well alot for ford v8s begin to go after 200,000 miles they just arnt built as well. dodges idk really because most people that ik who've had a dodge 350 traded it in at 150,000. and the reason most chevy fan dont like the competition is because they talk big and try to look better but they cant back it up in the field. also chevrolet as a company just has a unique pride and dedication with their fans. they care about their fans they care about the heritage. chevy has a unique culture that other companys would dream about. also we pretty much invented the full size truck and full size suv.
