Don't think Dodge can be talked about when Chevy n Ford trucks are talked about. Chevy n Fords are light years ahead of Dodge trucks. Dodge trucks are pigs with lipstick(nice grille Dodge), Chevy n Fords are the real deal. Dodge did good with its outsourced diesel, but that doesn't make up for the rest of the package.

if dodge could put the effort they put into their recent exteriors into the interior, they would be awesome. I think the dodges look really badass right now.

I actually LOVE the way the Dodge looks/feels compared to the Chevy and Ford.

Not a fan of Dodge at all, but I do kind of like the Ram. Ford is a OK truck, can't stand the interior, looks cheap as heck. Ford makes a good farm truck, IMO. Chevy is a better looking truck.

in my 6 months making mirrors for ford we had 4 or 5 shutdown weeks due to them having issues with their engines, and this is between their excursion, expedition, escape, and their heavy duty pickups. mostly the first 3 I mentioned. It was ridiculous.

I think the new Power Wagon is extremely sexy, but I think that'* about as far as it goes. I have driven a new 1500 Ram 4x4 Hemi, and been a passenger in a 2011 Silverado 1500 4x4 with the 5.3L and 2011 F150 4x4 with the 5.0L. I honestly have to say that I like the Ram the most out of all 3, and they were all optioned essentially the same. The Ram had the shifter in the console, dual exhaust, and had a couple more options than the other two, but for some reason felt much, much better. This comes from a guy who has never liked dodge trucks in the past.

If I ever get a truck I will be customizing my own exhaust, dual straights off the cats is the only way to go.

If you get a Chevy you won't be doing that unless you wanna pay a lot of money. Chevy decided it'* a good idea to make the cat'* part of the manifolds so it'* a pain in the *** to get up in there without hacking things to pieces.

I had a excursion, pulled a 27' travel trailer. Was told when I bought it, it will have no problems pulling, had the towing package. It was a dog, didn't get up to speed, trailer pushed it all around, didn't like it. Before that I had a Bravada, much smaller. But it pulled the same trailer way better. After I got rid of the Ford I used my brother inlaws Ram. I hardly knew the trailer was back there. The Ram was the best puller I ever drove. Like I said, not a Dodge guy, but I do like the Ram.
