Just traded my 2011 Silver-ray-do LTZ crew cab in for a 2014 F-150 super crew. I can NOT get over how much better the ride is, how much quieter the cab is, and how much more room the back seat has. (I also got an extra foot on the bed (6 1/2)
I have owned all 3, and they ALL have problems. Some motors are better than others, some tranny’s are better, Some bodies hold together better,Some year models just totally tank.
I am a wannabe gear head:
I wouldn’t own a Ford 5.4 3 valve Triton (the one’s with the aluminum valve covers)
I wouldn’t own a 2001-03 Dodge Ram period.
I wouldn’t own a Chevy, period. Any of them (Sorry Racer)
I wouldn’t ever buy a new vehicle ever (Thanks to Dave Ramsey’s advice)
I wouldn’t ever buy the first model year of anything, …ever (again, life lesson)
I wouldn’t own a Diesel anything, ever…unless I made a living from hauling things ( and then I would still second guess it)
But,if you have patience and if you can turn a wrench,and have deep pockets I guess it doesn’t matter all that much.
(Sorry Brodie,Toyota doesn’t make MY list for the big 3)
