    I am looking for a truck with

    4X4
    8-foot bed
    towing
    4 seats (four doors?)

    would use for general hauling, some towing, and maybe light snowplowing.

    Do not care about off-roading. Do not care about having a "country cadillac" or some jacked-up, tricked-out shiny thing. Actually, a few dings would be ok.

    What is a good model?

    Father-in-law's is AQUA MARINE. He doesn't care about color and that was the color of the one on the lot.

    Black is great if you like to wash your car every day.

    Mr. Joyce are you buying it new or used? You would be smart to buy a used, low mileage one that someone else had already paid the depreciation on.

    Get the one with the 8-foot bed, make sure it's an XLT with the half-cab as there are no XLT's with just the single cab. Do not get 4 x 4 as it reduces the amount you can tow.

    I doubt he wants the truck to last over 500,000 miles like the diesel would do. I know people who are still driving one from the 1990s and have never had a problem with the engine.
