Re: Chevy vs. Ford vs. Dodge Truck
I'm pulling with a '95 Chevy 3500. It's not a 4x4, but it is a dually, and
we put a supercharger, a 4.63 rear differential and a Gear Vendor aux tranny
onto it. Anyway, the same basic truck, we just beefed it up to handle the
heavy load. We pull a VERY large, heavy rig and have been very happy with
the set-up. It's been back to the dealership for a few minor problems
(cruise control went wonky, windshield wiper, etc), but never a problem with
the engine or drivetrain.
If I were to buy another rig right this minute, and I were still going to
pull a heavy rig, I would think hard about a Dodge diesel for the gas
mileage. If I were going to stick with a gas engine, then I'd buy a clone
to what I have in a heartbeat. It's a little embarassing how much I love my
truck---my husband says he knew I loved him the day I let him actually drive
my beloved dually. :-D
