    3: gear selector

    I like the mirrors and the exhaust brake. Put those on FORD and you will beat any Dodge any day

    I love Ford but I like the way those new ones are going back to the late 90
    s early 2000 look. I'll stick with Ford though.

    Oh yeah...Ford's are nice, except for they take a country mile to turn, they ride like a tank, but I have a young back so I don't worry about ride comfort yet. Oh yeah I love the cheap plastic interiors in the new fords, oh,oh, oh, I really love how the rust out so quick, and did I mention the awsome square box without any body lines look, oh and who can forget the great color selection....Fords rock though. :laughing:

    Now, I would like to add the Ford's, the, the, well I can't think of any of thing that ford has that dodge hasn"t perfected, except the price maybe, yeah I would like the ford price tag.

    The dodge truck my friend had towed a trailer way better than his ford. He bought a 05 350 DRW loaded crew cab 6x6. He ended up telling ford to keep it after it was in the shop for the first 4 months he "owned " it. Ford was making his payments. After that he when and got a 05 Dodge cummins 4X4 SRW. Only ever had to take it in for u joints on the drive shaft. We were pulling a 44 foot covered tariler. With full tool box, 5 atvs, generator and all the other stuff you need at the track. It was a easy 15k. You could barely feel it. The ford just did not live up to it name.

    LOL they really pride themselves on the flip up mirrors and it has a "relationship saver", wow and crappy electronic switches that don't work right next to each other. Don't forget the storage in the floor just big enough for a box of fuses. :p

    Thats what I was thinking to. The only thing that it has going is looks. I did want a dodge but now want a ford. The winning factor is...I have a 2008 jeep liberty that i am leasing brand new and it fell apart at 24,000 miles. chrysler products SUCK. and what is a dodge??? I will never buy a chrysler again! They do business horribly!

    Haha, all I heard was BLA BLA BLA. Dodge has had the industry best towing mirrors for years now. WOW, a backup camera..Ford also had that already, and a 4& 7 pin connector...HMM Wonder where they have been getting all these ideas. I'd take the cummings engine...and throw the rest in the trash. Not to mention the grille looks like a big toothless redneck smile.

    Sorry dodge guys..I just love my Ford.:laughing:

    Sorry for all the hate...

    but ALL dodge owners walk around all high and mighty thinking their the **** and i cant help but to rip on them. Really your truck is no better than anyone elses. Maybe even a little worse!!!

    you probably are now thinking you never should have started this thread. :help:

    i dont know why but **** = $ + H + I + T

    i guess the mods did that so i had to come back and edit it.
