None of the above, I run a 4.7 Dakota and until I need to start pulling heavy loads, I love how handy it is compared to those 10 ft tall truck beds on the full sized's.

Most of the time a '07 Silverado 2500HD with Vortec 6.0 simply because it's easier on fuel than my '07 F-350 Powerstroke dump.

Starting this year with a Silverado. The jury's still out on how it's going to handle things but we'll find out. Switched from ford, no particular reason, just a good deal on a badly needed vehicle. I'm hoping not to END the season pulling with the same thing. We'll see how it goes!!
