Lol you been drinking the cool aid again. Not a truck guy by any stretch, my little 4 banger ranger is all the truck I need, but even I know Ford lays the smack down when it comes to Trucks, and their trucks have been some of the best selling Trucks in the market. For a number of years....

Kool aid or not, GM sells more trucks then ford, Chevy and GMC seperate do not.
In the oil patch, many fords are used for crew trucks. That way we could beat the hell out of them and no one would care. And they did not stand up... i switched five trucks in a year and a half. booo ford.

Ford's claim to be the best selling truck is not even accurate when you add Chevy truck sales to GMC truck sales....the combined sales number blows Ford away.

Correct, because Ford as a company only had one brand, the Ford brand, that builds trucks. GM has Chevy and GMC. There numbers are and ALWAYS HAVE BEEN skewed due to this fact. Put Ford against GM and they will no longer have that big 'advantage' they claim to have.

True true and true. But because GM strat is to make ONE BASE truck, and slap 2 different branding on it, make it a tops seller ? No. This thinking is what landed GM in the hot water they are currently trying to get out of now. Sure you can combine GMC and Chevy and say they have the top numbers. I never understood why GM just do not sell their trucks under GMC to begin with really.

Also I never stated that GM trucks are bad. Nope..not saying that. But to say Ford trucks suck is a far fetching statement as well, because just like a Mustang, I see a whole lot of Ford trucks every.

GMC and Chevy are are different makes and models and GMC is trying to seperate itself also with it's professional grade. Yes, they are made by the same company, but you don't add arcadia and it's other 3 stablemates as 1 model do you?

Anyway, I would go for the Ram HD over the Ford or GM for 1 reason, it meets the NO2 standards without having to use a eurea system that has to be filled every 5000 miles.

Some much needed upgrades. I'm still a Dodge truck guy, but I'm impressed with the changes.

If I was going to run a 20k load I would move up to a medium duty truck though. Even if the truck can handle it payload wise, that's alot of weight for that wheelbase and the tires you can fit in a light duty trucks wheel wells. A 30-35ft toy-hauler would be a perfect fit though.

Both of which a 1/2 truck will do just fine.
Ya but you need at least a 2500 if you want to be able to run 22's with a 6 inch lift plus haul your preteen children that weigh 250 lbs each to Winger's.

I have owned ford dodge and gmc in the last 12 months. They are all nice in their respective ways. They are all not so nice in their respective ways.

And yes, wood grain is ugly.
