I have a need for a used cheap pickup to pull my trailer. Max weight 3500 pounds. Half ton would be fine. V6 gas. Trucker guy I know said the inline 6 Ford diesel was good, but I can not find any info. My Dodge van pulls the trailer fine on flat roads, but will struggle over the mountains, and the gear box may not last.
Any thoughts from you guys. Modern tech scares me more than old and fixable.
