    Then it's not always a case of Ford trying to catch up to GM. All three have been jockeying for position since their inceptions.

    Ford catching GM or dodge catching ford and so on. I still like the interior of the Gm better. Had all 3. Buddies of mine have all the new 3/4 dodge - we ride in each other trucks all the time. I just wonder what toyota will do - 3/4 ton or not.

    Ford,GM and dodge dominate this area,quite a few cabovers as well. You do see toyotas but they never seem to be pulling a machine or maint. trailer or plowing snow. In other words, you see them, you just dont see them working! Perhaps that will change when their diesel hits the market?

    It's going to be well into 10K I bet. Have you posted about the problems with your 6.4? What's the deal?

    I read in the wall street journal that ford is looking around $10 - $12K for the 3/4 ton truck - fully loaded. Ford has not yet announced offically what the sticker shall be.

    Business associates of ours that are running the 6.4 dont get very good mpg. Im going on record right now, saying this new ford will not get the mpg of the duramax lmm engine! When i cruise the highway i average 18 mpg @ 1500 rpm. I could see 20 if i slowed down to 60 mph and removed my tailgate!
