    We have been a ford truck family. My dad has never owned a truck that hasnt been one and I will be the same. We have not had many major problems and the trucks do get beat on pretty bad from farm type work.

    CHEVY, CHEVY, CHEVY all the way. We have a Chevy and Ford. NEVER had problems with the Chevy, but the Ford will never start. Dodges in my opinion are crap. Sorry. Just what I've always noticed. Chevys, like the moto, truly are built to last. Fords maybe second.

    We need to specifiy. Are we talking diesel or gas?

    Ahem.

    Diesel motor wise Cummins is the best which BTW Dodge does not "own" cummins is their own company, Ford puts the 8.6L cummins in their 650's. Also in 2011 Ford is comming out with their OWN motor a 6.4L that is supposed to replace the Powerstroke because Navistar (who built the powerstoke) and Ford's contract was torn up. Ford has the BEST diesel motors "powerstroke" from 1994-2003. From 2003 up they have been having computer related problems. Also the Tritan V-10's have been catching fire. (Which is a gas truck). I think the very best motor of all time was the 7.4L Powerstoke, it held up threw anything and you could put 300k + miles and it still would run lke a charm. Too bad they don't make them anymore. Chevy is too expensive in general. They have decent motors but they are expensive to buy, to fix, to modify.

    Body wise. Dodge is crap, they fall appart and rust away. I have a 93 Ford that only has a few rust spots. If it was a Dodge my feet would be going threw the floor. Chevy is already but they can't take as much pounding as a Ford. Plus I personally think Chevy's are ugly ;]

    I like Ford. Always have, always will

    I have no opinion on the subject as I have absolutely no need for a truck but this thread reminded me of something my sister told me that I thought was funny. Ford stands for fixed or repaired daily.

    TOYOTA HANDS DOWN!!!!!!! Best dam truck out there. *coughs* but since I can only choose from ford dodge or chev. I go with the chevy. Dodge's are sh!t and "tinny" if you know what I mean. Toyota has a flexible frame and is good for off roading and has blistine shocks. Chev's are made more for the road rather than the"off" road. Jmo tho

    I am a dodge guy and I love the Cummins engine, But I wouldn't have one without a manual transmission in it.

    I don't hate Chevy's but I don't like not having an option on transmissions, And I don't like that GMC is 60% owned by the US government and taxpayers

    I don't know Fords that will, I have drove them and I just don't like them for some reason.
