My old truck is on its last leg and I must face the reality, I need a new(er) one. Brand new is out of the question given the prices of them these days so a used one it shall be. I'm thinking 3/4 ton diesel pick up or a van would be good but I doubt that an acceptable van could be found. I know everyone has their opinions on which is better so what I want to concentrate on is what should I stay away from? And how many miles is too many on a diesel engine for one of these smaller beasts? I like 4WD but don't have it on my van so I don't think it would be a must unless it was included at a reasonable cost. Thanks for the help.
