Buy the ford. 96-02 dodge's rot out under the doors and 03's was the first of the somewhat new motor they put in it and its underpowered so if anything I would get the 04.5 and up you will be more happy with the common rail to bad its quieter than the old 24 valves and the 12's. But this is from my experience because I was going to buy one and I have a friend that has only owned dodge rams diesels he had a 96 to start off with 12 valve then a then a 01 24 valve and now he has a 04.5 and its a 24 valve common rail. But its more personally choice so its up to you but just from experience of looking around I wouldn't buy a dodge that was an 03 or older due to they rot unless you are good at body work or you got money to pay someone to do body work.
