    This is what I drive. I can tell you, that unless you need the towing capability, you don't want one. I love my truck, but it is a bitch to drive every day. The suspension is very stiff and will beat you to death. Mileage sucks. But, you can tow pretty much anything. The biggest PITA is parking it. Very few parking spaces are available that don't require turning in, backing up, and then getting into the spot.

    @tirk is nuts. The Ford is hands down the best looking. GMC caught up a little this year, but Ford still wins.

    Best 3/4 ton would be Ford Body, Dodge engine, Chevy transmission.

    Now that I hung up my contractor license, I am seriously considering going back to a 1/2 ton. They ride much better and these days, have seriously good towing specs.

    chevy always looked better than the ford boxes. but they certainly improved from years ago.

    sales numbers would suggest otherwise.

    Nah the Chevy has always looked better. Oh and if you are lucky you don't have a year where they put those stupid spark plugs that cost $15 ea and snap off in the head if you try to take em out. Screw ford

    so a toyota camry is the best looking car? what dumb reasoning. actually it may suggest what i said. its a more reliable truck. looks are secondary and companies buy the shit out of f150s. but they are a lot better looking than in the past.

    Me and a huge black lab road together in the back of an old bronco on a duck hunting trip to the coast back in mid 70s. About seven hours. By the time we arrived, I could hardly walk, but I knew the lab real good!

    lol my son who just turned 21 is sporting around in a Dodge 3500 loaded to the gills. Remember that thread about my ex wife getting a big settlement, yeah. I told him "I will give you the rest of your life to give me 1 good reason why you need a 3500"
