    I have a 1964 chevy 3/4 ton stepside. I got this truck from my grandpa after it sat for 14 years. All i had to do to it was change the oil, replace the fuel line, put new gas in it, and replace the spark plugs, and it started right up. Chevy makes the most dependable truck not the road. A machanic friend of mine has also to me that he prefures to work and them because of how much better they are made compared to fords and dodges.:) :)

    Here we go again!

    How come you Dodge and Chevy boys always have to ask what's the better truck?:rolleyes:

    All of us who drive Fords don't have to justify it. We already know we drive the best trucks!:D

    I had an 89 Cummins 3/4 ton. Had 280,000 miles on it when I traded it in and STILL got $4500 trade... My next vehicle will be a 3/4 or 1 ton Dodge quad cab 6 speed, when I can afford it.

    I like the fact that the Cummins 5.9 has been around forever, and is very underpowered in the configuration it goes into the Dodge. How many other vehicles have used the Powerstroke? My second choice (and the only choice in the 70's and 80's era for me) is the Chevy with a 350 or a 454. Can't beat the reliability and ease (not to mention cheap parts) of working on them.

    As far as Diesel's go I have to go with the Chevy. I think the Ford's have more low end torque but almost too much. They have ripped a few tranies out as a result of too much torque. Dodge's have had too many problems with the tranies as well.

    CHEVY - Extremely Quiet, Great Power, and by far the smoothest riding truck I have ever been in.

    Im a chevy guy but i got some good saying for all of them
    Fix Or Repair Daily
    Found On Road Dead
    First On Race Day

    I'd rather be cummin than strokin

    Can Hear Every Valve Rattle On Long Extended Trips- I hate to rip on Chevy's but this is a good one

    COMDr- Its called a carb, and when it is below freezing and you dont drive your truck for a week and dont have any starter fluid to put in it, it takes a while to start. And are you trying to say your Toyota is better than my Chevy? Who can tow more and who has more HP? Just wait till i put my Suburban in your ***.
