That 250 of yours will move the weight that's not an issue. I own a small excavation company w/ 2 skids, 2 ex's (10,000lb, 16,000lb),20,000lb dozer,
'91 F800 single axle dump, '94 F-superduty dump, '99 F-250, my '01 350, And an '06 Denali. And out of all of them i drive my 350 every day, pulling a trailer
(i'll pull everything i described minus the dozer), running around to bid work, to picking up groceries!! It's just flippin' practical. Moral of the story is that if you already own the dump trailer and the skid-steer, i'd beef up the truck (tranny) and run with it.
Buying new trucks is always awesome, however thats about 500-1000 more dollars in overhead per month just to have the new truck. I woud use the one you've got until it dies (which could be never) and at the same time i'd be putting an extra 300-500 per month in a savings account until i had a killer down payment! Well thats all just my opinion but good luck with your endeavors.............. -fast_ashley
