…with my CAR NUT BALL affliction. I’d ask the pro, should I keep the very nice 2000 Ford F-150 4×4 extended cab pickup with 140,000 miles, that I bought in early July to replace the big 2007 Chevy 3500 van, or should I sell the Ford and keep the little 1994 Chevy short bed V-6 powered pickup with only 73,000 miles, that I recently bought as a flipper truck??? Here’s my dilemma, the Chevy van was the best towing vehicle I’ve ever owned. I had made beds for the van that were very comfortable. I had already made three long towing trips to pick up vehicles this year, but, I feel that I have been very lucky in not having any mechanical breakdowns or accidents in all of these vehicle adventures over the last few years, EXCEPT when that Ford F-350 diesel pickup broke down in Southern Oregon and l was stranded there for 4 days. That time it cost about $1700.00 for the repair, plus a couple hundred for a rental car. I got the Ford F-150 to stop myself from making those long trips and limit them to less than 500 miles one way. Picking up the ‘94 Chevy pickup was an 18-hour over and back trip to Southern California. The Ford did great, but it was just another long towing trip with the same possibilities of a breakdown or an accident etc. Financially, something like that happening would not be good. The little low-mileage Chevy V-6 pickup would be OK for some light local towing if needed, but definitely not for long tows. Yes, I could probably just stop myself from doing the long trips, but, then why do I need a big F-150 4×4 pickup that only gets about 15mpg while not towing? Plus, I really like the little Chevy short bed and it gets over 20 mpg.
