I have an old (78) F250 farm truck, and talk about character........lo.

In the pickup debate I probably side with a one ton SRW pickup.


I own and drive one of those f150's with the ECOBOOST engine daily. It's got a ladder rack and tool boxes on it. I don't carry a ton of material or tools on my truck, but yeah, mileage is still not great. I like the power of the motor, but I think my next truck will be a Dodge. I drove a friends new one the other day and was impressed.

I do like the power for acceleration with the ford though. That turbo is nice.
