Is that 20,000 as in twenty thousand or is it two hundred thousand miles? If It's really 20,000 actual original miles I would choose the 150. My 2001 Tacoma 4x4 has 23,000 on it, but that's only because I drive other cars in rotation. It's very seldom that a car that old has that low of miles. The grill guard is truck jewelry, and has nothing to do with being reliable. On average a flat bed truck can have some pretty hard miles put on it.And as far as better mileage, i would assusme that the 150 would. Check out the spects. via internet, You'll be able to see any recalls and other red flags. It is always a good idea to have the truck checked out by a mechanic, it is real easy to rip someone off.
