Hi all,

Begun some research into a full size 1500 truck...wondering how the 4.3 V6 does in it or if the v8 is the way to go. My uses will be a lot of highway commuting in the mountains on the interstate as well as limited use pulling a raft trailer and flat towing my jeep, and the odd small little camper RV we occasionally borrow from a friend. My Taco 4.0v6 does fine for everything except pulling the jeep and the camper through the mountains. But I also worry the v6 would be more of an issue just moving the heavier full-size. The v6 seems to come at nice discount around here and is more in the price range I am hoping for (possibly because its not very desirable in the mountains?)
