Get a dodge, that will be my next truck. The two dumps I've had were both fords and I wish I never got rid of the 97 couldnt kill the truck, and I really put it to work. But my 04 6.0 is nothing but issues. Last year I put $11,000 into it in what I consider non routine maitnance. Was actually at the dealership last night working out a deal on a new 3500 dodge. I've always had dodges for personal trucks, but everyone I know that uses them for work trucks says they are much better now, and there alot cheaper then ford it seems.
