Of course the Dodge would rust away, the Ford would never start, at least the JD has a dependable engine  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:

Will NEVER own another Dodge truck.  Last one was a gas guzzler from the work go.  Owned for about 6 months and traded it for a Chevy.  Fords (Fix And Repair Daily) are the vehicle repair shops love.  Job Security.  Will stick with the Chevy's.

It's hard to do but they made an Edsel look even worse than original!

I have owned Dodge, Ford and Chevy every one had it's problems. Have come to the conclusion that none are perfect. Probably the sorriest pice of crap I have ever owned was a 75 Jeep CJ 5, and probably the one I regret letting it go the most. It was rotted out from front to back, but I wish it I had rebuilt it.
I just wish Buick made a pickup, they have been the cheapest to maintain and run over 200,000 miles.
Right now I am looking for an auto transmit ion for my 2,000 F150. Have yet to find one in the entire state? I can not complain, paid $600 for it with a weak transmit ion and drove it 3 yrs before it quit.
But it now has just over 100 k on it and looks good so have to fix it.

I've often wondered why General Motors parts are so easily accessed at any parts store. Is this driven by demand?

I've owned junk with many different badges.

 

The front end loader truck is a neat idea.  Just don't roll the bucket back too far and dump the load on your hood!

After the constant battle of repairs the last 15 months with my son's Bronco......never again will I buy a Ford. :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:

 

At least the new Ford trucks are lighter so they are easier to push and you can get more of your money back when they get scrapped. I think they also come with a heated tailgate to keep your hands warm in the winter while pushing and a tailgate seat for while you are waiting for the tow truck   :poke:  :bigrofl:

 

I have my issues with all brands, but my Chevys have been more reliable.

 

 

I bet the Dodge truck is super light in the butt, definitely need weight in the back.

They all have good and bad parts, I like my dodge, but I wish I would have bought a diesel to start with, my next truck will be a diesel.

Don't buy a new diesel.  Pre 2004.

 

Some may disagree with me, but I've watched a few duramax, cummins and power stroke owners battle with emission control problems on their trucks.

 

These regulations have taken the most simple and reliable engines ever designed and turned them into problematic pieces of crap.

You guys can bad mouth the Edsel's all you want, but I would love to have one in decent condition.

They were just a little odd looking for the time. I could probably find a hundred vehicles from every make that was a real POS!

 

Oh, and vehicles are like wives.....you can get a good one or you could get a lemon. Now I don't want to get into talking about my 1st wife OR the Dakota I had....
