I need a truck for my new handyman business. Right now I'm driving a Ford Taurus, so that's not really going to work.
I'm thinking about getting rid of the Taurus and getting a pickup. I want something that I can fill up with garbage or mulch or whatever. A utility body would be nice, but I can't see myself using that as my daily driver. Maybe I will get an extended cab so I can keep tools safe inside? I'd like a ladder rack too - but nothing too dorky.
I found this thing called a "Loadhandler" that makes it real easy to dump stuff out of a pickup by just turning a crank. That looks like a really good idea for me if it works.
Maybe I could wire in a big power inverter so I could just plug power tools right into the truck without a separate generator. I don't know if that would work, but it would sure be handy.
If I'm going to buy something special, I want to do it right. I'm thinking maybe a used F-150. What do you think? How can I maximize utility in a truck that I'm not embarrassed to pick up my girlfriend in?
