    ive got a ford, love em. gonna get a 250 later on in the year. i dont like that they tend to shift real hard sometimes, and they also shift when ever they feel like it. but their tough trucks! JMO

    I can say I never had a problem with a Ford because I have never owned one. Get a Chevy.

    I recommend you look at a dodge, I own a f250 and hate it. The front end problems, and I don't recommend the power stroke, If you don't want a dodge go with Chevy

    I have fords , chevy is OK, but Ford Motor Co is in a lot better position to be in business a few years from now.

    I have had pretty good luck with Chevy so that would be my reconmendation. I have seen a good amount of dodges with electrical issues and transmission problems. The fords diesel is new in 2008 the fuel economy is poor being less then 10mpg. I would either get a chevy or a ford with a gas engine in it.

    I just bought a Chevy but its just a half ton 4WD. I wont ever pull over 3000 with my business . You just cant beat a Chevy HD for heavy towing though. The ride is sweet too.

    Get a Chevy, doesn't matter what size or model but it will be better than a Ford. My Dad and I have had both and the Chevys are so much easier to work on and such a better ride, not to mention they look better lol.
