Here's my dilemma -

As the proud (not so) owner of the infamous gas guzzler I am now on the horns of the Upgrade or Buy dilema.

I love the truck (and need it as I live on acreage and require a working vehicle) but I know the fuel consumption should be / could be better. So my mechanic and I are mapping out an overhaul including Ram Air, Dual Exhast and possibly upgrading the heads. All in all this will cost me some money but not as much as selling the truck and replacing it with a slightly newer used vehicle. The fact , at the very least, that I know what's working and what's not on ole guzzler and have a handle on the ins and outs gives me reason enough to not even consider taking on a semi-new unknown which could have any number of issues aboard.

So I thought, hoped, that you my fellow mObluing communty would be interested in entertaining a discussion as to the pro's vs con's and what I might consider as not just the 'right' thing to do but also the 'sensible' and 'economic' thing to do... Anyone care to chime in?

Cheers,
Scott

Keep it an use it around the farm and get you a gas sipper to do the bulk of your driving in.
