    Very Surprising.

    I think they should have stayed Ford. BigFoot's always been Ford, kinda just one of those iconic things that anyone could recognize. I'm sure there had to be a large financial benefit to go with Chevy over Ford after 35 years but I'm not sure if I like it or not.

    I think this is probably a one time thing. But have seen on other sites that Chevrolet will be there new sponsor.

    One comment that the vice president of Bigfoot inc made was "What's more American than Chevrolet". Why would you say that if you were still gonna run Ford bodies & engines.

    But money drives everything. No matter what.

    No Cat dealers around here. Closest one I believe is 1.5hrs away. Not real good when equipment is down, especially if the dealer doesn't have the part you need.

    John Deere is in Moline, IL. 3hrs from here. There is Deere dealers everywhere around here.

    Fact: One reason for MLB Bigfoot being made is the fact that Chevrolet is the official vehicle of the MLB. Also, Firestone collaborates with the MLB, hence the reason for this truck being made...

    Marketing is a beautiful thing.
