Who's gotten fed up and switched between the big three?

I was reading on another site about a guy stating that he was sure that just as many _____ owners have switched to _____ and vice versa. So to satisfy my curiousity I thought I'd start a poll and get some real numbers (although they are just a tiny snapshot of the big picture).

:rules:
So some rules. Please don't turn this into a brand war and no arguing!
Post in the poll if you:

have ever switched from one of the big 3's diesels to another's

drive one at work and through your experience's with it chose another brand (trying to keep this to first hand experience's, not "well dad drove one and it sucked so I chose this")

or if you've gone back and forth or had them all, just post which diesel engine you like the best-----please use this as a last resort as the object of this poll was to see what rigs people are coming from and what they chose instead :Thumbup:

So regardless of the results we all have trucks that'll yank a house off the foundation so be happy fella's

If I could only get my dmax back I could switch up to 7 days a week between at least 2 of the big 3. :

One day a ford, the other day a Cheby.... I just can't make up my mind. :shrug:


Next year it will be all three.

it may not be a d-max, but i'm fed up with chevy in general, their lack of choices in the option dpt. and their suspension setup, and I'm tired of 2 pedals, and GM's left me in the dark
