I guess if I were climbing the rockies with heavy loads, then I might consider a chevy....but I don't, and I have beaten the piss out of Fords and they have treated me well. As I'm sure many Chevy drivers will say.....so, go with best dealer support, and the little things that you like better.

Between my dad's Dodge and my Ford. I've ran the crap out of my Ford and nothing stops it. Towed loads way to heavy for it, and just ran it really hard in general. I think Ford makes one of the best work trucks out there.

Got to say I love my NEW 2010 Toyota Tundra. Alot more truck for alot less Money! And I have always been a Ford Man. But Couldn't see paying 6K more for less truck with less options.
