    if you were to buy a pick up truck what would you get and why?

    f150?
    silverado?
    tundra?

    or what other kind?

    Its better than any truck you will find around here for $40g's

    It can beat a top of the line F150 in the quarter mile with 1000 lbs of payload.

    fuel econemy
    hp for hauling

    Toyota. No contest, hands down winner IMO.

    Look good, lots of power, great resale, great reliability, comfortable, and practical.

    If you want good towing and longevity with fuel economy get a Diesel! they just upped the HP and torque on the Duramax (Isuzu). Dodge's new Cummins is supper quiet and they last forever. but Ford's (international) 6L is supposed to be pretty good and there older 7L engine is pretty fuel efficient.

    Get a Chevy!

    stop listening to country music - the song "there's something women like about a pick-up man" is totally not true - it won't help you get laid so save your money ;)

    get this one

    Its 18-inch 45-series V-rated radials and alloy wheels are for real. Its 0-to-60 in just over 7 seconds and its 240 horsepower V6 with 275 pound feet of torque are for real. Yes, the X-Runner's one tough street truck. And soon it'll be within your grasp

    F-150 is what I would choose, and I'm not a Ford fan.
