I'll make sure that when I smoke a Ford or an Obama-Mbile in the 1/4 mile that they know we were in the bottom five...

let's revisit this in a couple years. i'm happy with my truck and have not had issues but i'd be lying if i said i didn't have my eye on it with a bit of skepticism.

not trying to be negative, if anything i think this is a good attitude to have when buying these things. be realistic and keep an eye on your truck so you can take care of any problems right away instead of having your head in the sand.

If you went through any discussion forum you would run away from that make of vehicle, the thing that keeps coming back to me is that when we buy a van between 1.5 to 3.5 tons we have no fears at all, we expect and get it to run to 150k without any great issues.
So why are these pick ups so fragile or is it just the fact we are passionate about our 'toys'
I ran an F150 for 5.5 years and loaded it up to 212K, still original tranny original axles, one disc change one damper change, now listen to others on forums the thing should have bombed out after 2 years, lets not be so frightened---- or buy a van !!
