    I would love to get the opinion on what is best used out there. I am looking for a different truck that will hold 4 passengers comfortably, short bed, 3/4 ton gas engine and an automatic transmission. Am planning on putting a V-plow boss on it. I have a dodge deisel 3/4 auto now and want to go back to gas. It has a 8-2 v-plow boss now and love the plow. Am planning on selling that and starting with something different and that holds more people.
    Thanks for the input

    If you really want gas go with a mega cab with a hemi.. Or an F250 crew either truck is capable. Chevy has the smallest crew cab FYI but the softest ride and most responsive steering.

    6.2 has more power i believe. 5.7 is a good motor also. Basically comes down to brand preference.

    If you want a gasser, then a Chevy 2500HD with a 6.0 V8 will push your BOSS V great!

    I love my 2012 6.2! More than enough power to do what I need to do......plowing is nothing for it.
