    I am a GM fan. They are easy to work on. one thing to consider is the price of parts. if you compare gm, dodge, and ford the ford will be more costly for parts. dodge seemed like they had tranny problems for a long time. don't get me wrong ford make a nice truck as long as it doesn't break down.

    Need more info??? New? Used? If used you need to research the quality Vs. Cost?

    New - do your homework, decide on features you want/need, drive both and shop for the best deal. Start low and see how the dealer responds.

    A good deal on a used vehicle can be the deciding factor such as low miles, hard use, tire life left, maintenance, etc... Brand really doesn't matter if you are saving a few G for the same like kind and quality but getting a lame color or some such thing.

    New - a couple grand will not hurt so much over time when compared to: "I wish I would have gone extended cab, long bed, 3/4 ton, etc.." A couple grand over five years is a little more payment but unhappy with your choice over 10 years SUX!!

    It's like choosing between inadequate and substandard. . .
