Well with the Ford your getting a new engine but so far seems to have a very good track record and is very powerful. Ford usually holds up better over all engine and body wise. Now the Cummins is a good motor no doubt but i have heard of some issues with the 6.7 common rail, but i cant get over that all the small things break on the interior and the body. Another thing is that Ford will stand behind the motor because they build it. But it all depends on $ and what you want to do with it but i would say go Ford and you wont be disappointed

6.7 psd!!!!!!!!!!!! cummins does make a good motor. by the time the motor blows up you will have went through half a dozen transmissions and two bodys

2011 6.7 psd looks better then the 2011 dodge IMO
the 6.7 psd turns out 400 hp and 800 lbs of torque. i cant even get that out of my truck with tuner,exhaust,and intake!!!. cummins 350hp and 650 lbs
plus ford makes one helll of a trans

I like the ford better, that's why I'm on a ford forum. I doubt you get an unbiased opinion on here.

My last truck was a 2500 Dodge mega cab. It was a great truck. 150,000km (95,000) miles. Not a single problem, other than a wiper motor that was replaced under warrenty.

They don't have as much power from stock as the Ford or the Chev, but i had a chip in mine and it was great.

The Ford seems to be a little more "refined" on the interior. The box is bigger, you can only get a short box in the Mega cab, and I liked all of the room inside.

If you do alot of heavy towing, the tranny is supposed to be the weak link in their set up. I didn't have any issues though. I have read that the motor propably has the most potential out of the Ford, Chev, or Dodge, but their drive trains can't take the stress that Fords can. Once again, the one I had was great. Over all Ford has more to offer, but I did like the Cummins.

i had a late model 09 megacab, 6.7 auto, laramie....loved the truck, even though it was down on rated power, it was a great tow truck and averaged 14-15 mpg in overall town driving, and 18-20 unloaded hiway....towing my 15k boat, about 8 mpg...overall ride was very good....overall quality, not as good as my new ford, but no complaints...EXCEPT FOR...the turbo came apart at 11k, scattered metal through both exhaust and intake, dodge replaced turbo, but did nothing about engine....the turbo is subject to choking up with soot from the egr....dodge claims that they have all this fixed, but they made the same claim when i bought mine a year and a half ago....i now have an f-350 that i think is an overall better truck....more power, better feel for quality, about the same fuel mileage, tows very well....if dodge truely has their egr problem fixed, i wouldn't hesitate to reccomend the truck, but my experience says, go ford...

I had a '08 6.7 Mega and I loved it. I did the deletes and never had a problem. The '10-'11 Dodges are LEAPS AND BOUNDS ahead of the old ones. My father in law has a 2010 2500 TRX4 Hemi and he loves it. He does hunts for folks out on my ranch every weekend so the truck sees some abuse. Last time I looked it had 43k on it and he has'nt had a problem. If you plan on driving the truck for 150k or more go with the Cummins
