How in the world can we help you out, with the info you have provided?
Do you want gas or Diesel? A work truck? A truck to do light - medium - heavy towing? Are you looking for looks or ruggedness? Is MPG important? Is insurance premiums important? Are you paying cash or financing? Do you have a budget or a purchase cap? 4WD-2WD-AWD?
Lots of information missing. Hell I say get a Hummer!
Once you go through your choices and options, better than asking us, you might want to consider going to Consumers Reports and see what they say about your choices.
Personally, I have no idea what you would have us on the board do for you. Help us out a bit!
it's got to be gas
it needs to be tough and i might use it for work
i need it to do some light to medium towing
it should have somewhat good mpg
insurance premium don't matter my parents will help out on that (they always have)
financing would be nice
$50 000 buget cap
get a mid 80's Chev 1/2 ton. carburated 350, turbo 350 trans, 10-bolt rear/front ends. CANT KILL EM' and if ya do, parts are like candy, and they are easy to work on... unlike todays technology crap [xx(]
Ive got 150,000+ miles on my F-150 (4x4, regular cab, longbed, 5.4L V8). It hasnt cost me much in repair costs and it still pulls 17 mpg on the highway.
Its always been my experience that Fords get the best MPG of all the brands and have the best lowend torque. My friends who have fullsize 4x4 Chevies get about 14 mpg highway and the people I know with fullsize 4x4 Dodges only get about 12 mpg highway.
Toyotas are nice and are assembled here in the USA, but at the end of the day the money still goes to a foreign company.
Ive had some issues with my F-150, but nothing major and to be honest, if I had to go buy a different truck tomorrow it would most likely be another F-150.
i just bought a 2000 chevy 1500 4x4 and i love it to death. I traded my ol 95 blazer in on it. The milage is about the same too i couldnt believe that but i dont drive the pickup near as hard as i did the blazer. My cousin who is a gm mechanic said theres no real notorious problems with those trucks other than the reverse drum???.
