What’s the best multi-purpose truckFebruary 19th, 2011 by ed friedrich
I’ve got too many rigs. It’s hard to even get in the driveway anymore, what with the kid driving now and a old full-sized pickup there just for dump duty and to pull the boat down to the launch four or five times a year. So here’s what I’m thinking: Get a rig that can get respectable mileage on my 23-mile-each-way commute (almost all highway), thus replacing my old Accord, that can also pull my boat out of the water, rending my F-150 unneeded. And I want to do it as inexpensively as possible.
What do you think. I immediately thought of a four-wheel-drive Toyota with a V6. They’re not cheap, though, and don’t really get that great of mileage.
Help me out.
