want to hear your thoughts on a similar truck or if Im looking at the wrong things. Tell me what Im forgetting or missing.
Not trailer shopping yet, but it'll probably be a bumper pull because I'll want a smaller one that fits the jeep but also the lawn tractor. I dont need a big one....yet.pre-2006 puts you before all the diesel emissions ruined the engines. I give this a thumbs ups!
Fords early power stroke is one of the best pickup engines out there. LOTS of options for more power! The 5.9 cummins in the dodge is a solid choice. I have heard about the duramax in the chevy, but only know of 1 guy with one. and that's not a square body.
I assume you want a single rear wheel and not dully. Or are you looking for a serious tow-rig?
Utility bed may be a tougher find.
I would recommend a gooseneck trailer at the minimum. hitch pulls work but the gooseneck is far more stable when hauling a loaded trailer.
4x4 is a given!
