I know what you mean there. plus ca smog sucks so I wanted to avoid that and went with a 95. 12v reliable and no electronic issues plus number 6 lives a longer lifeI bought the ford because I got it for 8700 bucks thats why. An 08 crew cab long bed. If dodge would make a real four door and go back to the 5.9 i would buy a dodge. As far as the 12v goes i can do a lot of the work myself and im not looking for 1000 hp. Just a new truck with a real motor that will laste me another 15+ years.
