Re: Truck Recommendations?
Diesel, 1 ton, I've driven all flavors. Dodge is nice, I do like the engine brake on the newer ones. I prefer an automatic myself now, I've never managed to kill one in a 1 ton. I have mostly driven company trucks, so if they are manual, they are sloppy (from bad drivers/employees).
You really need to think about what your typical load will be. Sure you have 50 hives, working to 500 or more. How many would you actually be hauling at a time within the few years? How long do you plan to keep it? Another option would be to buy used, drive it 1-2years, sell and repeat.
