    I would of picked Dodge but you didn't have that option. The 2500 can tow almost 11,000lbs witht he HEMI.

    For me it's a 50-50 thing. I think Chevy has the best powertrain, at least in the gas end. I would rather have the 6.0 V8 over the 5.4 V8 and the 8.1 V8 over the V10. I like the Allsion tranny, too, even though I have heard good things about the new Ford tranny. Diesels are close, but I think you can do more with the Powerstroke.

    I like the soild front axle of the Ford. Easy to bulk up, good for plowing. I like the looks of both, but give the edge to the Chevy just because I like the overall size and shape.

    Ideally, put a solid front axle on my Chevy and you have the ideal truck.

    I like Ford & Dodges because from my experience they hold a plow better than any chevy I owned except the older chevys with straight front axle that I had.
