what "dog" are you referring too? Ford's diesel makes WAY more power than Chevy's. Chevy is behind everyone with power right now.

A truck is a truck. Us chevy folks need not brag about how good we are we know we bought the right truck the first time around. The reason your NO1 is you have to keep buying to replace the first Ford junker ya bought Later RJD

Oh the heartburn! I bet that would translate to about $2k a year in property taxes! Every year! Insane. I don't know why people buy new cars in Kansas.

Thats a pretty bold statement to have to justify,at least in my case,and I'm sure many others. I replaced my "bought new" 1983 f 250 diesel SC with a new f 250 SC diesel in 2000.The '83 was still running fine with 290000 on the clock,I gave it to my son who ran it untill 2006.The 2000 SDPST is at 204000 miles and will most likely be my last truck,at my age. So the first f 250 was a 1970 which I bought new and coverted to 6v-53 detroit power in 1971,replaced in 1983,that unit replaced in 2000.I guess Ive driven a LOT of junk.Also,how many of you "old" gm owners can say they hauled two loads of hay (7200# and 7600#) and relocated thier 14200# backhoe 42 miles so far this week with thier truck.Most were probably hard pressed to get groceries .
