I would try and find a dealership that is selling both brands you are interested in..... or find a dodge and ford dealership close together...
go drive both, back to back.. not a week apart.. put them side by side in the parking lot and tell the salesman to go away. its an expensive decision no matter whether you buy ram or ford.
the ford is better than the previous offering 6.4l, but it has not been trouble free. While unpopular to say around this forum, the 6.7l engines are failing. They do have connecting rod and valve issues, along with an extremely fragile injection pump. I love the interior layout of the ford! the ram has a very proven engine platform. previous generation trucks left alot to be desired in matching the durability and reliability of the engine. By going to the Aisin trans and a frame rated for 30,000 lbs...the ram laramie may be a contender for the KR and Platinum Fords.I dont think you would go too wrong with either truck...
Of course, GM is still stuck in 2002... !! hahaha..
