1-ton Pickup who makes the best and why?

So of the big 3 Ford, Chev and Dodge Ram, what do you think is the best 1-ton Pick-up and why?

Towing/hauling
Reliability
Comfort

Stick with the dodge for towing and hauling what u do. But dont be a lazy and get the troubled auto transmission. Get the stick dude.

Also stop driving your 50,000 + truck to work everyday... Get a commuter

^^ no mention of which ones come standard with an integrated diesel exhaust brake. From the little bit of searching I did it appears all three have it but didn't find if it is an option or not.

I have a pacbrake on my '04. makes me wonder how I got by without one before...

Whatever truck you choose, get the exhaust brake if it is an option...

Dodge. The new dodge laramie is nice. The interiors used to suck balls, but now they are pretty good.

All will have emission problems. Cummins is the better motor by far.

The auto trans problem has been fixed and is rated for more hp and torque then the std.

Factory exh brake.



And i see way more 03-09 dodges out there then ford and chev combined.

I had a duramax, it was...ok... 4 front ends, snapped a pitman arm off, 2 motors,2 transmissions, 6 wheel bearings, a set of injectors, including cracked fuel lines,

Since I've had the f250, injector cups,return lines, starter, put rear disks, replaced front pads and rotors, clutch master & pedal assembly upgraded, soon I gotta do the clutch,

The ford is Definitly more expensive parts wise, but it's been a better pulling vehicle, stopping on the other hand.....duramax for sure, but I wouldn't buy a new dodge, I would rather have a older one,

I like the older vehicle cause I can push it through the bush when I go out hunting and I don't feel bad scratching the shit out of the paint, the newer trucks feel too flimsy now a days..but what do u do, most newer trucks have a 10 year (if that) life on them before u have to trade them in,

Most fleet trucks logging , oil patch, government etc are Fords.
Taseko mine has a ton of pickups they are all Fords.

I think all 3 brands are probably OK brand new but same thing the Fords seem to outlive the others.

Ive got a 02 F-350 that likes to cruise about 120 up hill or down trailer or not.

My 04 F350 CC hauls ass. Pulls a trailer with a rig on it like there's nothing there, and it's uber comfortable to drive. A buddy with an 02 Ram 2500 and 2011 5500 was impressed by it's power.
