IMO the new ford trucks are so cool looking compared to the chevy's and dodges..

When dodge changed their pickup to the new style in 96(I think) I was a huge fan of them.. Then Ford outdid them.

How anybody could buy a silverado is beyond me.

Nice rig

not to mention the ford ended up being abot $100 a month less than the silverado would have been.

I don't like the new F150 body style at all. However, the F250-350's look sweet. Too bad they come with the Powerjoke instead of a real diesel. I love the look of the F350 dually long bed with the biggest cab, whatever they call it.

nice tow rig. I'm trying to sell my stroker to buy a 05 F150 for towing.

Funny, I thought International did build real diesels.... at least more "real" than Isuzu

i just couldnt pass up the deal on the new ford, i miss the dodge though i beat the hell out of that truck and didnt have any problems except the trans but that is expected from an automatic dodge. it was a good truck to say the least.

yes it was 94 when dodge changed over, and i think that all the trucks look ugly now.. I am glad I have my style ram, I just need to update the drive train, and Ill be set. Although if you do take the crome off of the new dodges, they look ok. As for the others I would think the same, just havent payed attention

dodge did change in 94 then again in 03. In 06 they have redesigned the interior, a few exterior changes, a new new suspension in the front, and a lot of N.V.H. controls.

I haven't completely warmed up the the F150 exterior, but it's growing on me. I was just coming around to like the last generation It has too much plastic and is too car-like, but then so are the Dodge & GM. Despite what the automotive press tells me, I cannot take the Nissan, Toyota, and Honda (especially the Honda, which makes the Lincoln and Escalade pickups look legit) seriously as full-size trucks. I hope the big three react to the Nissan an step up the content and innovation however.

The F150 interior, however, rocks.

the new f-150's are rated at like 9500 lbs for towing, it seems like a lot for a half ton but thats what they say. i know it pulls the 20ft trailer and jeep with no problem. i am happy with it.
