Just wanted to see if anyone had an answer to this question. Not trying to start a ford vs. chevy debate either. Looking around for a new mason dump (currently run a '95 chevy 3500 mason dump) The Chevy 3500 dump is around $8000 to $10,000 cheaper than the ford F350 dump. Why? Mostly everyone around here is running the ford's as well....Am i missing something or does everyone pay an extra $10k for looks?
