      @Vincent Novick look around you. There are WAY more old Chevy trucks than any other brand.

      I have two Ford 5.4 and they are great work trucks that handle abuse and still run great.

            Had to drive an '04 F-150 for work about 13 years was like trying to drive a couch with roller skate wheels bolted to the underside.
            It wasn't the worst car I've driven, but it was definitely an ungainly, clumsy, overbearing, rickety oaf of a truck, with panel gaps so large I could fit my fingers between them.
            It completely turned me off from owning an F-150.

            It's kinda odd because I have an '04 Ranger XLT FX4 that's a great little truck, but that F-150 was absolutely dreadful.

                  Scotty, you're such a fan boy, that's the WORST truck out there.
                  The engine is a spark plug blowing pos. The transmission and drivetrain all went bad in less than 30k miles on mine. Also they have the worst crash test ratings.

                      Honestly Ford has came a long way. As a Toyota guy I must say Ford has been catching my interest recently, mostly the new ranger.

                            Years ago, the Blue Oval made great pick up trucks. In 1980, Ford introduced a new line of pickups that were pretty much junk. Ford spent the '80s trying to improve the truck and cure this engineering disaster. Since then, their trucks have been mediocure, at best. The current aluminum bodied F-150s with their tiny all aluminum engines are filling the niche formally ocupied by the Ranchero. Why this guy has a love affair with Ford trucks is curious. These ecoboost engines will never live as long as all cast iron gas engines and the Ford and International are still smarting over the 6.0 diesel engine debacle. There are plusses and negatives with every current pick brand and no single brand has a lock on superiority.

                              I drove a Ford F250 super duty at my job, for years....and it felt like a lumber wagon....went through 2 engines ...always in the repair shop....underpowered and it sucked in snow. Then I drove a chevy Silverado....a win win.

                                        The new ones say you dont have to touch the trans for 100000 miles. I just changed the filter in mine and put a pan with a drain plug at 30000. full fluid change and filter will happen at 60000 I hope to make it last 25 years .

All my American half ton trucks I owned didn’t last for a damn had all three brands. my tundra is going strong and I beat on the truck every day and still perfect, and makes over a 100hp over stock.

                                                        I have 280k miles on mine. Everything original except brakes, shocks, alternators, and other simple things. Of course, yes, the five point four develops timing chain slack in these models. No big deal as there is an upgrade to the cam phasers, tensioners, and oil pump while you are in their. What pisses people off is that the mechanics charge a fortune to replace these parts. Suck it up and do it yourself and Save money. One thing I am pissed off about is that mine has a sunroof. I've never used it. But all of the sudden I have a slight odd leak. And....I was ignorant about the sunroof drain tube that exits the rear corner of the cab. The tube falls back in the channel and causes rust. I am in georgia and I let this happen! Also, the third brake light gasket on all of these modern trucks allows water to get behind it and drains down in cab corners. Make sure you put the third brake light lens back on properly when replacing the bulb! Damnit. The GM trucks are good in their own special way as well. They have less torque, less crash safety, some don't have rear disks, steering column shaft issues, rattle interiors, and a little bit less of a transmission than the ford. But, the five point three engine in the GM has simplicity on its side. The shade tree mechanic has cheaper repair options when that five point three breaks down. And it's a little easier to work on. I wouldn't pass on a GM truck for a good deal. The dodge, however.....oh my god.

I get concerned about the problem Ford had with spark plugs thread problem with plugs literally falling or shooting out. Please review model years to avoid. Otherwise, I agree Ford are good trucks. Certain engines had that spark plug stripping out problem. Which motors to avoid. I'm looking at used class 3 RV. Don't want that problem.

I have 2000 Silverado and it has some minor issues but it still runs and shifts well. It seems like most of the time I see a 2000 Ford either the exhaust sounds like crap or it sounds like it’s running on 3 cylinders 😂
