    I don't believe. Only I will believe after these have 200K miles and still driveable.

    Have 99 F250 5.4L with 246K miles and still running.

    I drive in ditches.....like every other truck owner.:eek: How about real world situations? If I'm in a ditch...there will be major problems either way!!!!

    But I do agree that this situation clearly the chevy frame is superior!

    Wow! I'm a Ford, Chevy, Dodge guy so I don't really pick a favorite, I have had multiple examples of all three. Man, that Ford bends easy and the new chevy looks nice as well as strong.

    Hmm what about all the cracks in GM frames(search chevy forum "frame cracks"). They do not talk about that one do they. It's advertising people. Don't be so gullible. Do you think Howie Long is doing this from an engineering standpoint...nope just for the $$.

    x2 on the commercial... my fords frames flex when in ditches like that and such, my trucks have probably been flexed thousands of times and they are still straight and strong. So it twists, whats the problem, it doesn't stay flexed after you drive out of that position. Each truck gets sh** done, but I will venture out to say this, I see alot more high mileage fords then chevys... There you guys go, I said it. Bring on the bashing...

    So many flaws... Where do we start... :rolleyes: If Ford paid for that "independent testing" the results would be flip flopped. Notice when the tailgate dented on the ford, that they rolled the left front off the ramp, yet they didn't with the chevy when they opened the tailgate. :rolleyes: Wait til Dodge does the same test, chevy and ford will be failures. :dizzy: Don't doubt for a minute that GM didn't weaken the Ford in the tests, and likewise with Ford's promo materials, they do whatever they have to to make their product look superior.

    Edit: LOL, just watched it again... Now why do you suppose they had the camera zoomed in on the Ford's tailgate at that exact second? LOL Totally staged!

    obviously that proves gm is better then ford. no more threads are needed to discuss this subject. lets all just agree that each truck has it pros and cons and in the end we pick what we like. that is what is comes down to pretty much, personal choice.

    I think the nay sayers need to get some first hand experience with the 11 GM's. I have and the difference btw them and pre 11 is unbelievable. I don't see it as a sales ploy. Show me a Ford commercial that shows the opposite. As for the GM cracked frame thing, crawl under a Ford that goes through the same abuse as the GM's that crack the frames. I can tell you first hand that my twin 04 350's are cracked to sh!t and repaired several times over. Front and rear. Fronts before they even had plows. I've never had a crack in any of my GM's. That's not to say it won't happen.............

    GM stepped it up boys, let's be glad they did. Calling BS isn't going to change anything.

    In all honesty I think it comes down to the suspension. ifs vs solid. I think that has a lot to do with how it all flexes. Call me stupid but thats just my opinion.

    Oh by all means, I'm not denying they've had a hard life. I love the trucks and we work them to death.........I was just saying that nothing's perfect, that's all. :salute:

    I have to agree that it is a commercial and as such things might be skewed one way to make the advertiser's point but I do have to agree with Bibbo and TJS's points on the matter. They wrote exactly what I was thinking watching the ad.
