New here from Calif.

I just came across this part of the site. I have had several big riggs but never a 1 ton for 25 years. I had a hard choice to make and have been a Chevy guy most of my life. My last dually owned was in 79 and swore to never own another. I could get a sweet deal on a Dodge but other than the Cummins I didnt care for them either. I settled on the Ford F350 mostly from friends that have all these different trucks. I really have no major complaints.
I knew once I got the truck that GM would fix all the things I didnt care for.
I will play with the Ford for another year then see what else is around.
I have raced cars all my life and have at least learned, The most horsepower and torque is not always the best combination for the life of the engine.
Looks like a GREAT site. DP
