So may I be so bold as to return to my original topic?
Is the general consensus that a 4 cyl will be under-powered for even this little of a job?
Which of the 6 cyl (I6 and v6) seem to be the best for this, providing I find one in good shape?
The ranger- 3.0, 4.0 (manual or auto)
S10- 2.5, 2.8, 4.2 (manual or auto)
F150- 4.9 I6 (manual or auto) or v8???
any other truck suggestions?
As I said, I will certainly re-investigate quotes for renting trucks. if it is as clear and obvious of a decision as disorder shows it to be (which I dont believe it is), I will rent one for $400, no questions asked. When that doesn't include gas, (why would it)? and thus puts me back up to ~$700, I think I'll still want to stick with driving down there myself.
