Went to look at a truck yesterday. Suppose to be a nice truck. Nice rust free, runs great. Went to go take a look at it. The body was beat to crap, didn't start worth a crap and had a pretty bad knock. So passed on that one. Went to look at this truck today. Its got higher miles but im not to worried about that. (mostly highway miles)  Got the 6.0 gas engine. 3/4 ton. Gona be a nice truck to pull my trailer. Gona bring it home tomorrow. (didn't think about the bank being closed today) Duh!

I have a 05 Chevy 1/2 ton short wheel base with the towing package. Excellent truck, carries a lot of weight with the towing package, good power and fuel mileage BUT it is the roughest riding truck. I have a 05 GMC 4 wheel drive with the same equipment but is a 4 door long wheel base and rides like a dream. Only thing I can figure is the short wheel base vs. the long wheel base.

I don't remember how to shop for a vehicle! Last truck I bought from a dealer was 7 years old at the time in 1979, and well, I'm still driving it! I've got another that found me like Patrick said that shares the driving chores some but it is 60 years old!
