Chevy, Dodge, Ford, it don't matter, they all break the same way. You need to get your wife off the brand loyalty kick. It's just a hunk of metal the depreciates, it's not a pet.
Dodge's only pit-fall is they never built a good truck around the Cummins. They might be better now, but they really messed up in the nineties and hurt their rep.
