Not sure I am following your comment about Ford can't compete with the wort truck market. Are you saying Ford does not compete in that they do not make an offroad truck that also has work truck capablities? If so, I agree as the Raptor has limited towing and payload capablities.

The F350 PS has significantly higher work capablities than the Ram Cummins 3500 in all categories. I like the Ram, don't get me wrong, but it is falling behind Ford and GM in regards to true work capablities. I am hoping their models to come will bode higher capablities so when it is time for me to buy new trucks I can keep Ram in the mix.

The Raptor is nice. I test drove one, however, after tons of research, I would still take a Ram. Do You realize how much replacement parts will cost after a few years in a Raptor? They say to outfit a truck with the same capibilities as a Raptor, it would cost You $20,000 or so....give or take a few thousand, lolol.
