    Im almost 16 but i cant decide who really makes the best truck for all around use towing trailer, plowing daily driving to school. I feel like chevy is better but there are more fords out by me. It seems like 80% of people on this site use chevys. Please help:)

    Honestly, I would think 75% to 85% of the people here will say the better of the 2 is what they currently have. I can say buy Chevy cause that's all I ever own but we all know that doesn't answer that question. There are some people that have valuable reasons as to why one better then the other but I think it comes down to preference cause as you have seen already plowing can be done with Chevy or Ford and also Dodge, Toyota..........

    I doubt you will be buying new, so it is not really a question of who makes a better truck. They are all good in their own ways. Just the same as all have weak points. You will have to figure out what price range you can reasonably afford. Then start researching to see what trucks fall into that price range. Then research those trucks as far as common problems with them. While out truck shopping, make sure you look everything over twice if not three times, to make sure it will not be a money pit that you will eventually regret buying. Do NOT forget to smell the transmission dipstick, if it smells burnt, walk if not run from it. If your father is mechanically inclined, bring him with you, or somebody who knows about vehicles and what to look for when buying one.

    I agree.

    Your welcome. I don't think you can kill the thread, only the moderators and administrators can delete or close threads. Do not worry about it though, some people will post like that instead of giving advice because they see lots of these types of posts.

    I agree, but mainly because of all of the BS posts. Lawnkid asked what he thought was a good honest question. Majority just seem to make fun of the thread instead of helping the young guy out a bit. At least maturity levels are being shown by the type of posts here. Sorry if that offends any of you, yet maybe next time the smartest thing to do is not post if you do not want to help. I am sure I will get internet bashed for that statement, but oh well.

    I second what Matt is saying, thats great advice, all trucks have up's and downs.. As with anything built. I myself am a Ford guy till the day I die, it's just my preference. Buy what's in good condition and priced right and in your budget to start out. I wouldn't be to concerned with whats better or what company made it. I would however only be looking at the american trucks, real american trucks Ford, Dodge, or G.M.
