Im in the process of selling a 02 Chevy. Looking to upgrade to something 8 years oldish with 4 doors. This will mainly be used for hauling/towing/Camping road trip know and then you know Truck like things. Ford seem to be the only popping up in my price range with decent miles. Not looking to get one with 200 plus on it. Im a V-8 guy but there are alot of the Eco Boost V-6 out there. Have the Eco's been holding up well? Or just stick with a bullet proof V8?

The ecoboost can experience a stretched timing chain.

The 5.0Ls can get piston slap/oval bores.

Those are the two major engine things I know about. I can't say if ther is one year more prone to another.

I think the Nissian's are a good value for the money. I have a 2016 I use to tow a 28' toy hauler. Weighed it fully loaded with 3 Bikes at 9,800. Can't hardly tell it's back there.

Not to mention you don't see 15 of them per mile like a F150.

I bought a '14 RAM 1500 Express Quad Cab for just over 22. Had 66k miles on it. Been uber happy with it and use it to tow and travel with - its not my daily driver. Tows a 27' aluminum snowmobile trailer with ease.

I've heard some horror stories with Ford and Dodge. I would search for a used Tundra. But I like reliability heh.

That's why I sold my '03 Goldwing 2 years ago. I knew the new model was coming soon.

I like the Tundra as well. But I want a heavier half ton. Just sold my GMC SIERRA 2500HD Crew cab with the 8.1/Allison combo, so I'm accustomed to some more power and towing capacities.
The Nissan Titan XD is a nice compromise. A 5/8 ton if you will.
Funny thing is the motor in the Titan has about 60 more horsepower than my big block had...

Ya 4x4 is need. Winter/woods driving. No mention of miles on the CL add that always a good sign.
