    what would be the ultimate truck? as in easily be able to drive everyday... not 100 miles but around town. off road. rock climb. haul. etc. and not be some made up creation of one body, a different brand engine, this part, that part. the best all around truck.
     
  2. My ZR2 is about as good as you can get as far as being good on and off road goes. Itl haul pull, and do everything.

    Best all around IMO is the F150 with 5.4 Off Road package 4x4. It would dp well in everday driving, hauling, off roading and have plenty of room to store stuff.

    Lightings can't go off-road, though it would be fun to watch.

    For a good jack of all trades, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, old and new fits the bill. It does everything well, and is killer off-road right off the dealer lot.

    Those trucks are kick arse. Smack a little lift, 37's and life would be good.

    I'm going to have to go w/ the F-150 with just a 4.6. It'll stomp the bigger engines w/ gas mileage, it's got the ground clearance for some off-roading, and beats anything in it's class in hauling capacity.

    LETS get some thunder in here

    Id have to say that the best all around truck for quality reliability and all around build as to comfort and performance would be the chevy z71's as in the last year of production of 1998, i do a lot of offroading here in every terrain and i whoop the crap out of my buddies 2001 dodge offroad, and i can hold with my buddies jeep wrangler. I got headers free flow dual pipes, and 285 75 16's bridgestone duellers, they get around great.

    No offense, I'll have to disagree on the diesel notion. As far as power goes, they're definitely superior, but that's not true for fuel econ and speed. (generally speaking)

    See that falls under the sheer HP category, because any diesel will kick a gas engine's ass :)

    Incorrect. Don't forget the Lightning, somewhere around 380 hp now.

    Actually that depends on the engine and how it's driven ----- driven responsibly (yeah right) a bigger engine can get better mileage


    To make my point .............
    White car -- '78 Chrysler Newport 4dr hardtop, weight 4460lbs, powered by a 440
    Green car -- '75 Chrysler Newport 4dr sedan, weight 4450, powered by a 400

    '78 weighs 10 more pounds and has a 40 cid larger engine yet gets an extra 5-6 mpg
