Just wait until Toyota offers a deisel, then we can really start up these old arguments as if they were brand new!

My perfect truck would have:

Chevy drivetrain
Dodge body
Ford electronics package
Toyota reliability

The original poster is asking for opinions. I don't see any hijacking occurring. Opinions are being offered. As for what manufacturer to buy, consider the new, redesigned 2013 Dodge Ram. One sweet looking truck.

I would take the duramax and the Allison everything else in front of it and behind it are not up to par. Transfer cases are scary and the front ends. Worked on too many and heard to many bad stories.

So, now that you have the truck first you have to make sure you match the trailer weight to the vehicle.

This limits your choice of trailers to what the truck can deal with.

Of course, you can still get a very nice 5th wheel that will still be within the Ford's ratings/capabilities.
