As far as new trucks go I only really like Dodge. Or the F250 isn't too bad looking either. The Chevys look like something a 16 year old girl would drive. But maybe i'm just overly critical of new vehicles. I don't like the style at all. A truck IMO is supposed to be rugged looking. Not like the prettied up looking sissy trucks they make today.
diesel 2500 4 door 4x4 min.. have drove both 2013 ford and dodge models recently.. both did great towing... ford had better seats, dodge interior was nicer layout, but was a step or two up in level than the ford I had.

I've had 2 new silverados, a '97 that I traded in at 260,000mi and an '03 that I traded at 180,000mi. Both were used as work trucks, lots of towing heavy loads and lots of time on powerline right-of-ways. I didn't have any trouble with either one, and both always got me to where I was going. I'd buy another with no hesitation.
As it turns out, I'm not a 'real' jeeper
Ford F150. The only reason I sold mine and am driving a Jeep now is because my daughter with her car seat, didn't fit in the rear seat of my extended cab. Best, most low maintenance vehicle I've ever owned.

For a full size I would buy another F-150. My 03 FX4 was a dream. I would even consider an ecoboost. I love what Ford is doing these days. For a smaller truck? Taco hands down. (Too bad they're close to a full size truck price)
Ford F-150 is the best selling pickup. I like the Dodge, but own a 2012 Silverado LTZ. I use the truck like a car most of the time, but it also carries a lot of stuff that I wouldn't put inside the truck. It's 4WD, V8, and I can get 21mpg on a long trip....even 22 if things go good. It's not a Jeep, so I won't compare the two. If you're interested in getting a truck, then I'd suggest a few test drives with the different brands. Each one has their good points.
Small truck I'd go for a Nissan Frontier. Had a 98 frontier that went over 300,000 miles and it looked practically new the day we sold it. Full size I'd go for a dodge ram. Personally I want a 24 valve cummins but go with what suits you.

My dream truck would be a 2005 cummins with the fiberglass prerunner fenders in from and back. they are pretty cool looking reminds me of a dually but not. there was a white one for sale last month but i cant afford 2 vehicles at the moment maybe once the jeeps paid off.
Looks like Im not getting that Toyota I posted.They wont come down at all on the price & only want to give me 2000.00 for my 2000 XJ limited thats in very good shape.Im not going to just give my jeep away.
