What make would you choose Ford or GM
Ohh and where was the disadvantage to the GM I didn't see it in your post, just seen disadvantages of Ford and Dodge."The hardest working, most reliable trucks on the road"
As I mentioned, off-roaders often view the IFS of GM products as a disadvantage. This system offers less articulation, more complexity, and decreased strength. It is also much more expensive to lift and modify for serious digging. For example, if you want top notch articulation on a GMC/Chevy you're looking at a long travel kit where parts alone will cost between $5,000 and $8,000 without installation. Then you put 35" tires on them, and the front track width is wider than the rear causing them not to pass inspection, requiring fender flares even for 8" wheels! Tack on another $700 for flares and getting them painted to match. Even basic 4" to 6" lifts that just clearance bigger tires are at least $1500 for parts, and forget doing it yourself unless you're a mechanic. IFS delivers a great ride and precise steering, and it's a known fact that the vast majority of truck owners never use them for 4-wheeling. Hence the best-selling, tight-handling GMC/Chevy. The typical owner of any truck rarely even takes it on a gravel road let alone the type of off-roading where body damage and breakage are strong possibilities. Just this year a buddy of mine busted a tie rod on his 3/4 ton chevy suburban going over a rock about the size of a volleyball on slightly cobbly road easily passable in any stock 4x4. The rig was totally disabled.#1DEER 1-I said:Ohh and where was the disadvantage to the GM I didn't see it in your post, just seen disadvantages of Ford and Dodge.
Get the new Tundra and never look back, ...well go ahead and look, just to see everyone in the rear view mirror.orvis1 said:I think bolth trucks are nice we currently own a ford but are having MAJOR problems with it. We lifited it and they cant keep it from bouncing at 50-60 MPH. It has been in the shop 6 times now and us and the dealer are going to have go consider it a lemmon if it they can't correct it. I have put some money into it and would hate to have to get another truck but if we get our money back I will seriously have to look at the chevy's. It sucks to spend 50K and get something that does not work!
The problem is my 5th wheel and boat would rip the bed right off a tacoma or tundra. You can only have a 1 ton to take that load. So I either have to go ford, dodge, or chevy/gmc. They have it in the shop again for the 8th time now and if they can't get it fixed we will have to look at some "options". I hope that means getting my money back! We only put a leveling kit on it "dealer installed" and it works great when you are towing anything but drive it alone and on cement roads like bangater hwy it bounces between 50-60 and on regular hwy it has started bouncing when you get over 70mphsnobiller22 said:How bout all you little girls get a real truck and buy a tacoma!!! :mrgreen: :rotfl: *(())*
