Boy, will that open a can of worms!!!!! If Ford would make a truck, with the Cummins engine, and the Allison Transmission, that would be a truck! I think every truck has their strong and weak points. For example, Ford trucks had problems with rear main seals, and cam shaft sensors. Cummins had problems with transmissions in their 04-06 trucks. GMC had problem with injector pumps at first. I think by now, all the problems should be solved. I would suggest you research them all, drive them all, then pick out which is best for you. I have a friend who has a Duramax, and loves it. He likes my Dodge because it pulls harder then his truck. But, his truck rides better then mine. Good luck.
