    Eco boost vs tundra pull. I know its not practical or mature. But fun to watch none the less.

    I thought the reason you would buy one truck over the other was on task?

    With fuel and oil prices as high as they are now, for the op's needs, I would be more than happy with a gas engine. I wish my old chevy had a gas engne now. When I bought it diesel was less than gas, now its more. That trucks mileage isn't much better than a gas engine, now it cost more to drive than a gas engine would. On top of that, diesels are alot more finiky with cold weather than the gas engines are and cost more to maintain, batteries, oil, filters, it all adds up. Something to consider nowdays. From what I've been hearing the new diesels don't get very good milage with all the emissions they have, more and more gas powered trucks are looking like a better option unless you "need" a heavy hauler.

    Did you see the British Top Gear when they tried to see how much punishment a Hilux could take? That thing was bulletproof. And, it had a diesel engine.
    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    But is it imported to the US. Lots of our vehicles are sold out of the US with small. efficient diesels that arn't sold here. I believe Ford sells the F150 & Explorer in Canada with a small diesel.

    I will NEVER buy another large PU (3/4 or 1 ton) with a gas engine. My 1999 Ford F350, 7.3 Powerstroke (my 3rd diesel) is 4x4, extra cab, short bed and automatic trans. It now has 235,000 miles on it with no repairs or breakdowns. Just minor maint. The tranny has never been apart, just serviced every 40K or so. I get around 20mpg driving on interstates as long as I keep the speed at around 65. I get 15/16 towing my 8500# travel trailer. Sorry....couldn't do that if it had a gas engine.I've been driving PU diesels since 1984 and will never buy a gas rig in a bigger PU again.

    I agree CC. The reason I wish my old Chevy was now a gas engine truck is because I have the 01 Ford with the 7.3 too. If I had to have one truck the 7.3 is the one I would keep. For the OP's needs, I think a gas engine truck would do just fine for him.
