I have a 94 f150 xlt 4x4 short bed reg cab to pull my 98 custom weld sled that at the truck weigh station has an axle wight of 3400lbs. My truck has 188+K miles on it. I will keep it going as long as it will keep going. I was thinking someday it will need replacing. I was thinking of going to a newer 3/4ton truck. Any suggestions. I really like the looks of the dodge 2003-2009 2500/3500. Money will be the biggest consideration.
