02 Dodge 2500 cummins with 5 speed tranny. I love this truck. Engine is smooth and powerful. 19-21 mpg with no trailer, and pulls like a dream. My only regret is not getting 4wd.

Metro, I'm real partial to the first gen Cummins trucks too.. sure wish I could find one that I could afford, that was clean.
May peace and blessing from the LORD be with you, Fellow Hot Rod Freaks!!

I've owned an F150 and a Silverado, and like someone mentioned earlier, they are pretty neck-and-neck other than the crappy transmission that the Fords use these days. To be honest, it is still mostly personal preference. Where one company accels, another may not......and vice versa.
