Ford's are cheap, that's why some many companies have them. I love Dodge, but they are over built so they have the lowest mpg, but if it's only a work truck it's worth it. A Chevy should be cheaper than a GMC and they have the same parts.

Most likely a Chevy, not a Ford if your plowing. Just my opinion, I drive a 2006 GMC 2500hd crew cab 6.0L gas and get 10mpg. I am going to take the tailgate off tomorrow to see if it helps any.

Dodge all the way. Especially if you get into diesels. Cummins enough said. Have a buddy with a 08 stroker had less then 100xxx on it engine blew. THis is the 6.7 L and we all know the problems of the 6.0 strokers. Chevy isn't to bad and the allison is pretty awesome but overall ill take a dodge

No, that would be the 6.4 L if its an 08'. The 6.7 Ford came out in the 11' models.

I'd have to go with Ford, tried a GMC and the front end squatted pretty hard with a 9' Fisher. As far as ride GMC/Chevy, work truck, Ford.

Couple facts.....

Fact 1. Fords Suck.

Fact 2. Chevys Suck.

Fact 3, Dodges don't Suck.

So with that said, Buy a Dodge unless you want to Suck.
