I've always been a blue oval man,but the rental guys set me up with a new silverado. I'm already sold on ford quality and have been all my life,but this damn bowtie truck rides smoother than any ford I've been in. And I'm slowly falling out of love with ford! Am I a horrible,traitorous man for having these thoughts?
Yes you are a Traitor, how dare you ?................

Buy American? What would that be? All the trucks and cars today are an amalgamation of parts. And the fuel and oil you burn comes from some enemy Islamic country. The money used to finance your new truck was supplied by credit from communist China.
Yep, it is "Patriotic" to buy a new Ford F-150 or any other truck or car. And if that is not bad enough the United Auto Workers Union is a rabid anti-gun labor union.
Just hold your nose and buy what you like. Forget the politics.

Hey man some guys are die hard Ford/Chevy guys,once upon a time I told people id always be in a ford myself. Changing teams is sometimes frowned upon around here,I guess the truck brand loyalty runs deeper in the south but its definantly here.

Of course the subject matter isn't as gravely seriously as the subject of treason,I was being mildly sarcastic in a attempt to get some different advice on my options for another truck now that I'm going to be looking at a much larger pool of trucks this time around.

My personal experience with reliability goes to FORD.

First car was a 79 Chevy Scotsdale 10 4x4 short box... Tranny sh!t the bed at 58,000 miles

Later my father had a 94 Siverado 1500 that was on it's 3rd transmission before reaching 60,000 miles

Conversely I've had several F150 Company Vehicle with mileage up to 160k with no major issues and I've noticed that the occasional repairs I have had are considerably cheaper on the Fords.

Beyond that, I don't give money to companies who took bailout money so no Chevy or Dodge for me.

Tack

Not only that, Toyota will stand behind their trucks. They replaced my frame, front lower control arms, rear springs, e-brake cable, and frame-mounted brake lines, AND gave me a rent for 3 or 4 weeks, for FREE! All for an 8 year old truck......

That is incredible,what kind of warranty did they give you that covered that.

I buy diesel trucks with that said, I also will never own another Dodge.
Albeit they have the best engine, the rest of the truck is crap, personal
experience. I am waiting on a new brake line kit for my '99 POS 1/2 ton
I just replaced the upper and lower control arms on the front axle because
the OEM's rusted out and you can purchase new ones so I had to fabricate
my own. At least I was able to get new rubber bushings. I have replaced 2
valley gaskets as the engine keep sucking them in, I epoxied the last one in
place. 5 front bearing, 2 water pumps one radiator, alternator, power steer
pump, rebuilt the Rear end as the LSD clutch packs exploded. Have to run
heavy duty plug wires as the standard one burn up... There is more just
cannot remember what. This is a '99 with ~150k on it, and a 5.2L (318)
under the hood, has always gotten 12.5 mpg...

My 2000 F-350 7.3L Diesel love the truck and the engine, 250k on it. Love
it, one water pump and one power steering pump. Rebuilt the front axles
recently. But it sees a lot of rough miles off road and on. It has hauled a
lot of steel, feed, hay and livestock over the years. Great truck.

Ford stumbled with the 6.0 and 6.4 diesels sounds like the 6.7 are good I
will likely try one in the future.

Chevy makes a good truck Duramax seems like a good engine, I just have
issues buying from Government Motors.

No warranty covered it. Toyota discovered a frame rot problem due to a manufacturing defect. They started by buying ANY truck (well, Tacomas) that had frame rot back, at 1 1/2 times book value in "excellent" condition, whether it was or not. You could strip off any add-ons you put on it, but it had to roll in. I missed this by a few months, and by the time my truck wouldn't pass inspection, they were doing this as the fix. It was not a recall, either. They did it voluntarily. The problem affects at least '99 to mid '07 Tacomas, and possibly other models, but not the Tundras. As far as I know.

Maybe they still make the frontier, I'm not sure. But I think it's much bigger now than it was.
