    depends on what time of year it is
    next towrig

    I dont like any of the new trucks, dodge did away with the extended cab:mad: and thats why they wont sell me another truck. I dont want a four door, or regular cab, and I certainly dont want a megacab. I dont want a GM because I would need to put a set of L5 loader wheels on it to fill up those big dumb GM wheel wells- whats up with that anyway? who the hell is designing this stuff:confused: I like the older fords, but the new ones just dont do it for me, and Toyota never came through with the cat powered full size unit that they talked about-no ,I dont want the crewcab, shortbed hino powered dually that Ive seen pictures of even if it was available. Am I too picky? NO, for the money that they want, you should be able to get what makes you happy. I will hang on to what I have for as long as I can, and when I need another one I guess I will have to build my own. Maybe my next one will be a class 6 rig with a sleeper and some better capabilities, or maybe I.H. and Mack will get back in the pickup truck game!

    Ford

    True the Cummings is a good engine, but the rest of the truck is junk.

    After a few years, have any of the new models changed your mind?

    I'd still go for a Ford rig.

    I'd probably go for a Dodge.
