It all boils down to which truck feels best to the owner. I think Ford, Chevy and Ram nowadays are pretty much equal. Each has both good and bad points. My original Gen-2 '94 Ram 1500 went 293,000 miles before it got totaled by an idiot who ran me off the road into a concrete post. Only unscheduled maintenance was two water pumps and a fuel pump...and it never had any work done on it away from my home garage.
My '03 Ram 2500 Cummins is still running strong at 340,000 miles, over 100,000 pulling a 14K gooseneck horse trailer. Needs more TLC maintenance than the 1500 but I don't have a problem with that.
Those are the reasons I went with the Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi with the 8-speed transmission when I had to replace the wrecked '94. I didn't have plans to get a TT at the time but it does just fine pulling 8,000 pounds. If I had known I was going to get the TT I definitely would have gotten the 3500 Cummins (not that much more $$ than the 2500). Reason: I'm pretty sure I'll upgrade to a 5er and will have to buy one then.
That being said, I'm sure I would be just as pleased with a comparable Ford or Chevy. Toyota wasn't even in the picture because of problems I had with a Tacoma a couple of years back. Worst dealer and factory support I've ever seen. The good news was they had to buy it back under the lemon law.
At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
