    Dodge just ain't the best choice in Ohio. If you do get one, open up the door panels and get that foam out of there. Also keep an eye on moisture in the doors and under the carpet. Door seals...

    I've got about 600,000 miles on Fords and almost 400,000 on GM's in the field. I pick the Fords based on that experience. We scrap the GM's at 180,000 miles. Truth be told, both the Ford and GM...

    Only a fool swaps an LS into a Fox Body or Fox Chassis. Engine costs more than the car and sounds horrible. Plenty of great engines available for those cars. I'd swap in a 400HP Al block 347 or...

    Yeah the new trucks are fugly.

    The Raptor era F150's, current F350, and the Dodge HD's look nice to me. The 1/2 ton Dodges are pure ugly, the new F150's ain't so cool either. The GM's look...

    Get the Ford F350 superduty bottle jack from a junkyard. No hydraulics, just gear, and tons of throw.

    Not even close. The Excursion is lethargic, heavy, and huge handling. Like a bus, compared to the 'burban 2500. I'd still rather have the Ford, but it ain't the same "feel" as the burb. No...

    I'd get a Ford F350 with a gas 6.2L. 4.30 or 4.56 gears. Long bed. Manual hubs and transfer case if you can find 'em. XLT is fine. Don't waste $$$ on the Lariats, Platinum, or King Chump...

    +1.

    You want stiffer shocks. Not softer. Either your springs are too stiff or you're bouncing off the bump stops. Or the truck has lousy suspension geometry.

    Shocks too soft can have a...

    Full synthetic in a regular V8 F150 is a waste of oil. Cobra, Raptor, OK. But there is nothing especially wrong with the standard 4.6 that expensive oil will fix. It's a budget, low output,...

    A newer supercab or crewcab F150 is great for towing smaller 19' single axle trailers and boats. Something the Jeep will struggle to do (safely). And the F150 can haul 1 bike at the same time. ...

    Truck.

    I'll never go back to a Jeep. Jeeps are about as useful as a motorcycle, 4wheeler, or a sportscar. Can't tow jack, never any room, can't haul anything. It'll go anywhere, but if you...

    OP, you still have a ton of homework to do. The Dodge is much improved lately. But saddly, for every improvement they've made, has pretty much put a Ford jinx on their engine and trans. We're...

    Uh, no. It's a cheap forklift engine. Nowhere even close to a wet liner 15L semi truck engine in quality, materials, or reliability. Not even close. Never was.

    I'd go new. The new "actually Ford built" diesels seem excellent.

    That being said, I would do some research on older 6.8L Fords, or even 6.2L gas new Fords as well. They'll drink more, but...

    I'd put a Truetrac in the front of an F150. I'm not familiar enough with the newer F150 rear axle to suggest there.

    I think Ox makes a selectable locker for the F150 front.
