My vote is for Ford. If I was looking for a new truck now I would check out the Isuzu. Chevys are nice too! You will get opinions on all three so I figured I'd get things rolling. Whatever you choose you will be taking a giant step up from the Astro Van.

Have you considered the new Mercedes/Freightliner vans? I don't know what they cost but I am seeing more and more of them on the road now.

The Isuzu cab-over diesels last forever, from everything I have heard, but I also heard they are dangerous in an accident. Is this true?

We just bought a "workmax" like truck. Actually ours is a 12 ft Supreme Spartan, it's the same thing basically only suposed to be a little heavier duty. Ours is GMC. We looked at Isuzu, but the body was too high off the ground. I liked the Isuzu, but in the end we went with GMC. We like the set up, but not the gas mileage. Also nobody wanted to drive it after we bought it, but they all like having EVERYTHING on the truck.

I guess if you are in front of the vehicle, sitting over the left front wheel, with a nice big windshield in front of you, and the "bus" steering wheel....and you hit something're in deep trouble.

Drove a few ISUZU type, there fun, economical, last long.....but.

Like anything you drive, ya got to be careful.
