Like all things....

Like all things in life, there are ups and downs. The Ford's have continued to beat Chevy's in the past. However, Chevy has come out and proven themselves over and over with their '11 models. There are many different opinions on here and everybody has their reason. You gotta look at the facts and the year models. Ford has won in years past but Chevy is winning this year in the HD range. They are both incredible trucks. Hands down. Go for your personal preference, you can't go wrong with a Ford or Chevy. Test drive the heck out of them.

Good luck finding the right one.

My truck out pulls, out towes, every truck in its class. And has more ground clearance, bigger brakes, bigger rear-end and more room than anyother truck close to $30,000-40,000. Why would I spend more to get less truck.
Does this look like a girlie truck. Think not!!!

I love the Tundras...I want a standard cab for my lawn truck.

And even if I had to spend a bit more I will still buy one...

My whole reason for buying one was it was the cheapest truck option for option and bang for buck.

Nah, but my mower cuts better, runs faster and is more reliable than any other mower on the planet. The Toyota I pull it with has 1,000,000 miles on it, not a single repair or oil change in its million miles.
