Alright guys, I found this forum and was hoping you guys could help me make a decision here. I currently own a 2003 Ford Explorer that I am not happy with at all. Ive always been a truck lover but at 16-17 when I was looking for a car, the deal i got on the explorer I couldnt pass up. Im 18 now and really wanting a truck, but not looking to put a lot of money towards buying one since Im starting College next september and have to keep my finances in check. What I found while looking through used trucks was this 1993 Chevy C3500 and i think it looks great! I dont know much about Chevys since Ive only driven Fords(150's, 250 Super Duty) while working, so id like you guys to help me on if getting rid of my Explorer for this would be worth it. So far the major Pros and Cons i come up with are 2003 Explorer: Pros- 4 wheel drive for driving in the snow(I really need a vehicle that can handle driving in the snow). Hasn't given me any machincal issues since ive owned it(going on 2 years) Cons- I love trucks Not enough power in my opinion to tow the trailer with all the Landscaping equipment. 1993 C3500: Pros- Much more power Can trade in/sell my explorer and already have enough cash to buy it. I love trucks, especially Duallys Cons- No 4x4, and Im not familiar with how a non 4x4 dually would handle in snow. Much older then my current vehicle, and Im not familiar with Chevy reliability/durability. At this age will this truck continue to preform and last me? Both my current 2003 Explorer and the 1991 C3500 are in the 80k Mileage. Any help/knowledge you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated!
