You've heard the joke too? "The best thing about a Dodge truck is the Cummins engine, and the worst thing about the Cummins engine is the Dodge truck."

Having had both GM and Dodge trucks thru the years, I can honestly say I've not actually had troubles with either one. That's not to say either one is perfect, because they are not, and there's things I would change about every one I've had.

However, I've test driven several Ford trucks, 150 and 250, and my bad back absolutely will not tolerate the seats in a Ford. They are probably good trucks otherwise, but can't take the seat.

There again, you can't satisfy everyone because I would just put the Cummins in the GM. That would be perfect for me.

Nope, a Ford diesel, the 6.7, with a Torqueshift tranny (proven to be better than an Allison) will sell, and beats all comers hands down. My how this thread has deteriorated from an F-150 post. A lot of anger out there.

Wow, I post about a 2013 EcoBoost Crew Cab and 2011 Super Duty and because I like a Ram 2500 more I'm not allowed to post in this thread and express an opinion based on actual ownership?

I buy the best vehicles for myself not because of the brand loyalty but research, reviews and ownership.

Sorry if I didn't go Ford on this choice, but more sorry for even debating such a goof-ball "biased" topic..

Hi, John; You are not allowed to post on this thread because you only had your F-150 for four days. Just kidding. We love your honesty, so keep posting.

Please show us a copy of that "proven to be better than an Allison".

Nice features, just like the Alison has nice features, but in no way does it support or substantiate your claim, "proven to be better than an Allison".

Looks to me like Ford's attempt to catch up with the Allison.

The Duramax and Allison are already proven.

Have you checked the recalls and TSB's on Dodge and Chevy's lately? I did not start this thread for a truck wars. The numbers speak for itself and Ford sells more trucks than all others. Just because you find some 4 year old video where a Chevy beat a Ford, isn't going to sway anyone to change from a Ford to a Chevy. Actually, if I wasn't such a Ford fan, I'd be a Toyota fan; the Tundra is an awesome truck.
