[QUOTE=toslow;969719]the problem i see with ford and chevy, is they are gas engines converted to diesel and won't stand the compression for long[/QUOTE

Wrong you are bucko! Ford's 6.7 powerstroke was designed to be a diesel engine period. As far as I know the same goes for Chevy. Ford's only bad diesel engine was the 6.0 which forced Ford to make their own, Navistar was the supplier for Ford and they got into a lawsuit over faulty engines and that's the reason Ford came out with it's own and it was never ever designed for a gas engine.

I have to laugh at the hardcore diesel chatter on here. If you truly want to know what each brand can handle, just check their stats.

Here's an example:

Chevy Silverado HD and it's cousin GMC tow ratings: 14,800 to 23,200 lbs.

Ford Super Duty: 16,100 to 31,200 lbs.

Ram HD: 13,940 to 31,210 lbs.

There ya go!

No Camping For Us...Thanks Thieves

I drove Chev till 2008. Went to pick up the new one I ordered. The new style was so butt ugly I went and ordered a ford. So 2008 ford 2011 ford. Now 2014 ford.

92,000 mile on the 08--96,000 mile on the 2011-- now 39,000 mile on the 2014. Not one of them in the shop for anything other than normal maintenance or a recall. ?? Maybe you might want to reconsider??

Russell.
