The Ram 1500 rides better and looks better.

The F150 tends to tow better (Chassis seems to be better sorted for it) and has a better drivetrain in my opinion.

F150

3.7L DOHC - 302 bhp - 278 lb-ft

5.0L DOHC - 360 bhp - 380 lb-ft

3.5L Ecoboost - 365 bhp - 420 lb-ft

6.2L OHC - 411 bhp - 434 lb-ft

When it comes to the trans the Ford has a better low gear with a 3.08 Axle than the Ram with a 4.10 and more even splits.

Ram 1500 - 3.00, 1.67, 1.50 (Kickdown Gear), 1.00, 0.67

Ford F150 - 4.17, 2.84, 1.52, 1.14, 0.86, 0.69

Nothing wrong with a Dodge and as long as I can buy a new Crew Cab 4x4 for $25,000 Ill keep buying them. I dont tow much weight on a routine basis and the Dodge works just fine for what I do and cost less money.

PS There are not any bad trucks these days. The market wont stand for it.
