Pete vs Ken

They are both great trucks, just depends on the options you like, I find the KW has a nicer sleeper, with a little more room, the Pete has a nicer cab and dash area, so It boils down to personal taste.

hahaha, as you can see, the brand loyalty is pretty heavy in the big trucks as well.

Get a KW and then see if you can hang with the one in my garage
Cat power is a sweet thing
On edit: If you want a huge selection of accessories for you truck then look at a Pete, they rival a honda civic for aftermarket trinkets.
