    Currently, I am in a 2001 Chevy Express van. I have had this for just over a year. I downsized from a longer one ton van. I only miss the extended van about once a month. I am pretty good about knowing what I need, and getting it in the truck each day. We do mostly bigger jobs, so a lot of equipment is stored on site.

    2012 f150 sxt. i got it back in april. its been great so far.. it sucks making payments again as my last truck was paid off for 3 years.. had to get rid of it for two reasons… wasnt big enough to carry my gear and the list of things that needed repairs was getting too big to stay on top of

    dont have a truck yet. but mine would be an F-250 with suicide doors. i would definitely have a cap. and probabl invest in a trailer thats enclosed.

    1985 Doge 100 pickup , and a 2003 Astro Van (217000 mi and still going). Pick up is a dedicated work truck. Van can’t be set up permanently. Youngest son plays sled hockey and now we pick up a 2nd grade girl that lost a leg when she was a baby because her mom is never home and older sister has full time nurses. But she is cute little thing that is so excited about this it’s unreal. So it is more of a dedicated hockey van

    I posted some pictures other places so you all probably knew I traded in my utility bed truck. Was kinda sad t see it go but I feel this suits me even better.

    That is one sweet set up. Is that an A.R.E. cap

    forget that, fast look and thought the cap was on yours. Or maybe I was dreaming of having yours with an ARE cap

    That looks like a great setup. Shouldn’t have any shortage on space or hauling power with that.

    I think if I was to get a dedicated work vehicle again I would get a cargo van. I usually rent an extended length cargo van when I need more space than the car gives me. After having a couple trucks I think the van would be the better way to go for me.

    Almost go tone last summer. Can’t wait to get a van. Around here the 3/4 and 1 ton that have over 100,000 start getting pretty reasonable. Yet it seem like you can put some serious miles on one with decent maintenance n

    I bought my last one ton van with 108k on it. I drove it for ten years, never touching the engine or tranny. Sold it last year with 280k. The motor still ran like new, but the tranny was starting to slip a little.

    Have got a F350 and trailer for deck work, and have a short bed chevy 4×4 for a plow truck.

    Is that a thing? I don’t recall ever seeing suicide doors on an F250…maybe before they started making full sized doors?

    I’m holding out for a Tundra myself!

    Originally I was looking for a truck that could fit a 4×8 in bed, but then I coudn’t fit two cars in the driveway so I opted for the smallest truck I could find; the Ford Ranger. I wanted a Mazda B2300 but couldnt find a used one. If money was no issue I’d like a Tundra, those things are awesome.

    So how you link the Ford Ranger, what year and miles do you have on if. So far are you happy with it.

    I like the new Gmc Canyon would work for me, 4 door 4×4. I have read good things about it so far.

    I got a 2004 Edge w// flared wheel wells so it makes my bed even smaller, LOL. But I like the way it looks, and is good on gss mileage; but coming from a Civic it’s quite a difference! Instead of a huge bed and capabilities, I opted for fuel effiency and cheap aftermarket parts/easy to fix. If in the future I need more I’d get a towable trailer for it prolly, or think about upgrading.

    Unless you need a 4X4 truck the cargo van makes sense. Lots of storage options can be built in and you can move around inside almost upright.

    @theamcguy Would so much rather have a big cargo van that this 350 and trailer. I’m so tired of hitching up and unhitching I could scream sometimes. I don’t plow with that truck…too long..so really don’t need it or the 4×4 per say for work.
