Ford vs Dodge?

Which brand of truck do you like better? Ford or dodge?

Well that really depends on how often you like to change out or fix your transmission. Ford doesn't hang on long.

We had Fords for years because my uncle worked there, so the whole extended family drove them to support him. We owned almost every car or truck they made throughout the years we had them.

We bought a Dodge Ram 1500 with a hemi engine two years ago and haven't looked back. Love my Dodge!

Lets just say I have owned 1 too many Dodge products over the years, never again.

At a place I used too work, they tried Dodge Trucks in their fleet, was not long till they changed to Ford and 10 years later they are still happy they changed.


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

It really depends on the year, model, engine, tranny...they have all had their lemmons.

I personally love a Dodge. They are the ones I have had the best luck with. Our '06 3500 has been through Hell and back, still going strong. My old 94 2500 I sold to the ranch when we left it has over 300K hard miles on it. Snow and mud for 6 months out of the year. Dirt roads and not many highway miles pulling a loaded stock trailer.
I always post this pic, but I will put it up again....ol red...

I love my Ford.

Hate the gas mileage!

2000 Ford F250 custom built at the factory for hauling. 178,000 miles and no trouble with the tranny. 7.3 diesel and it is loud. Have always owned Dodges before. Will still buy either one and just look for the best price.
