I prefer the Chevy on the smaller units. Softer ride, large capacity. We only buy one size of Chevy, the 4500 (14,200 lbs rated) on the 2300 we use the E350 which is rated at 12,500 lbs. It still has the V10...but if you don't need the torque the Chevy works great. (and at that weight, the extra torque may not matter)
