    I'm still undecided as to which one I like more...guess I'll just have to try both out.

    Titan:
    -Sounds like it would feel a bit more sporty driving around.
    -Like the bed liner, bed channel system and lower lockbox.
    -King cab gets those slick double hinged rear doors.
    -Can't quite understand the reasoning behind the window/lock switch placement...seems like it would be a bit too easy for thieves to unlock the doors.

    -Offroad package gets rid of all the gaudy chrome up front and replaces it with much better looking body coloured pieces, but the package also gives you those god awful BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain tires...I guess it's a net gain.

    F-150:
    -Sounds less powerful, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's lacking.
    -Interior fit/finish sounds much better.
    -Brakes sound great.
    -Steering doesn't.
    -Sounds less capable off road.

    I guess in a years time when I'm in the market, most of the quirks and recalls both these companies are bound to have will be revealed...maybe the decision will be obvious one way or the other.

    Money magazine selected the new F-150 as one of it's top five vehicles of the year, I may post that article later.

    I would get the F150 in a heartbeat, of course I already own one just not the new one. Definetly wait a year and let them work out the bugs.

    THat is a weird place to put lock and window switches.

    I would have to guess that they would be happy just to get a slice of it no matter how small it is.
