I hate to say it (since I've been a GM buy for years, and my dad worked for GM) BUT, if I were to buy a new truck that wasn't a Dodge Ram HD, it'd be a Super Duty Ford! Two words: SOLID AXLE!!! The solid axle frontend! I had a Chevy Silverado 2500HD Duramax with an Allison transmission, it was a fantastic truck, other than its Achilles heel, the IFS!

oh ya, as far as HD trucks go, I'd go Ford over Chevy for that reason. I remember when people used to say the perfect truck was a Ford body, Cummins motor with an Allison transmission lol

Not being able to drive a Ram assumes that someone could get my Ram out of my cold dead hands. Call me totally nuts, but if I can't drive a Ram, I'll pass. Driving my Dad's GMC makes me car sick. Driving my Brother's Ford F350 isn't much better, he's got a 7.3 diesel, it's loud, underpowered and get's 15-16 mpg. I'm sure the new Powerstrokes are better, but I'm about as interested in driving one or a F150 as hanging out in a gay bar or driving a Smart Car.

I honestly don't know. Fords look like a$$ but I feel are a more capable truck than the Chevy. The 2014 Chevys look awful too, but based on the experiences of friends and family (not my own because I'd never drive a non-ram) I believe Chevys are a more durable truck than Ford. For 2014 I'd say the GMC because it looks better than the Chevy and the double cab they'll be offering is similar to the quad cab which is IMHO perfect. All doors open independently but there is plenty of bed without too much cab.

I do like that Ford, A LOT!!

Had several F-150s and probably would have purchased another one, but the current design is in need of a makeover. The more modern Ram was the better buy this time, but I'd buy another Ford in a heartbeat.
