    I have an antique, (mid seventies) 3/4 ton wood hauler with a 454. It also gets about 10MPG but I drive it less than a thousand miles a year. I can stack wood to the top of the cab & it doesn't even grunt. I can haul in one load what many others haul in two loads. "Ole Blue" has been here so long he is one of the family.

    My normal load, 2 cars.

    I drain the gas from the scrapped cars so I get really good mileage on that gas.

    my truck and my wifes truck are a night and day difference.

    i drive a 2004 chevy 2500hd, with the 6.0, nv4500 manual, 2wd, no options except ac and a radio. rubber floormats, manual locks and windows, i love it. simple to work on. i put a detroit locker in the 14 bolt, and it chews thru the snow as good as most 4wd trucks...
