This would look pretty good for towing the trailer. It even matches. Too bad I think my wife would divorce me :(

Pardon my ignorance. Is this any more expensive than purchasing a new truck?

a lot cheaper, actually. Something like that can often be had for $8-$15k.

Dis is why I like old trucks! Simplicity, price, and (with a bit of investment) reliability!

I heavily modified a 97 F350 diesel and even with all I had to do to it maintenance and upgrade wise it is still cheaper than getting a newer model.

Get a used Ford truck that fits within your budget. They are indestructible.

Pitch her about the $40K truck you need to purchase to pull the trailer. Then complain about option 2 (Used - $8K-$15K option) as if you really wanted the new one, but are willing to settle.

Rub onion in your eye if necessary.

Ingredients
• 4-6 medium cucumbers, or 8-10 small pickling cucumbers
• 4 cups water
• 2 cups white vinegar
• 8-12 cloves of garlic
• 6 tablespoons of pickling/canning salt or non-iodized kosher salt
• A few sprigs of fresh dill, or substitute with 2 tablespoons of dill seed
• 1 teaspoon coriander seed
• 1 teaspoon celery seed
• 1 teaspoon mustard seed
• 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
• 2 Hungarian hot wax peppers

Directions

Start by bringing the water to a simmer in a saucepan. While the water is heating, peel the garlic. For a subtle garlic flavor, use 8 cloves (4 in each jar). Use more for a stronger garlic flavor. Leave the cloves whole. Once the water is up to a simmer you can add the garlic and cook for about five minutes. While the garlic is cooking, prepare your cucumbers by slicing into quarters lengthwise for spears, or cut thin chips. After the garlic has cooked for five minutes, add the vinegar and salt and bring to a boil until the salt is dissolved and then remove from the heat.

In two one-quart canning jars (wide-mouth jars work best for this) add the fresh sprigs of dill and remove the garlic from the pan and distribute equally in both jars. Then divide the remaining spices between the two jars. If you want a touch of heat, add one Hungarian hot pepper, halved lengthwise, to each jar. Next, take the cucumbers and pack them tightly into each jar. Bring the brine back up to a boil and pour immediately into both jars, filling very close to the very top so that the cucumbers are completely covered.

Let cool to room temp and then refrigerate overnight. They are really good after sitting overnight, but amazing after another day or two.

Thanks so much!!! I stayed up until 3 am reading through this post last night while my brisket was cooking.

I really want to make these pickles as I have tons of cucumbers coming in and we have been throwing them out because we can't eat them fast enough

Forgive me, but I've never seen a Hungarian Hot Wax pepper in the grocery store... I'm going to look tomorrow, but is there a reasonable substitution pepper that wouldn't change the flavor profile too much?

Thanks in advance!

Default Maybe a little barter

Maybe, set up a swap with a local dealer. Provide an attractive lunch one Saturday a month in exchange for a truck. Cross advertise and maybe a winner? Maybe he also has football tickets and needs a little catering in the fall?

Just saying...

Banana peppers?
I think this may be the southern name for the wax pepper.
They vary in heat, from about 1000 on the Scoville scale, to maybe 15,000.

Just an FYI, not the same as a banana pepper.

Hungarian wax pepper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You can buy seeds to try also, found this with a google search,

I think either of these would lend more credibility to you and your business than a new truck. It just seems to say (to me at least) that you don't mind working hard to maintain a superior product in the face of mass produced garbage.

Also, for what its worth, I'd take the Chevy.
