Yeap I read that also :~) Dodge is really picking up the pace,if the trucks didn't look 4 foot thick,and have the dredded death wobble they would be a serious contender for Ford....

The new truck look twice as good as the older models IMHO

I like the first and second gen Dodges with the 12v, but totally agree with you on the death wobble. My 01 3500 drw liked to try to kill me when i would drive over bridge expansion-joints on the highway!

I've always been a ford guy though

It will be an interesting read. All 3 have stepped up their games. I don't have any problem with the Dodge styling, inside or out.

ford seems to copy the styling. first dodge went with the big bold grill. then ford did, then dodge changed there dually fenders, then ford copied them in 2011 and made the grill even bigger. i bet ford brings out dually fenders like the 2011 dodge smooth ones in the next few years

I really hope not. Those smooth fenders are hideous imo. Can't stand them. I like the current Ford dually fenders.

Yeap,I would Like to see how the Dodge does on the frame twist!

I really do feel having a Frame to stiff is a negative,but straight up street driving and pulling Your not gonna know if it's Boxed or C-channel ....

What would be an interesting test would be to have a course set up where it pulled the tires off the ground Like those ramps,and see which truck comes out the other end...My money would be on Ford,Caue the tires will touch and help pull it through the course....That stiff frame on the Chebby will have it hung up for sure!

Thinking about that Ramp test ??? I wonder if the ramps were spaced different or even a little higher than when the tested the Chebby??? Huuummm Cause it would seem the Ford Front end would have More Travel than the Chebby and that would cause them to change something to get the tires off the ground Huuummm ???
