    Welcome to TW!

    If you get the V6 you will have lots of power to haul what you need but if your looking for great mileage you won't get it... I'm not sure what kind of mileage you are getting now, post up some numbers if you got them.

    Welcome to TW from Fort Irwin, CA :wave:

    The sad news is that for the price of what you will pay for an 09 or newer you can get a full size truck with comparable fuel consumption. You could save some $$$ if you looked at 05-07 4x4 4 cylinder's. They'll haul your bikes, quads, fire wood, and nic nacs...just at a slower speed than the V6 and MAYBE 2-4 MPG better. Trade of is you'll pay way less for the 4 banger and can use the extra money to buy a URD Supercharger :wink:
