Sad to see these posts go into a nasty direction, all three make good vehicles and yes sometimes you get a lemon from all three. First question is does the manufacturer stand behind their product? ...

Lynwood all three brands have great trucks and engines. I am pretty sure that Ford has been using the CGI block material longer than the Cummings at least in this class of engines. By the way Ford...

I don’t know how much difference the ten speed verses the older six speed tranny as I have not drove a 2020 truck especially while towing. The Ike Gauntlet test showed the new Ford was awesome in...

Just did some comparisons on my 2019 DRW one ton and (RipNCís truck) SRW.
Yellow sticker on SRW 4539, DRW 5518, so my DRW has a supposedly 979 lb advantage. Yellow stickers are a bit misleading in...

I am not positive but it seems that TV would tow more weight than that 16,600 rating. As others stated it is usually the GVW and RAWR that do not meet the ratings for towing fifth-wheels.
