Looking at a 20-40k used diesel truck.
4 door
4x4

what are some good options to consider?

I have a DD and another car for weekends.
This would be my 2nd car/tow rig mostly.

I just want something that looks and drives good, without spending 80 grand or something ridiculous.

Will probably keep it 3 - 5 years or so.

step 1: go into crushing debt for the biggest, longest truck you can find. ensure that you park as close to the front of stores as possible while crossing as many lines/spaces as possible.

step 2: buy the tallest lift kit you can find. once installed make certain not to aim your headlights down to compensate, ideally you want the beam to hit the rearview mirror of the car in front of you.

step 3: put the biggest, widest wheels/tires on it you can find, preferably in matte black with little chrome spikes sticking out.

step 4: cut off exhaust, including any emissions devices and mufflers, and run a 5" straight pipe up and out the bed behind the cab

step 5: buy a bullydog tuner and enrich the injection so you can roll coal

step 6: mount trump flag and confederate flags to the bed

step 7: buy a 10" drop hitch and leave it installed even though you never tow anything...you might get lucky and back into a regular car with it.

step 8: profit

:dunno: want one.


There was a time that I thought I wanted one too.

Then I realized the long term maintenance costs and upkeep wasn't worth the trade off for fuel mileage...especially with diesel prices.

Then again, I didn't need a super duty truck at all, but I got one anyway. I also realized I'll never need to tow anything past the capacity of a gas truck.

I've probably towed more with a gas 1500 than most HD diesel trucks TBH. How often do people need to tow 10k plus anyway? Unless you have a fucking yacht or a giant camper, or work on a farm or as a construction boss, I can't figure it out.

Totally spot on, this is how every assfuck has their truck where I live. Best thing is seeing them pulled over all the time because just about every modification is illegal

If I ever bought a camper (giant or not) I'd buy a diesel to go with it. I'd rather not tow over mountain passes with a gas 1500.

ive had my gasser F250 since december and haven't towed the first thing....don't really intend to.

i just like the size and usefulness of it, not to mention all of the creature comforts and bells and whistles :dunno:

loaded F150 with the exact same trim and options as my F250 was the same exact price. i wanted the bigger truck, not the extra 3mpg

People who own trucks just to say they own trucks do that shit. I park mine way the fuck away from everyone else if I can.
