Re: Duramax owner ready to make the switch

if you plan on doing any work with the truck the go with the ford. Dont let chevys inflated hp #'s confuse you. the ford can tow more and haul more. The biggest reason i would stay away from the chevys in the cheap ass independant front suspension, they even put that on their so called heavy duty version. its the new 3500hd that they upped to 13,200gvw that they replaced the top kick with but still comes with ifs. I know this cause my work just bought 3 of them. If you dont believe me then go to a equestrian (horse) show or a rodeo and look at all the trucks in the parking lot 90% fords. Like it or not ford just builds a better truck. how else could they have survived all the bad press the 6.0l got. I just bought a 2010 and i love it. When i pull my 25 foot toy hauler 9,000lb i forget its back there sometimes.
