Smart. The GMer will crap out long before you have to worry about changing spark plugs!

And I've been told the same about Fords.

In all seriousness, I really did almost buy a Ford. When I was looking all the used ones were either really new and really expensive, or really old and in rough shape. It's amazing how well any truck holds it's value. The truck in my sig was affordable (for me) and in excellent condition.

I hear you get a free puppy when you buy a Ford now.
That way you don't have to walk home by yourself.

Never heard that one before. I don't know, though. I have a free cat and it's the most expensive free cat I ever owned- whether I'm walking home with or without her.

Must come from the old Found On Road Dead!

Talking just about diesel 350/3500s here, I've driven Chevy trucks and they ride like Buicks compared to Fords. And were very quiet compared to my Fords. But I just don't get Rams. 400,000 mile engine in a 100k body. Rough, noisy ride in my opinion. And not cheap. But the bottom line is, we live in truck country. A look over the WM parking lots will reveal a whole lot of Dodges, nearly as many Fords and very few Chevy's.

I did buy one of the very first '95 GMC 4-door Yukons and traded it for a '97 Expedition. Smaller than I was told it would be (I ordered six months before they were delivered) and it was put together poorly. Our rough road took a bigger toll on it in two summers than it has on all of our Expys.

I'm a diesel owner as well as your diesel proponent. I also used to own only gassers. The cost difference is 2 1/2 gallons per oil change vs 5 quarts, and a $35 fuel filter once a year. So I guess technically, you are correct. Other than that, I haven't spent any more on maintenance on my diesels than I did on my gassers.

For the diesel vs gas for towing argument, I will say that I would keep pulling with my diesel even if I went back to my old pop up trailer. It's just that much nicer to drive and pull with. Can't imagine ever towing with a gasser again, much less a 6 cylinder ego boost.
6 cylinder ego boost? How is a 6 cyl an ego boost ?

An "Ego Boost" (Ecoboost) is similar to a PowerJoke, Crummins, Whoretec and a number of other derogatory names for what their actual names (PowerStroke, Cummins, Vortec) are.

Ahh, makes sense now. School yard stuff.

Thx
