I'm almost finished stripping my DD to sell it, but I have no idea what I'm gonna do once it sells. I'm either going to buy an economy car or a rig capable of towing my trail rig. Option #1: Economy car. My sister is probably going to sell her '00 GP soon, and getting the family discount would be key. If that doesn't work out, eco cars are a dime a dozen. I could sell my truck, save money on gas, and pick up some cash immediately to either save or dump into my next build. But, I would be at the mercy of my dad for a tow rig. Our relationship goes from awesome to yelling matches with no notice, so it's sort of sketchy whether or not I'll have a tow rig sometimes. Option #2: Tow rig. I'd be looking for a 3/4 ton or 1 ton gasser. The pre-'98 body styles are cheap as hell right now and a 454 is always a good motor. I could also look for a Gen III 6.0 block for a good, reliable tow rig. Rather have an 8.1 for power but they're as rare as hen's teeth from what I've seen. Gas mileage wouldn't be great but I get an average of about 11 with the truck I have now, and it'd puke it's guts out if I towed my trail rig with it. A major drawback is that I'd need to take out a loan. I'd be repaying it on unsteady seasonal work. Even though I probably have the resources to pay up front I'd have no reserves and wouldn't be able to wheel for a while. A definite plus is that I would have my own tow rig and wouldn't have to be borrowing trucks constantly. Anybody have input? It's a one or the other situation here. I already have two trucks and trailer, I don't want to add another vehicle to maintain and title to the mayhem. This vehicle is going to replace my DD so the $200 take a year to rebuild it special won't work in this situation. I'm 50/50 right now. I can deal with payments on a truck and living cheap to make the tow rig work, and looking toward the future when I don't live at home, I'll need a rig of my own. But it would definitely be nice to pad the bank account and save some money on gas.
