1994 Toyota 4x4 pickup, extended cab. 382,000+ kms on her. gonna be setting her aside as a bush only truck in a year or so and upgrading to a domestic 1/2 ton. when the yota dies, it dies. it'll be left on the side of the road before i put another penny into it. so sick of the inflated import parts prices and weak components. i should have walked away from the truck years ago. bought it for $6000, have at least $9000 in repairs into it. i

I am running an 08 GMC Sierra quad cab with the all terrain series package on it. I picked it up when I traded in my 08 mazda b4000 after having a son and realizing we needed something we could fit a car seat in the back seat.

My wife runs an 02 Chevy trailblazer with all the fancy stuff on it and seems to really like it.

If I had some extra cash I would pick up one of those right side drive mini trucks with 4x4 for running around the city and trips out to the hills for some fly fishing. It would be easy to build a topper for the back so I could carry all my fishing gear back and in the winter I could have my hockey gear back there without getting it filled with snow.

I have an 07 GMC half ton Z-71 extended cab.  This was my dad's truck, and I started driving it after he passed away, and it's in great shape. I drove Duramax's from 2002 to near the end of 2009, and my last one was a new body style back in 07.   My lease was up about a year and a half ago, and I had taken out 3 deer with that truck, so I did not keep it.  GM is re designing their truck for a 2013 release, so a new HD will probably be coming late 2013.  I think I might hang on till then to get another Diesel crew cab and put a 6 inch lift on it. 

For a hunting truck, I want an old longbox GM 3/4 or one ton 4X4 with a winch and some extra goodies for going into crappy places.  Maybe though I think I would just be better with a 02 or 03 GM 6.0 gas crew cab.

2001 Ford F250 Superduty EC 5.4l gas job. Will be my fulltime hunting truck soon as looking for a new 3/4 ton for hauling the trailer and boat around.

Commuter vehicle is a 1998 Dodge Neon. Had a GMC Canyon but it met an untimely demise at the hands of a deer. Bought the Neon off my nephew for $500. Runs like a champion so use it to commute to work (40 kms one way) as it is easy on fuel.

I'm a die hard Ford guy.

My current truck is a 2002 F350 XLT Crew Cab 4X4 short box with the 6.8L V10.  First vehicle I've ever bought brand new, and probably the last. 

The truck's been damn good to me (knock on wood), it hasn't cost me a dime other than routine maintenance and it's never let me down.  The V10 has plenty of power (not like the new diesels, but enough) and has been completely reliable, it's a great engine, but it's pretty thirsty.

My next truck will depend on what I decide to do with my toys.  For towing the boat, hauling around dirt bikes/sleds and general use, the Supderduty is way overkill, I'd probably go with an F150 and the new EcoBoost, that's a helluva combination from what I've seen and read.  (Of course, an F150 Raptor Crew Cab wouldn't suck either lol.)  If I hang onto the 5th wheel and end up with more bikes/sleds/quads, then I'll stick with the Superduty.  I've got my eye on the new ones with the new Ford diesel in them, they are SWEET, but they also sticker out at close to $80,000 when loaded up, and there's no way I'm paying that kinda money for a truck.

No matter which way I go, when the  time comes to buy another truck, I'll never sell "Ol' Blue", she'll get retired to a life of hunting and ranch work.  ;D
