    Chevy 99-2003 Z71 BEST pickup to haul ever!! I owned one before I moved and it pulled a three slant trailer fine... we have had three horses in it, up to 4000 lbs in hay, a load of cattle, this truck is awesome.. and you can get a nice used one for around 8000-10000....

    I'd say go with a Dodge 1500, or even a 2500 if you can find a cheaper used one. We have one of each, and the 1500 does a pretty good job pulling our 16ft stock (usually carrying three horses). I can't say for sure how it'd do in a hilly area, though; we live in a steeper portion of Iowa, but I'm not sure that's comparable, as I've never been to PA. The gas mileage isn't bad -- I drive it all through winter and the better portion of Spring. I think I get around 20-22MPG, doing a lot of backroads and off-roading, as well as highway.

    We have a 2003 F350 6.0 - DO NOT GET ANYTHING with a 6.0 in it by Ford. It's been a nightmare!!!!!!!! 2003 and EARLIER 7.3L is the best engine you can get IMO.

    Ford F250 it'll haul a 2 horse and more, I can barely feel that i'm hauling anything with my old heavy steel 2 horse hooked up to it even with my 1500lb draft cross along for the ride. Dependable, sturdy, and ford's crash saftey is remarkable, a 1999 ford expedition saved my life, we hit the rear end of a snow plow after coming out of a whiteout (doing about 45mph) . . . After the collision the engine compartment was no more than 3ft, it had just totaly folded in on itself, ford vehicles are the ones I trust the most.

    LOVE my barn owner's F250 in maroon. :] Not sure how cheap it was. I think it was a 2005. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. That thing could pull anything.
