To me a diesel is how a truck should sound love that shit.... same with a Harley, I like bikes but damn a Harley just sounds a certain way that how can you not want one
I love the sound of a diesel...especially the way the 7.3 Powerstroke used to sound, and the Pre 2008 5,9 Cummins
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
If you don't mind spending the money, look at the Sterling.
My 7.3 still sounds like that.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Ahh I see. If you want to put a plow on it you'd want a 250 or 2500. Plowing wreaks havock on your truck if you do it a lot but not if you just occasionally plow your driveway.
I know a few years ago when I priced a plow and a good salter... I wanna say they were Meyer brand I think... overall it was about 6 grand but a good winter cuts into that quick if you work your ass off... I like toys, the idea is to get the truck, play with the plow and get paid and eventually get a nice bass boat... then Im set! haha
If you break even on the money made plowing and the cost of repairs and extra maintenance due to said plowing consider yourself lucky. If you want to plow buy the cheapest 4x4 you can find because you will ruin it quickly
I trade every year and get the same truck. Chevy silverado 4x4 extended cab. Haven't had any problems with them.
Such a beast engine
I have a 2002 Silverado regular cab
Pretty much this. There's a reason people usually plow with old trucks unless they're part of a very wealthy landscaping company.
My cousin plows a few lots and my buddy's dad owns a landscaping company (not one of the very wealthy ones, but still does well). Here is what I have been told:
If you plan on doing a lot of plowing with a newer truck you will probably be dissapointed because it seems like fun and not a big deal, but believe me the gas and repair bills add up real quick and if something breaks (which it will) then you have to explain to whomever you plow for what happened and they'll probably be pissed.
Whatever you decide, Chevy/gmc over ford. Have 2009 Sierra 1500 crew cab and no issues whatsoever. Can't say that about some of my friends and their fords.

Good stuff guys, thanks for the input!
wonder what has the better resale value... trucks dont depreciate all that bad from what I have heard..... I woulda planned to keep this one longer but its costing me too much in repairs and I really want 4 wheel, feel like my truck isnt a truck with out it.
