I reluctantly picked Ford. Before my Ram I was always a Chevy guy. But my local Chevy dealer never seems to have parts on hand anymore. Even on recalls for which they know they will need certain parts.
I hope and pray that Chrysler will fare better under government control/ownership.
Definitely Ford. My 08 F150 was damaged in a hit & run in the last month and so I've since driven the current Ram and Silverado (rentals). Chevy was rough riding and lacked power. Never had a problem with the Ford except kinda weak for towing my travel trailer. Ram is more powerful and I liked the look for less money than Ford. Easy decision.
The Raptor isn't a bad choice into off-roading, to many people seem to think they're a serious street machine when that's the complete opposite of why they were built. I'm not a big off-road kind of person, I'd go with the Silverado though there's tons of options for those things.
