For now I'll stick with my 08 F150 because it's paid for.
I'm with yeah. I pretty much figured out that you can get a new 3/4 ton if you shop around for the same price as a new 1/2 ton. And you can get a one or two year old one ton with very low miles for the same price as the new 1/2 and 3/4 tons. But still I was able to put my new scan gauge 2 to work a few weeks ago and found that my truck is not hurting at all pulling my mini lite. So the only reason to buy a bigger truck would be to buy a bigger camper and that would move my bank account even more towards empty.
I do see a bigger rig in my future but not till I see some real improvement in the economy. I still don't belive the big media / government spin machine of "everything is just fine now, go back out and bury yourself in debt to keep up with your nieghbours and keep this consumer based economy propped up "
