I would take the 03 and newer dodge with an old chevy frame and sheetmetal since the newer truck rust out so much faster.... the fords are great work trucks they handle being abused very well. both dodges have treated me very well. I have learned all vehicles break and they are all money pits its jst a matter of which one treats you the best! and in my case which one doesnt empty the bank account and drain my bottom line for the next 3 years

I jinxed myself! I blew the u-joint 2 more times today! 4 drive ways in it blew then 25 miles after that. changed out to another new joint this one is finally holding. Right after i fixed it the 3rd time I leave the garage 2 miles down the road I hit a frost heave and blew out the hydro line on my lift cylinder..... Everything is fixed again and I am going trck shpping very soon.
