    What would be the best used truck/suv that I could probably get for around $5000? It needs to be able to tow two seadoos, a boat, or some other stuff. I'd like 4WD but don't have to have it. I have looked through the autotrader for some Rangers, Dakotas, 4runners, etc. I'd like to try to get something that isn't any more than like.. 10 years old if possible. Any ideas?

    For now it would more than likely only be like two seadoos/jetski or some pwc.

    Found a 97 Dakota SLT Clubcab w/ 6speed standard at 58K miles on it for $5K. Sounds like a good deal to me.. but I'm not too good at this stuff. One of my friends mentioned that dodges have been known to have tranny problems.. :dunno:

    full size chevy blazer, 87-91, because of fuel injection. cheap to buy, cheap to modify, and just an all around great vehicle.

    I actually like the s-blazers,but only until 94'. 4.3l is a must.

    also, i had a 91, and i now have an 01', and both were equipped with 3.73 gears, and a limited slip diff, rpo code g80.

    I still say get a K5. :bigthumb:
