alright i finaly got the go ahead from the boss lady to buy a new tow rig lol.. now i realy want a diesel to haul my xj, wood ect.
im looking to buy a f250 power stroke, more then likely pre 98. am i over looking a simpler cheaper alternative. i drive 1 hour round trip total to and from work 5-6 days a week and my g/f does 99% of weekend trip driving. im aware of the 30 cent fuel premium and cost of parts ect compared to my half ton chevy, i work and maintain all my own vehicles and know a couple diesel guys if i get in over my head.
also if i play my cards right i can sell my current dd pay the loan off and buy a ricer or gas friendly truck to drive when diesel gets out of hand.
am i over looking somthing about this new truck purchase to where it doesn't make sence? or should i just but a bigger motor half ton and live with it. id like to think i would be towing my xj once or twice a month during the normaly wheeling season, towing would consist of michigan and indiana maybe illinois.
thanks drew....sorry its long winded
