    Stereo potential, engine power, room, and obviously how it drives.

    Overall package, ride, quiet, features, design, engineering, power, etc.

    My favorite truck right now is the Silverado. Though I hate IFS, I like the rest of the truck enough to where I could live with it.

    seriously, though, i look for front end travel, availability of long travel custom lifts, IFS, ability to move itself out of its own way (dodge is out), and overall styling. f-150 for me

    the Z came from these parameters:

    Insane factory ground clearance, overbuilt rear axle w/ decent rear gear, best all terrain tires ever mounted on a stock truck, moderate approach/departure angle, biggest V6 ever made, great interior, good low range, high, flat torque curve....

    I should have added this to the criteria in the first post: Not a Jeep :p

    hey, i'm an s10 owner. i'm simply saying that ford's i-beam setup owns chevy ifs off road. longer stock travel, and longer modded travel. it took me a shit ton of cash and work to get decent travel out of my truck, and i would have much rather started with an i-beam setup.

    Really? I've got twelve successful ford extractions that say it does. No less than twelve separate Fords that supposedly 'own' my truck. I don't think so. Pulled out Jeeps, F150's, F250's, 1500s, 2500s, Rangers, Toyotas, Nissans, even a Land Rover.
