I own a Chevy and love it, but if someone came out with a Ford F350 with a Cummins engine and Allison Transmission, I'd put my order in immediately.

In all seriousness they are all good trucks.

Can't buy that off the lot, but there sure are a lot of those around the house, just as you describe. Of course who knows how much $$ they have in those things.

I have been die hard ford truck guy,i had 3 f-250's ranging from a 460 big block,5.4 and 6.0 Diesel with Torqshift trans. However my father left me his 2500 Chevy 2500 with Duramax/Allison trans and I really cant complain other than the interior really isn't as nice as the fords.I've never owned a Dodge so I cant comment to much other than I hear of trans issues still.It's really personal choice anymore when your looking.They all do well towing and have lots of power.But if you own your truck outright I would just keep it

You are all right, they all make Great trucks. I do really Love my F250 and it pulls awesome. And its paid for with low miles, oh yea and never been driven in snow ether. As long as she don't give me problems I'll keep her. What oil do you guys use in your trucks. I use Amsoil good stuff. Still might test drive some new Desiel trucks just for comparison.

I run Shell Rotella T 15-40. Amsoil is good oil but for me the cost and having to order it isn't worth it.I run 5k oil changes and never have any issues

I haven't change the oil in the Chevy yet, but when we had our big trucks we ran Rotella and a gallon of Lucas oil treatment. We put a million plus miles on each truck before selling them. We ran Detroits and Cummins never a problem.

Where I live right now, I will only buy a Chevy from one of the 2 close by Chevy dealers. I've had problems with the other Chevy dealer and the Ford and Dodge dealers. However, I would not hesitate to buy a Ram or Ford if I trusted the dealers and they could match the Chevy dealer price with my GM Master Card discount. I buy more based on the dealer service department than the brand, although I've been very happy with the Chevy trucks I've owned.

Here's one comparison test of the 2015 one ton trucks. I'm sure you can find others with different results.

The dealer's reliability is really more important now than the brand of truck.. they all make good ones.. but a poor dealer makes the truck seem like manure.

I agree 100% Seann.
Just like buying a new camper a good dealer makes or breaks the after the sale experience.

I've always been a Blue Oval guy, guess it's mostly cause dad worked for Ford till about 1970 when they closed the assembly plant in Dallas. The F350 that we tow with is our first pickup and first diesel and I love it on both counts! Our 5th tips the scale at just under 13K# and the truck does a very nice job of moving us down the road.
