in terms of wear, generally

Would you rather buy a truck with all highway miles, or all backwoods trail 4x4 miles?

Guess we have different streets.

And I have yet to find a difference in engine life with one of my toys or daily drivers.

Buddy of mine buys a truck, uses it, when tire life is about to go to hell he sells and buys another. Smart or dumb?

Those ecoboost trucks get alot of ****, but I like the design. Granted you should never tow or lift those trucks merely because they dont have the power. But if you want to DD a truck and care about fuel mileage thats the way to go.

Tell him to regear or rethink his choice of vehicle.

I had 8.1 silvarodo z71 super cool nice truck used it to pull large power washing setup pulled it like it was nothin hooked to it, but it got 12mpg pullin and 12mpg unhooked so gas sucked but tons of power also my cousin has a 5.3 that does the job pretty good and get close to 20mpg highway also super nice trucks and both were 03s so. Honestly unless your pulling a 3000lb+ trailer the 5.3 is more truck then ya could need
