I've owned a few Ford trucks and liked them just fine. My current truck is a Chevy and I like it too. At the time I bought it the price was $3000 less than a comparable Ford. I don't have a problem with Dodge, but none of the local Dodge dealers had anything to offer a commercial buyer. You want a cowboy Cadillac loaded up with worthless bells and whistles, they had lots of those. I couldn't find a truck built for a working guy (plain Jane) on any of the local Dodge lots.

ive owned both fords and chevys throughout my life. ive had a lot better luck with fords than I have chevys for reliablity. So i would have to say ford which i currently own with zero problems. never owned a dodge or any foreign truck.

My dad's been a Ford salesman for about 20 years now, I'm 26 so most of my life has been around Ford trucks.
No surprise but I've never owned anything but a Ford!

Toyota makes the best truck to date, but the second best truck is Ford in my opinion (don't buy ford cars!). Never have good luck with Chevy and Dodge, they seem to be playing second fiddle no matter what. The resale value of Chevy and Dodge is horrible, loosing money like water.
You can't go wrong with either Toyota & Ford.
