F250 for plowing and general work, what to get?
Ok guys, this is what i'm looking to do.....
Over the next year or two I plan to finish my Jeep project, money permitting. Currently my main vehicle is a 93 F150 short bed, 4.9liter 5spd 4X4. I like the truck alot, but when I bought it I wanted it as a general purpose truck. This time I'm going for something a little more rugged. I'd like to plow with it, and tow on occasion.
I think my budget will be around $4-6K and I'd like a 92 or newer. Here's what I was thinking - F250 4X4 5spd. Diesel (dunno the diesel engine sizes)
Is this a good idea up here where it gets colder than a witches you know what. I'd be able to plug it in of course. I know diesel run forever, and they've got good power, plus the fuel is cheaper.
Sorry for the long post, I'll cut it off for now, gimme any input you've got because when I get ready I want to buy the best truck I can for what I wanna do with it.
