You also say you traded a 14 Chevy for a Ford but didn't say drw or srw unless I missed it

my Chevy was a SRW 1 ton, and towing capacity was around 17,000. My Ford is a dually, and towing capacity is 23,500. Both have the power to tow it, but the Ford has a slight edge there. About 10% more. With as much trailer as your asking about, a dually for sure.

The new chevy dully rides so much better and quieter than your 14 SRW. As ratings go they will all be very close when the new tow rating come out. All 3 makes are good just what ever you prefer. Later RJD

Your comparing srw with drw and from brand to brand , no kidding your ford rides better, a daully will ride better especially when towing, yea id try towing ur trailer with a drw Chevy first cause i don't believe that a live axle truck will out ride ifs towing or empty. Just my 2 cents. Compare truck to truck

I thought you weren't looking to argue? I'm comparing what I had because that's what you asked and that's what I owned, so it's real world.

thanks everyone... DW (aka the finance manager) said go make something happen... now to find one without the painted bumpers.

by the way when did the blue oval death wobble go away (not after market, but a factory fix)?

Don't recall Ford having a death wobble, that is what the Dodge truck is known to do. The Ford's rear end does shake a bit on segmented roadways made of concrete between 70-79mph but that problem is pronounced when driving it unloaded. My truck loaded with a trailer or 500 lbs in the bed seems to remedy the issue.

Why would you consider a brand last in diesel horsepower and torque?

I'm curious if you heard anything, I've heard of a possible new front, but new engine, nothing on that front. If anything, I'd like to see GM up the towing capacity on the 2500 for a 5'er

Maybe he is considering that brand simply because the Ford's diesel engines have a long history, and not a good one...why do these diesel posts always have to turn into guys flaming other brands. The OP was pretty specific in his question, lets just stick to it. Loyalties run deep in trucks, and your comments on here are not likely to make him change his mind. As someone else said, all 3 have their plus and minuses and at the end of the day, it comes down to preference and perhaps dealer preference.
