    Just something to think about. If you HAD to get a non General motor's truck, what would it be? And please, none of that petty immature stuff you see all over the internet about how 'Dodge rules, ford sucks!' Etc. Obviously we can all agree that GM is our top choice for a truck, but there are reasons that Ford, Dodge, Nissan, etc sell so many pickups year after year. So what would it be?

    I am personally a fan of the Ford Super Duty's. I think they have a great styling cue's to them, as 08-newer F250/350 are my favorite trucks next to the GM line. The boxy body style and front grille really set it off for me. I also like the Powerstoke engine's aside from the early versions of the 6.0.. the classic 7.3 was a beast. Ford also has more than several trims to choose from which is another reason for my choice, my favorite being the 'Lariat' as opposed to the over the top 'King Ranch.' I came close to buying a red 08 F250 5.4L Supercrew, and at one point an 08 electric blue 5.7 Ram, but obviously I went the best route and landed in the driver's seat in my plush, powerful, and reliable GMC.

    I would go with a 78/79 Ford Bronco, an Excursion fully loaded with everything but leather and a diesel engine, or a mid to late 80s Ford F-350 crew cab dually. The Bronco and Excursion would both get jacked up with huge tires; I'd keep the F-350 pretty stock.

    I'd go back to driving my Tacoma, it's still sitting in the driveway getting dusty.
