Trucks are like guns in that all manufacturers are capable of spitting out a lemon. We all know someone who has gotten fantastic service from all the popular brands of pick up trucks. We also know someone who has gotten a POS from every manufacturer. If I am buying a new pick up truck it would be a Ford. Fords usually cost less. Ford has a decent track record. When something breaks parts are less expensive and plentiful.

I would avoid pick ups with a diesel engine, turbochargers of any kind. If you are pulling heavy loads all the time get a commercial vehicle.

JW,

I have had Ford Trucks, GMs and Chevrolets. The Ford F150 Club Cab was a fine truck. But I have had such good luck with my GM vehicles it is hard for me to get away from them. Included in my opinion is a Chevrolet Suburban which in essence is a 1/2 ton truck frame and also a Yukon XL and now a Chevrolet Silverado with 4 doors.
The 1995 Suburban I still have with 185,000 miles and no problems or serious issues. Did put an Alternator on it. The 2007 Yukon XL I still have now has around 185,000 on it no problems, and now have 149,000 on the 2011 Silverado with zero problems. So with that experience, I have to say my next truck or similar vehicle will be with a GM although I do not like the government bailout or the affiliation with the present administration and have thought seriously going back to a Ford. But????

IMHO, I have the ultimate truck!

A 1997 Ford F250 Heavy Duty 4X4, with super cab and 8' bed.

7.4 liter Power-Stroke Diesel with 4 speed automatic and 2 speed transfer case.

It will pull anything, haul anything, and go anywhere.

Just over 200K miles, and nothing but routine service so far.

I think you mean 7.3l I have almost the same truck exept it is a '95 with a 5 speed that I picked up a couple months ago. So for no problems! Just hit 290 thousand.
