Around here we love our Toyotas!!! We use Chevy's and sometimes Dodges for towing. Fords and Jeeps are on the bottom of the list. I asked oneof my friends who had a Ford why he hated it and he said "I can't unFord it". I love Toyota and wouldn't trade it for anything :)

I'm a Chevy guy, I just love Chevy trucks. IMO there the best truck on the market. I have two Chevy's, a 2011 Chevrolet 1500W/T: just regular cab, long bed, 4x2 with the 4.3L V6. It's my daily driver so I don't need a big engine and the 4.3L V6 is the most reliable trouble free gas truck engine GM has. Also I get through the snow just fine without four wheel drive. I have almost 52,000 miles and have not had one single problem with this truck, not one!
Also have a 2006 Chevy 2500HD with the Duramax Diesel, it's a crew cab with the 6.5ft bed. It has four wheel drive, I could careless about cause I park it in the winter. So I don't need it and want to keep the salt off it. I just bought it cause I got such a good deal on it. (Reason was GM up the power levels in 2006 the early 2006's have 310hp and 605lb-ft of torque, where's the later 2006's have 360hp and 650lb-ft of torque) So folks wanted the higher hp one and I could careless, so I saved several thousand.
I have nearly 120,000 miles on this truck and only time it was in a shop was for a recall to reprogram the glow plug controller when it was six months old, That's it period!! Only thing I had to put into this truck is a set of tires, shocks(put on Bilstin's) replaced fluids and filters. Heck even the brakes are still good on this truck. I bet they will last well over 150,000 miles. I also have a B&W turnover gooseneck hitch. This truck pulls trailers like a dream, I pull trailers from Wisconsin to Florida and back.
I bought both trucks brand new and thankfully both are paid for, I do all my own maintenance work. I want them to last me well over ten years and atleast 300,000 miles.

I have always loved my Chevy's. Born and raised. However, I ended up with a Dodge truck and will probably stick with them.
I LOVE my 1968 Chevy Chevelle though!

I've had my Dodge for two years and haven't had a lick of issues yet... Although I only have 40,000KM on it. LOL

This is my Chevelle, still a work in progress:



And my old Pontiac G6 GTP - wonderful car, big 3.9V6 six speed... Was awesome.

All Chevrolet in my yard!! Mine is a 93 silverado, 1500, 350 vortec, it's TBI, but it's got 17" bullet hole wheels, 35" tires, a 3" Susp. Lift, 2" body lift, two 12" subs, 750 watt amp, Infinity highs, Old Skewl boxed 6x9's, a PA horn, and speaker.... Witch is soooooo FUN!! Pretty good in the mud, I've only had er' stuck a few times.... And the gas millage is pretty great, for having such big tires on it.

Well, we do have a Ford.... It's only cool, because it's a Dump Bed....


I'm interested what's under the hood of that 68 chevelle...... 396, or 350?.... Or neither? Lol

Neither...lol
I did have a 350 in it, but turns out it ended up being seized, so we just put a 305 to get it around the yard.
I'm sort of thinking 383 Stroker but...nothing is set in stone for it yet. She's still a work in progress. :)
