5.0 or 300?

az3pqf is starting off with a positive reputation.
Like I said, main reason I'm buying one is so I can have one of these nice, older trucks. Sure, the 300 isn't a speed demon and I wouldn't expect it to be one. However, it has decent mileage for the age and no rust (which is rare). It would just be a summer vehicle (and it already has 33's on it ), basically just for looks. I can always buy a POS redneck lifted truck with massive tires (VERY easy to find where I live) if I want to have a lot of fun.

I think the 300 is what I'm gonna go with.

You won't be disappointed. Well, you will, if you try to race. But When you get to 300k, and you are like "Damn! This engine still runs like new!" and you find that even though it was supposed to be a recreational vehicle, you have towed heavy loads with it and hauled a bunch of crap with it, and you out do these modern so called "trucks" on fuel mileage, you'll be very satisfied.
