I'm with you.....CHevy's and Fords are all JUNK! Dodge is the way to go. We had an '84 1/2 ton lwb with the 318 and automatic. Clocked 296,000 miles on the clock before the transmission went out, then finally parked it at 342,000 when it went out again. Sat in the field about 7 years....some yard helpers wanted to buy it so we put a battery in and some fresh gas....she fired right up. Sold it for $100. That truck was treated looked like it had been in a demolition derby from the stuff we hauled with it and the stuff we would "Ram" to get around the Farm. Never had any other trouble out of it other than routine maintenance and the alternator.

Have an '02 1500 with the 4.7 litre and a '00 3500 with the Cummins (both auto).
The '02 has around 120,000 miles on the clock and 90% was from pulling small Farmall tractors and heavy machinery (bobcats and diesel tractors). Never a minutes trouble but a couple of oil sending units and regular maintenance. It has the coldest A/C I have ever felt too (and everyone else agrees that rides). The '00 3500 pulls like a champ and will haul some a$$. Now that we have it, the 1500 is getting a bit of a rest. Bought the '00 last Fall with 40,000 miles and now its up to 48,000.
Have owned Fords and Chevys and if the Check Engine Light isn't on bugging you about somthing, they are broke down. Pure cheap junk, and wouldn't buy another one! They were decent trucks, but nothing as tough as a Dodge!

Agreed totally, the fords and Chevies always have dumb stuff going wrong. The dodge you will have something go out very seldom, and usually nothing to major. And I think they have a lot nicer, comfortable interior also.
