After reading all the posts, maybe I better take a second look at Dodge trucks instead of just a perception/ pre-judgement in the back of my mind. Always thought they sold because of the grill and with options, often 1-2k less than a Chevy or Ford. This thread demonstrates that Dodges may be very good trucks.
Great Grandad had a 1940 Dodge Dually pickup (farm truck) that ran until his death in 1983. Had a little box of a bed, neat looking for a farm truck... Truck actually had a small footprint, very unlike today'* monster dually *.
