This might be alittle long, but please read and give whatever advice you can provide. I've narrowed down to Dodge and GM, and I am posting this at a couple of both Dodge and GM sites. I'm looking to buy a 2006 3/4 ton four door, 4wd, diesel, automatic truck. I've narrowed down to Chevrolet 2500 4wd crew cab, Duramax/Allison or a Dodge 2500 quad cab, 4wd, Cummins/48RE. I'll be using it to tow a landscape trailer that weighs 3k, but looking to upgrade to larger enclosed and possible skid steer in the future. I WILL NOT be lifting, bombing, etc. Only thing is maybe changing muffler to something a little louder. I maintain my vehicles very well also. I'm going from a 2004 Toyota Tacoma, so it'll be a BIG change either way. Dodge pros: CUMMINS - speaks for itself Solid front axle nice styling compact size better mileage Dodge Cons: 48re - 4 speed, but seems pretty reliable small quad cab - I don't like the looks of the megacab "rumors" of Dodge problems like trucks falling apart. I've never owned a Dodge, but put very little faith in this Chevy Pros: Allison bigger cab comfort Chevy cons: Duramax - 3 changes in 6 years, not a lot of history IFS same rumors as Dodge, depending on who you talk to. I'm not looking for brand wars, just honest information. ANYTHING that you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. BTW: I have 100% eliminated the Ford. Like the styling, but WAY too many problems with the 6.0.
