I get another Dodge. I've owned 2 Fords, and they both nickel and dimed me to death. Most of the money that has gone into the Ram, has been on BOMBs, not repairs.

Sold- '99 3500 Q/C, SO CTD, 4x4, 5spd.

I went through this process when I bought my current truck. The Dodge Ram was my second consideration at that time and probably is now again. This is based on what is available in North America with a diesel engine.

The hypothetical, what would I buy given unlimited funds? I have no idea.

2004 F-350, 4x4, SC, LB, 6.0PSD, 6spd
Changed a few things. More than some, less than others

I dont like the Chevy due to its independent front suspension on 4x4's. And Dodge does not make a real truck. By that I mean you can either get a long bed 4 door and have small back seats or you can get the mega cab and have a short bed. Only Ford offers what I want.

Segway Way better than the GM/DC options in my opinion, and slightly better than walking.
