Am I missing something here? You are considering a brand new pickup for a dedicated 1 mile tow with a 10,000lb load, but it won't be your daily driver?

We have a 330ss with 350Mags, rated at 300 HP, but I've no idea how much torque or where the 300HP is on the RPM. I was disappointed in the idea of small blocks for this boat, but they really...

Had a bent spindle on one axle, likely due to hitting a curb at some point. It also caused odd tire wear. Simple thing to figure it out is to get your tape measure out and start measuring in all...

You are likely right about the garaged Mercedes, but most rust happens from under and from within body panels; that's an issue of quality coatings and design, not garaging.
