    Fords are better made...

    Look at the frame, contruction, materials and design.

    not that I am biased or anything :big grin:

    You're probably going to start a flame war, but if I were you, I'd go to the local library and look at the consumer reports for vehicles and compare the two for a few years and see what they say.

    I had less problems with my Chevy than my Ford.

    And the Chevy had double the mileage.

    agreed.

    if i were looking for a truck a 91 Comanche would be the only domestic on my list.

    I would say chevy duramax...proven motor (designed by izuzu so not domestic) and in the 3/4 ton flavour you get the 1 ton running gear )14 bolt rear end :bowdown:) and an allison tranny. and if any of it doesn't seem stout enough for you BDS can replace drivetrain components with killers...

    If mine had a better warranty I might still own it.

    Everything started breaking after warranty was up.

    They changed the remaining 06's and 07s to bumper to bumper 5/60

    This tells me that Ford has made a committment to quality with these trucks. The design and materials used says a lot.. this is a tough truck.

    Yah GM splits their sales among two names. :noes:

    I had a Mustang, not a truck.

    I'll give their trucks a decent durability rating as the summer camp I used to work at had an F250, F350 stakebed, and an E350 Van. The F350's been serving out there for 6 years now with minimal problems, and the other two have had 3 years... and we're hard on the trucks.
