Better check again bet it's paid off with interest so govt wins. And BTW still building good trucks we don't need to brag about. Later RJD

Ford recovered on their own dime, not us taxpayers. No comparison at all.

Say or think what you want,bottom line is that I use and work my truck way harder than 90% of the RV towing comunity does,so there is not really a fair comparison going on here.

Well, yeah, fine. You got us there. But it's a heck of a lot easier than getting to the blinker fluid on "the other trucks".

Actually, that should be DEF fluid. Does Chevy still put theirs up in the engine compartment? I checked on my Dad's 2011, and it's not quite as hard as I thought it would be, but still...why up there? It's quite a reach in a 3500 4X4.

Wow, this thread about the new Ford truck sure has the Chevy guys on the defense. The Dodge guys are probably in the garage working on theirs...

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 .
I agree! I wonder if anyone has run a Chevy that long?
