I've owned all three, and I would have to say for hauling you can't beat a Dodge, although I give kudos to Chevy's dirty max. If they weren't still trying to scam people to make up for their debt, I would have had one, but I went Dodge. Don't regret it, but I'm still a Dirty Max person.
I won't ever touch a Ford again. I'd go hook up a trail riding line to get my new ponies home before I wasted more money on a ford, but that's just me.
Dodge's issues is they need to build the truck aroudn the engine. As much as I love my Dodge, I'm waiting for front end issues. LOL
Chevy's are superb, love that Dirty Max, again with the issues around the engine. I wouldn't do a gas job Chevy, but I would a diesel.

So, I would have to say Dodge, then Chevy. ;)

the duramax is a good running diesel. the problem tho is on the lb7 duramax, the injectors are garbage. the lly's run hot. thought i was goin to blow 2 up plowing snow. the lbz's are pretty good. rods are a little weak, but not an issue till you start reaching big hp numbers. parts prices are rediculous on duramaxes. the performance shop i work for runs dmaxes, about the same amount of money bullet-proofing my 6.0 as they did on injectors.

up to 08, i recommend duramaxes for people pulling campers or anything along those lines long distance. the ifs makes for good ride quality and up till then, with the LT package, the interior was top notch. in 08 ford stepped up their game on the interior, so after that its debatable. as far as work, jobsites and fields beat up the ifs parts pretty quick.

I've driven dodges and fords both and can honestly say I'll keep my 2011 ford 350 any day. Designed/Ordered it straight from the factory, and picked it up the day it was at the dealership in July 2011. Betty is my baby. I can't say she gets the greatest mpg, but not as bad as some I've driven/seen. I have had 1 transmission problem, but it was just one of those freak things and had to replace a cylanoid. I've got 21,733 miles UNDER A TRAILER, and 121,461 total miles on it, just in a year. To say the least I've put her through hell and she came back growling.

delete the dpf and get a good custom tune and you'll get a pretty good increase in fuel mileage
