    Re: Work Vehicle

    My favorites were the Chevy Astro vans we used to use. Plenty of room for tools and supplies and comfortable to drive with 20+ mpg. Next was chevy pickup with side boxes. Nice ride and plenty of power with a V6. F250 with full utility beds now and they are crap, Super duty can't pull out of its own tracks!

Oh yea and everybody got new brakes once a year no matter what. Sometimes you just get comfortable with what your driving.
      I know it is an age old debate but we use to have several Fords with over 300,000 miles on them. We never could do that with our Chevys. However, I do think a lot of that had to do with our drivers. Some of the guys were really tough on the trucks even after we but them in different trucks.
