    :cool: Been thinking about dumping my exploder for a pickup, leaning more towards a Taco though. Supercrew come with a sunroof option?

    I guess I didnt add that when they took my Maxima to get appraised some 80yo lady backed into the side of it while the salesguy was taking it over there :noes:
    They worked me a good deal, I got almost NADA for a trade in and knocked a bunch off my payment and insurance went down.

    :nono:

    Titan/Tundra > Silverado > Ram > F-150

    Ram has the best motor. But we're talking real trucks here, not toys :o

    Titan = has power, but worst truck on the market per consumer reports. Quality is horrible, my friend had a Titan and had first break job at 6000miles, he dumped it.

    Tundra is a good truck, I really like the 07, but coudlnt waited till they come out.

    Overall design (larger frames and outboard mounted shocks) and materials = F-150 > ram and silverado

    I would say 5.6 in Titan > Ram Hemi

    My F-150 is a going to be a daily driving people mover, which is why the 4.6L is fine.

    Congrats on the truck.

    I woulda went 4x4 and 5.4L, tho.

    But black looks really nice on the F150.

    Nissan 5.6L Endurance V8 definitely > Dodge.

    The 4.6L XLT with the TX/OK package was rebated to hell... sticker was 32k and I paid 24k and got 1.9% on it.
    I was trying to get out as cheap as possible.

    I wanted red, but they gave me a better deal taking one off their lot instead of moving one from another dealer, so I got the Black and Tan, I really think the truck looks sharp :coold:

    yea, looks real sharp.

    I wanted Silver or White when I got my Tundra, but they offered me a deal to take the Green one of the lot. $36k MSRP with OTD at $27k ftw :coold:

    Hard to argue color when they come in with a few grand off on price just to move a unit.

    Yeah, the build quality with the Titan is hit or miss, really. I have a Titan King Cab and it has been wonderful for the duration. I feel like the F-150 is very antiquated in many regards, which is why I place it below the Ram and F-150. It's still a good truck, however.

    When I said the Ram motor was better, I was talking about the Cummins diesel--the big trucks, not the 1/2 tons. I have a Silverado 2500 crew with a Cummins swap and I LOVE the thing....pushing over 1000 torque. Yeah, it goes on the dyno alot.

    well, this is the 1/2ton market, and Dodge stinks there.

    The Cummins 24V is one of the few things decent about their 3/4-1ton rigs... And it's interesting that that is the only thing that Dodge has ZERO control over. In other words, one of the only good things about a Dodge diesel is that they don't make the motor :mamoru:

    And even tho they use a good motor, they stick a shitty tranny behind it. For shame. Too bad, too, because I actually like the 2006 Ram interior. Like the dash.

    THe only thing I think Ford is behind on with the F-150 is HP, but I dont tow anything with mine, just drive to work, and it drives really nice and I love it so far.. with 70 miles and all :cool:

    But a truthful one.

    Congrats on the new truck! I would have required the console + shifter though...

    I like the column shifter, which is also why I didnt get the captains chairs, I like the bench seat so its open if I need it

    It'd do a LOT better with a 5 or 6-speed auto. I don't know why Ford overlooked the tranny.
