We use Isuzu diesel box trucks for carring tools and welders, a 2000 dodge 2500 that has been more trouble than I ever could have imagined. 5 (yes 5) trans, 2 moters 2 rears,? front brake roters, I think I do one with each oil change(kidding) broken ac/drivers side power window
For pretty and pulling the skid steer, steel, etc. We have a 08 f250 diesel Back to Fords luv em

Re: What Kind Of Truck Do You Drive?


01 F150 - 5.4L V-8, w/124,000+ miles. Pulling a 7 x 16 Enclosed Trailer, fully loaded with all of my tools. Gas mileage sucks when empty or pulling. It gets the job done, and has not rust. I have been looking for a used 08 F250 V-10, but can't find one that meets my criteria. So, I will continue to run the F150, plus there is no truck payment each month.

Prefer to put my money into my tools, to expand my business.

How long did you do the loan over? That's a long long time for a truck payment.

Re: What Kind Of Truck Do You Drive?


Well mines not as classy as everybody else's, but what can I say, Its hard to kill a Ford.

I have had several fords over the years, and I rarely have to work on them much.

She might be older, but its only got 107K right now, and runs like a top.

I'm due for an upgrade, but until this one pukes, I am going to keep working it.

Another great thing about this old girl is, she doesn't leak one drop of oil.
I like knowing I can park in a customers drive without issues.
(i better knock on some wood now)

Besides, I like knowing I can scratch it, and not get upset.

I really hope to get a couple more years out of this truck, but I would settle for at least one more.
I do have to get front tires before winter, or
