Well, after a lot of searching and many various test drives I settled on a new truck. Being a large town (Tampa) there are many dealers of the same brands, so as a shopper, you get a lot of haggle power. You can also narrow down exactly what your trade is worth to a dealer (Every dealer was within about $500 of each other after "real numbers" were shown).

I had two Chevy Avalanches and both were excellent trucks. I would highly recommend that vehicle to anyone looking for a solid everyday driver and tow truck.

Pictures and more info to follow.
