I have had both Fords and Dodges for diesel trucks. Still love the Dodges. I just haven't had the luck with the Fords.
Again it depends on the year..blah, blah, blah...
Hubby and I are on the truck hunt again. Today I test drove a '10 3500 Laramie....holy sh!t, that thing made my 06 5.9 look like a turd. Ridiculous power and still 18 mpg. A little fancy for my taste though.
I think the Chevys actually have a higher GVW than any other, Ford, than Dodge.(again depending on yr and model) But I have yet to have a truck hold up to the abuse. We were just talking about one of our old ranch pickups, a '00 Dodge 2500, that has withheld 4 ranches its entire lifetime and 400,000 miles, I am certain less than 75,000 of those were highway miles. My husband drove that truck new on one ranch and then we ended up with it a few years later on another that we worked on...lol.
So anyhow..you can tell I like my Dodges...LOL
I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.
