I have never owned a diesel truck but want to buy a used 3/4 ton pickup. I will be using it for general use and about 20% of the time tow a trailer and tractor that weighs a total of about 11,000 pounds. I was favoring a Ford diesel but it seems as if the 7.3 and 6.0 engines have had a lot of problems. I am looking for something from 2002-2006. I am not opposed to GMC/Chevrolet, and now after reading about all the Ford problems, I am probably leaning toward GMC. MPG is also important and would like to know which is better
on fuel. Looking to buy right away so any information would be appreciated.
