    As a GM proponent, I would only say that the product that GM has put out for the past 25 years has met our needs sufficiently. Have we had problems? For sure. I recall a time when three of our four truck fleet had blown reverse out of the 4L80E. I have seen the frame crack issues on the pre '11 frames. And there are other things if I sifted through our records. Despite these issues, we still choose to purchase GM trucks.

    The point is less about what truck is suited to suburbia and which are suited to back-country life, and more about where you see your needs met and after the sale service. Most of my purchasing decisions are less about price than what happens after the sale. And it seems to me that brand loyalty pays dividends when it comes to after-sale service, at least in our experience.

    Now I know that doesn't capture all of the bravado that has been bantered about here. The point is there really isn't a whole lot of difference amongst the different offerings anymore, the days of the good 'ol solid work truck are over (even 12V Dodges with decent bodies are becoming extinct). So as long as you're buying a new truck with PW and PS, it seems silly to debate that one brand is clearly best. We're all deciding by which seated heat works best.

    Far too much common sense and not nearly enough chest pounding in this post. (That should keep this post from being removed. I'd like to say something else, but I'm giving MJD a break this morning.)

    Well after pricing out trucks Chevy 2020 is way higher than the ford. Now what to do but $3210 is real money to me.

    $3210 is a small price to pay for quality, reliability, and a smooooooth ride... :nod:

    And I too have a whole herd of GM's...

    it will take a lot to get me to own a Ford again after having a 6.0 - some things you just can't forget

    Oh you too! I will not own s ford again! The best I ever heard we don’t have any problems with the motors. So why are you suing international in federal court or warranty claims

    The way I heard it is the GM employees are on strike because they don't want to build such a ugly truck.

    In the contract demands,a they asking for a redesign

    This is maybe the most lucid, and intelligent post ever on this site. You’ll need to leave now.

    West of the Mississippi word on the playground is the strike is because the employees / unions are tired of working of working to payback the gooberment…...

    Guess they shouldn't have taken the money then...or gotten themselves into the situation to begin with.

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm trying to leave humbly, just can't seem to get my head through the door.

    So pretty much they want sticker minus 600 to 800! A 2019 is 11k off sticker so I’m not sure what I’m going to do.
