    How Much?

    Is money no object? What is your budget otherwise.

    well you didnt say anything about towing, so the 5.4L should be plenty. Then since you are doing mainly driveways a 7.5' should work for you.

    a 250 shortbed should work fine for what you need...it will be great in driveways. i use a f-350 dump truck and hate having to do drives...they're too big for that type of work.

    From what I have been reading here go at least an 8.5' for mirror clearance near buildings. I just bought a 9' Fisher SS X Blade for $4,000.00 OTD cash n carry.
