Gas or Diesel? The 2013 Rams won't even be available until Feb or March of next year.

Gas solely because I can work on it myself. Are you sure about that I test drove a ram today that I was told was a 13? Maybe I misunderstood? It had no window sticker and dealer told me it was because it just arrived and was a 13 I thought.

Well since the ram 2500 2013 isn't out till who knows, i'd say Ford F250. Chevy's truck design is quite old now. I like what they are claiming about the next Ram 2500 but an all new design with a Dodge name is not something i'd be first in line to test out.

The 2013 1500 Rams are available.

I would go with the 6.2 Ford F250 in a gasser.

Chevy is outdated and not as much leg and head room as the F250.

The Hemi in a Dodge is underpowered for a 3/4 ton truck IMO.

I have never owned a Ford 6.2 or a Chevy 6.0 but my Ram 5.7 Hemi has more than enough power.

I pull a 16' open and a 8.5X20 enclosed. With no trailer it's a blast to drive.

Maybe they have raised the hp on them. A friend of mine had an 08' model that I pulled my tractor and 10' cutter with on a 24' GN last year. It struggled and had to keep the rpms high to stay at 60 to 65. My dad has a 6.0 GMC it pulls it with no problem. A neighbor of mine recently traded a 6.0 for a 6.2 Ford. He said it has a little more power than the 6.0 but not much.
I havent actually looked up the numbers on any of them. I've never trusted the numbers anyway.

Ford dealer here is no good no discount offered for business owner or anything. Looking at the Chevy also found a 11 cummins for a great price with only 12 k on it
