Anybody switch from Dodge to Ford? Happy with decision?
I tried to do a search for this info but didn't really find what I was looking for.
So, I'm a Cummins guy. I won't go thru my whole decision process of why I picked the Dodge other then I considered the Cummins to be the better engine. I've owned more Fords than any other vehicle and have always had good luck with them (but these were all gasers). I’ve just been kicking around the idea of trying out a Powerstroke. There is nothing wrong with my Dodge, never had a problem with it. Guess I just like variety and seem to get bored with my vehicles after a few yrs.
For creature comfort, looks and price purposes I would be looking for a 05-06 vehicle which would be the 6.0. I am well aware of what fails on these vehicles. All trucks have their issues. For the larger number of Powerstrokes that are sold vs. Dodges/Chevys, the percentage of problem vehicles is probably similar. For what I want to do in the way of mods(hp/torq goals), I would have to do studs on my Cummins anyway. Also, I may save some money doing the other 6.0 fixes vs. the trans in the Dodge.
So, has anybody switched from a Dodge to a Ford? Were you happy with your decision or did you go back? Thanks.
