    I have a question on your opinion between Chevy or Ford going with date models 2000 and up.

    IMO, Chevy for gas, and if your plowing, but ford for the diesel !! I run both, but have had tranny trouble with the ford's. Have a F-450 in the shop now, is a 2003, 22,000 on it :angry:

    Must be the old 4 spd 4R100......The new torqueshift 5R110 auto is a mighty fine piece of engineering.

    The this or that one questions are always funny. They both make good trucks. Both have loyal fans, both have their problems, and both have users that will never buy another one because of some problem their last one had/has. I suggest going test drive both and just buying the one you like most. If you are looking at a diesel, there are some good web sites (like this one for lawn/landscaping) that you can research for specific problems, I dont know if their are any for gassers.
