That was my exact dilemma as well. It took me forever to decide between Ram and F150 FX4. I decided to go with the ram as I liked the auto 4X4 transfer case. Ford does not offer this and where I live it is an asset for sure. I did not drive the new 5.0 Ford but the Hemi is insane with power. The milage seems to be the same as my 2008 5.3 Chevrolet. My only issues so far are rusting bumpers but I guess Im not alone.
The Ford had a rougher ride to me but had more clearance on the front bumper. I beleive Fords locking diff is probably better than the Dodge anti spin but I am not sure of this either. The interior of my Ram is not cracking and is still as solid as when I bought it.
To me the Ram looks better and performance was better so that is what I chose and I love it so far.
