Go back under your f'in rock. Somebody left the door open and you managed to sneak in. Now do us all a favor, let yourself back out.

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.
I don't post on powerstroke nation exept for mocking posts like the above.

and if you hate dmax and ifs so much then why do you continue posting on a duramax forum. you have more posts there by about 16,000 then you have here.

2000 Chevy C1500 - 48k miles when I sold it. Ball joints twice. Upper control arm bushings 3 times. Brake rotors replaced twice. In the shop 14 other times for misc front end issues. Total time in the shop - 22 days.

2002 Chevy 2500HD - 17k miles when I trashed it. In the shop 21 times with front suspension issues, horrible tire wear, brake issues, ball joints, steering issues, etc. Total time in the shop - 35 days.

This does not include the 2 Hummers (H2's) that I owned that were in the shop a total of 23 days together.

Fast forward to now.

3 Fords. Total time in shop 2 days. Oil changes, 1 radiator issue with my first F250 and AC repairs on my 2nd F250. No other issues especially with that SFA. Also I am much harder on my Ford's than I was my gm trucks because now I have heavier toys to tow around and move so that is proof to me.


So unfortunately I could not keep that gm junk any longer to see if it would have lasted, it was costing me too much money.


and i can talk about my 2005 psd with 45k and the countless problems i have with it compared to 2 other dmax's i have owned..... but its not worth it.

this is a never ending battle.

Re: Duramax owner ready to make the switch

It would be more interesting to discuss the strong points of each of the American trucks. Its got to be hard to produce a product of such complexity with competitors in the market, and have everyone love your design and execution.

Who cares what you drive!!! Bottom line is the chevy is no better than the ford at all. Drive what you will.

Re: Duramax owner ready to make the switch

We have three different brands of heavy duty trucks for the same reason we have countless flavers of ice cream. Not every body likes the same thing. I'm not sure what the benefit is of getting offended cuz some other guy that I don't even know has a different preference than I do.
