Drive a Chevy C1500 right now

My foreman has a C3500 with a knapheiede utility body with two double door top boxes on top of that.

The owner drives a chevy 3500 van with the contractor bin package.

Of course, the wife's car is a Ford Taurus.

I think that Chevys drive better (steering), but Fords handle better (suspension. But what do I know? [Linked Image]

If you want, get the same make as you have now, and get matching keys. Saves searching for spares!

those sprinters would be the ultimate contractor rig. I love the fact they are diesel. I own a '97 Dodge Ram with the cummins turbo diesel. I will never own another gas aspired vehicle again, unless it's a sports car or 4wheeler. [Linked Image]

For me Ford vans hands down. My most recent Ford I had for 10 years and 160,000 miles before any problems started. E250
