    Ivorytip I love my toyota. It gets around so good. It cut my fuel bill into half. I put 33" tires on it for a little more clearance and it does good.

    Here's my 2008 Tundra. This is an older picture Has a leveling kit w 20" in. rims and Nitto Terra tires. That put my MPG down a bit but then I added an air in take after and its right about 17-18 which was the original MPG. So far its made 2 trips to Wyoming for Mule deer, and a few elk hunting trips in my home state of New Mexico. It rides well, my little girl loves riding in it compared to her mother's vehicle. Hauls a 2 horse trailer just fine as well as an occasional trailer full of hay. But sad to say it sat idle this hunting season.
    We also have an old 76 chevy pickup that needs some major work. Hopefully some day I'll get a chance to work on that as well as find my dream car to restore and customize.

    I have decided and "on-a-mission" to find a 1991 - 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ, and build it from there.....this I feel will meet my needs for a not-so daily driver, 4 wheel, low cost, plenty of parts and aftermarket support and that extra covered storage space, strong and 50 year old I6 engine and stout driveline........15-20 MPG, I can live with that.

    I wish the bastards still made a Ford Excursion.

    I am going to look for a Ford F250 SWB crew cab in gas.

    How do the Ford gas motors stack up in the F250?

    If you're still looking, I've got an '08 F250 w/ the V10. Stick with the '07s and later, the earlier versions were 2-valve engines, less power, worse mileage and had a nasty penchant for blowing sparkplugs out (literally ripping the plug along with the threads around it out of the head).

    Personally, I wouldn't recommend the V8, when I was researching it, it didn't get any better gas mileage, but definitely has less power. When I driving my truck home the day I bought it, I passed an E350 van with the V8 going up a grade. That thing was screaming while my truck wasn't working hard at all.

    The down side to a gas truck is that the best mileage is 13-14mpg on the freeway with the wind at your back and it quickly worsens when you start hauling a load.

    My reserve unit has Diesel F350s and I had to make several trips from Riverside to San Diego and back, a couple of times in the government trucks and once in my truck.

    The Diesel trucks used 1/2 tank of gas going to San Diego and back, my truck used 1/2 tank just going from Riverside to San Diego.

    So, the extra $.20 to $.50 a gallon for diesel pays for itself when gas is almost $4 a gallon. So, at that point, the question is whether you can afford the extra $8000 up front for the diesel.


    As far as hunting, I love my truck, but it's big, so it's limited in where it can go, plus I don't want to beat it up (too much).

    My ideal hunting truck would be a Toyota Hilux w/ the crew cab and diesel (the ones that you see from North Africa to Afghanistan), but we can't get them here in the U.S.

    Next from there would be a Jeep of some sort.

    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    2007 Chevy 2500 HD Crew Cab, 6.0 ltr Vortec, 33" Toyo MT's, cranked up the torsion bars to level and still get 13mpg. Tows anything, hauls enough gear and guys to mount an expedition and bring home cooler full of meat. Adding a topper and Truck Vault soon. I love this rig!
