1/2 or 3/4 ton?

I’m still looking at 2500’s. If this house actually sells, I’m pulling that trigger.

The “half, 3/4, 1 ton” terminology is out dated.
My wife’s 150 has a payload of 1500 pounds. That makes it a 3/4 ton.
My “1 ton” SRW F350 has a payload of 3490 pounds which is over 1.5 tons.

I bet a new 250/2500 is more than a 1 ton.

I had the 66, straight 6 with 3 on the column. Damn thing would go just about anywhere.
The old land cruiser was the only other vehicle that ever got into the the places we took our bronco.

Of course, we didn’t care about the paint.

You’re outdated.
That’s what I know them by. My 06 F150 will not tow or pull what a new one will. I know that.

@T_Max 1500 or 2500 with that 6.2L?

It’s too bad that every manufacture has to put a dang iPad in the dash and add $10,000 to the price.

That should be optional, as should every safety device that was forced into the production cost of our vehicles. The nanny state bureaucrats at NHTSA bear the responsibility for jacking up our vehicle costs via regulatory diktat.
Not saying safety features are a bad idea…I’m saying the consumer should be choosing how safe he wants his auto to be. That may depend on his tolerance for risk—and how much he is willing to pay.

The only upside to buying a new truck right now is that credit is cheap. 3 to 4% percentage rates for someone with decent credit. I sold my 2016 RAM 1500 truck that was paid off for just under 34k. I paid off some credit cards, and put down $27k on my 2021 Tacoma, that was out the door for just under $40k, putting my payments under $240.00 a month. That's a very manageable monthly payment, for a brand new truck. A year ago, my used RAM 1500, would have only been worth, maybe 27 or 28k, as a trade in. It made sense for me to buy a new truck, only because the used market is so crazy right not.

I could sell me 15 F350 diesel with less than 60k miles that I bought in oct of 14 for more than I paid for it new.
Crazy market right now.

Exactly... and some people might find themselves in a position to sell/trade their used car or truck and get out from being upside down on their loan. Especially if they rolled negative equity over in the car that they are in now.

True. But mine is paid for and I like not having a payment.
I was making double payments from day one.

My timeline for a Tacoma got pushed back to December. Largest Toyota dealer in SE (preffered dealer for Toyota Georgetown employees), and does not have any Tacos in stock. Shows some coming in.
I am at the point of either stepping down to SR, from Offroad, or upgrading to TRD Pro, despite its moonroof.
