In regards to getting a $250k loan I am actually financially able to pay for everything I have a lot of accounts that are good money and easy work. I am billing out $23k a month right now with these new Burger King contracts and fuel cost me $1500 a month and labor is about $4500. Mowers are paid off and I have 3 zero turns and one walk behind, I am good on that note for now. I was just thinking new trucks because I am only 23 so I have a long long road ahead in building my company. If I can make it this far in 7 years who knows how far I can actually grow!

I need trucks and I am willing to go new for the warranty and ease of matching work trucks. I have a 2009 silverado ltz that I am considering trading in so I can get 2 reg cab work trucks to send a couple guys out in one and I can work from the other. I have put 20,000 miles on my truck since last november when I bought it, value is dropping fast so I rather get some reliable work trucks that I can get some major work done. I am looking at the reg cab silverado 1500wt 2x4's with either the 4.8 v8 or the v6.... And I have been reading up on the Ford work trucks that come with the ecoboost... Any suggestions on a good route to go?? I am leaning towards the two chevy's just because I am a GM man but if Ford tough is the way to go that's what I will do.
What are you going to get if you have lots of towing to do get a ford super duty but if you have less stuff to haul you should get the new ford f150 with ecoboost.
