I am looking to sell my k-5 and get a pickup instead. It will be a weekend work truck for the farm and something that i will use to tow with every once in a while. I have been looking for a 3/4 or 1 ton 80's model chevy but they are to find in decent shape in my price range. I can only spend a max of $4500. What do you all think Chevy or Ford ? I would like a 3/4 ton or better since I will be towing some and the fords seem cheaper but I have always had chevrolets and know a lot more about them. Are the deisels in the 80's Fords ok? I have noticed a few F250's with 6 cyclinders, are these strong enough to do any towing? In another words if you were in my shoes what would you look for? By the way as far as the towing the load will be 6000 pounds or less 95% of the time with a rare case of 8-9000.
