So i'm almost 15 now, and planning on getting my learners permit then. And then once i'm like around 16 i'll have my drivers license and get my truck around there or before. I will probably be using it for driving around town, and hauling all sorts of objects, and take it off-road every once in awhile for some fun, and also taking it on camping and hunting trips and what not, possibly some long trips every now and then. So I was thinking on a ford f250, diesel or gas, not sure about that. 4x4 for sure, no doubt about that. and crew cab, super cab, reg cab, I don't really mind about this, but I prefer a 2 door. and what year should I get? What is the best year for no problems and good performance and what not? I was thinking around 1996 or 1997. I will most likely put a nice lift on it, not too small not too big, around 4inch, and then some tires around 35s or so. What would be best for lifts and tires also? Now tranny, auto or manual? I was thinking manual cuz thats some fun stuff there, and pretty cool as well. and mileage, lets see, I dont mind a WHOLE lot about what miles I get on it, but preferably above 12mpg hahaha. Good gas mileage is a real nice thing though. and I want a nice powerful truck, maybe pull a few trailers, none too big or anything just some decent sized ones. and a nice truck for good performance in different weather, and road conditions. Just mainly, what year? auto, manual? Diesel, gas? cab? any true advice is good, and what you learned from experience is nice. Ask any questions, and i'll try to answer on what i'm looking for, and what I prefer, just throw out what ever you got, Thanks!
