Looking to buy 06-08 diesel, need some advice.

Hey all, So I'm looking to get into a new-er diesel truck and was just looking for some opinions/advice on the major 3. So what do you guys think of the Chev, ford, or dodge 3/4 - 1 tons?

what will you be using the truck for?

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

light towing, daily driver, and something to tune out.

I like them all...

brand loyality tells me to go with the 6.7...

looks, ride, and comfort tell me DirtyMax...

but im really impressed with the numbers of the 6.4, but i dont think they are God's gift to diesel engines...

If I had to pick though Id probably go with a LMM Dura...

I'll vote Chevy based on your answer.

if he was doing heavy towing and some wheeling, I'd say Ford.

And by the way... the top vote getter WILL be a Ford, since this is a FORD dominated site.

I would say an 07.5+ Dodge. I test drove the 6.7L 6spd and fell in love, I drive LMM's at work daily and hate them. Haven't driven a Furd as I'm not really a big fan, don't have anything bad to say though. Although lifted a couple inches and put some mudders on there and they look pretty good.

2007 Chevrolet 3500 SRW CrewCab Longbed, PPE Modded AirBox, Edge Evo Race level 4.

***SOLD***2001 Dodge 2500 CTD Quadcab Longbed SRW, Straightpiped, BHAF, no silencer ring.
