GUEST,jonesey Help: Beater Truck (22) RE: Help: Beater Truck 11 Apr 02


Hello LynnT, I've a '90 Mazda B2600i. It's been reliable and steadfast. It's a 3sp. auto w/overdrive. Had an '86 B2000LX 5sp-manual. Both trucks have been real blessings. However, I'm a window cleaner and rarely haul any sort of payload. Would recommend for the money you get at least a V or straight six if you're going to haul soil, stone, etc. The 4 cyl.s labor too hard under load(my Dad was a mechanic and I listened over the years). If possible, get an 8 cyl., but it will most likely have to be older than you may want to go. I paid 3500 for my current truck w/68,000 mile and it now has 109,000 and going strong.
