That's great to haul gear and equipment from the warehouse to the job...
but where do you keep your tools and small parts?

Van's... they're a GoodThing.

Looks too nice to be a work truck.

Mine's got dents all over it.

If you are hauling tools around I have to go with Tarheels on this one, a van would make more sense, but, she sure is pretty.

I am bias though, I have 12 Lariat and just love it.

Back seats would come out to provide space for tools as well as a tool box added. I hate vans, only trucks.

I need something that looks good to the customers as well. We'll, see. The hunt is on!

96.5k miles. 12k. Financing. With stock rims it looks more ready for work, plus I'd be more willing to bang this thing up without any worries.

did you check the value on kbb.com?

12K maybe too much. Look on Autotrader and look to find a 1 owner truck.

Even if you removed all the seats and sat on your tool box I doubt it would leave enough room for the rest of your HVAC tools let alone the generic parts nessesary to not spend all your time driving to & from the shop.
This pretty truck is just another mistress.

As it sits it would be useless as a HVAC truck with a cap and one of these it might work.
I have one from these people and it's worked out great.

Okay, I've listended to you guys, now I'll let you know that I've used a single cab with an 8' bed with only a tool box for 3 years and had no problems carrying all of my tools in it and not just tossed in the bed either.

A utility bed cover might work.

Well, you're looking at Fords, so you're on the right track.

There are other trucks out there?

2006, 10k, 45k miles. If I can get the company to front me the cash this would be perfect.

All nice looking trucks Doc. Had an 05 Ford supper crew myself for a couple years. Good work truck, rode like a truck, and hard on gas like a truck. Now I have a new Dodge, softer ride, more power for trailer towing, still hard on gas like a truck.

I'd post you a pic of my outfit, but not sure how to get a picture on here.

Here she is folks, just picked her up. 2001 F250 Super Duty 7.3 Turbo Diesel. She flies! Has a cold air intake (K & N) and a tranny shift kit. Came with a Rawson Koenig tool box with keys to lock it. Upgraded to 2010 mirrors and running boards. Icey cold a/c, couldn't be any better had I installed it myself.







I think I got a pretty good deal. She's got more power than I know what to do with, much more than I'll ever need or use.
