Hey guys, I stopped my my dealer today to check things out. all and all I'm pretty sure I'm going w/ the ford w/ a SNG bed, the lcf vs the mitfuzo built sterling (though a great truck) is hands down ford in way of shear power and heavy dutyness. the ford's frame, breaks, tie rod, springs, rim were all bigger. i took it for a spin and even w/ that massive box (drag city) it drove really well. the cab was better contracted, though the sterling had more leg room (likely due to the smaller tires and rims) but sine I'm not driving it, and the crew that will won't be going long distances I don't care all that much. ford seats were much nicer with full sized seats for everyone, much safer in my opinion to have a full seat instead of the half backs. and the kicker is the ford (w/ rebats and such, is less expensive, so my mind is pretty much made up.
