I know that this will stir up a hornets nest, but being the Redneck Republican that I am, I must do my constitutional duty and tell my point of view on something, since my point of view is always correct! (Another nest, another day, lol) I have always thought that the Ford Powerstroke was the most incredible thing on the market for heavy duty pickup truck using guys, hereby referred to as "True Rednecks." BUT, yesterday I test drove one of the new Chevy DURAMAX powered trucks. I was absolutley awestricken by the abundance of power, seems like leaps and bounds over the powerstroke. I have never driven a pickup w/ so much power. Even back during the days when 454's had headers and real carburetors with 4bbl. Hopefully it will continue to deliver that power even after 200,000 miles or so, and still stay together. So, during during your holiday time off, grab the old lady, get a bag of popcorn, and head to your nearest Chevy/GMC dealer and tell them that "Mowin4cash sent ya", and that you want to experience the MONSTER WITHIN!!!!!!!!!
