I have seen them in black and silver. Silver would be my first choice. Black would be my second choice.

Here's a question that could ignite yet another tow truck controversy. I know you have a Dodge RAM truck. WHY are they so much less popular/common than Chevy's or Fords? (I do like your folding tow mirrors!) Comment?

I'll take a stab:

They aren't. Not when a one ton is the primary way to earn a living. And not for the past twenty years due to both the motor and the manual transmission being more reliable and less costly to operate in a Dodge. LTL and hotshot. The oilfield separates the wannabes from the must haves quickly. 3-4 years at 300k miles and time to buy another. Loads 10k past the so called "rating". Only one brand was capable 1994-2014.

This may change due to Fords new motor. In the past twenty years Ford only got it right in one four-year period. Six speed autos changed the game, but the expense of rebuilding them PLUS the more complicated emissions controls have made them all more expensive to buy, own and operate. So I'm starting to see other choices made for that crowd of operators.

RVers are about the only ones for whom the first choice is GM. Ride quality and ergonomics is the usual reason cited.

Chevy and Ford aren't necessarily better, but there are far more of them in any specification and truck buyers tend to stick with what Daddy drove. Not a group given to analysis, much. And those two brands just have more money to spend on glitz and advertising.

RV is such light duty use that brand doesn't matter. I'd focus on suspension and steering sophistication first, and general impressions second.

IFS with sensitive steering is tops for our needs.

Paula, the short whelbase/stiff suspension/very small V8 were all issues with it. The coup de grace was when a girl in a Nissan car ran a stop sign, and I remodeled her car for her. So, now it's just the F250.
