    i like chevy too
    i drove a lot of them.
    however I'm driving a ford now
    its ok but missing some dashboard space plenty of cup holders that i don't need it
    for the engine, much better chevy. both v6
    i had change to drive Nissan, they drive well, seats are very large and comfy, its a big truck i have to say and in small places could be a problem. plenty of room behind, the cargo area is very large. plus mine had a 6/7 inches screen gps radio and other stuff.
    nice.

    I work differently than I used to (I don't carry as much) but I have a white GMC 1500 van with a 4.3 V-6 that I really like. 12.5 mpg no matter what I do around here - but 23-24 mpg on the highway. Tows heavy stuff and will happily run 90 mph all day long - not while towing though. <g> 10' lengths are no problem in the back (behind the OSHA screen). Very comfortable to drive, quiet, handles well. 175K miles showing and it now uses about a quart of Mobil 1 every 5000 miles or so.

    I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

    We have had sprinters high roof mid length. Great fuel economy (Diesel) but expensive to fix. Moved to a transit 250 for the last 2. Fitted out with full HVAC shelving package and roof ladder rack. Great van really good power. Only knock is traction in snow is terrible. We put studded winters on to help and it makes a huge difference. We priced a gas sprinter as a comparison not fitted out with shelves and it was over 10k more. Mercedes wanted to lease us a van for around $800 a month for 5 years and then a balloon payment of 20k. Plus I still had to up fit it for another 8k. Not even close to worth it.

    I'm in a 2014 Ford E150 V6. It's a gutless pig that has blown 2 spark plugs out of the head. Ford went to a 2 piece spark plug a few years back and most all my coworkers have lost one. Strangely my old boss had a 2010 E250 that handled like a sports car vs the new ones that have all the grace of an inebriated walrus. My old lead tech had the dodge sprinter, which was easier in a parking lot than you would figure and lots of room but seemed to be in the shop to often. I've talked to a couple guys with the Nissan who love it. It looks pretty nice to my eye but Nissans reliability would give me pause

    Like the step ladder storage, how hard is it getting the extension ladder off?
