    I'd get a Ford F350 with a gas 6.2L. 4.30 or 4.56 gears. Long bed. Manual hubs and transfer case if you can find 'em. XLT is fine. Don't waste $$$ on the Lariats, Platinum, or King Chump...

    +1.

    You want stiffer shocks. Not softer. Either your springs are too stiff or you're bouncing off the bump stops. Or the truck has lousy suspension geometry.

    Full synthetic in a regular V8 F150 is a waste of oil. Cobra, Raptor, OK. But there is nothing especially wrong with the standard 4.6 that expensive oil will fix. It's a budget, low output,...

    A newer supercab or crewcab F150 is great for towing smaller 19' single axle trailers and boats. Something the Jeep will struggle to do (safely). And the F150 can haul 1 bike at the same time. ...

    Hehe. But seriously, I hate all of the Adventure bikes on the highway. Only the big BMW and KTM Aventure 990 get a pass for freeway use from me.

    Truck.

    I'll never go back to a Jeep. Jeeps are about as useful as a motorcycle, 4wheeler, or a sportscar. Can't tow jack, never any room, can't haul anything. It'll go anywhere, but if you...

    Uh, no. It's a cheap forklift engine. Nowhere even close to a wet liner 15L semi truck engine in quality, materials, or reliability. Not even close. Never was.
