I'll take a Ford truck anyday. Don't care if they stack their comparisons (what company doesn't? Its called marketing).

When it comes to diesel trucks it runs Dodge>Ford>Chevy/GMC for me.

Maybe the newer trucks but if I bought a diesel I'd be buying a Ford used with the 7.3L in it

I'm talking about ALL trucks, not just the newer ones. I'm getting a 98 2500 Ram with the 5.9L when I get back from Iraq/Korea. Why? It doesn't have any electronic crap to fail on me making it easier to work on and more reliable.
