3/4 Ton Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge w/Gas Engine

Let's start a new survey. This comparison is limited to 3/4 ton (F250, 2500, etc.) trucks only, with gasoline engine. I know the big diesel trucks are almost equal and will pull a mountain. If you were buying a new truck today and it definitely had to be a 3/4 ton with gas engine, which would you buy and why, Chevy, Ford or Dodge?

I bought a 2010 F250 with the 5.4 and pull a Fuzion 300 toy hauler with a Harley Road King. I get between 8 & 9 mpg pulling 10,000 lbs at 65 mph. Tranny temp never moves no matter what the road brings it. I would buy again if not buying a disel.

2005 F250 cc lariat V10 4x4 pulling our 39' fiver weighing in at 13k+ lbs. Milage as good as 8 or as bad as 6 depending on terrain, but mostly my speed. Never had a problem maintaining 65 if I wanted.

It wouldn't be a Dodge, because they stopped producing trucks and Ram Trucks now produces the trucks.
And me personally, I would go for the Ram with the 6.4l hemi. Better ride with the coils, optional air ride, and a nice powerplant.

If I were to ever go back to a gas eng truck, which I would never stoop that low unless I never pulled again. it would have to be a chevy, I have pulled with my old 6.0 3/4, my bosses 6.0 2013 3/4, and our company`s 2014 f250 3/4 6. what ever, and the 6.0 had more seat of the pants power then the ford and was really comfortable in the seat, but I have never driven a dodge with the hemi

I have a '14 RAM 2500 with the 5.7. My TT is about 8k. It pulls just fine up here in flat land (Ohio/Michigan). I average 10.5 pulling and 16 empty to work five days a week, 50 mile round trip. I love it. I have not driven the 6.4, but mine has plenty of grunt.
