Ford vs Chevy: '00-'01 Half Ton

While confidence is high that this thread will burst into flames or spiral into chaos...I thought I'd give it a shot hoping some of you have a substantiated take. I know there are some whom dwell here that are current or former car dealers, wrenches, and what not.

Along with considering a Jeep Wrangler to replace my daily driver, I will also look at some 6 & 7 year old full-size trucks based on their affordability and abundance. I would love to hear some opinions on Ford F150 vs Chevy/GMC C/K 1500.

Unless the F-150 spontaneously combusts. They did a recall on that, right? ...something about the cruise control switch... Make sure it has been fixed before buying any F-150 in that age range.

Ford trucks have been the best sellers for 30 consecutive years for a reason.

I have an 03 F150. I bought it instead of a Chevy for a few reasons. I was told by a knowledgeable source that Chevy interiors tend to fall apart. Plus, the Ford cabin is quieter and safer. Just some food for thought.

I've got an 00 F150 4x4 with about 100k. I've had not major problems.

Heres what I've owned since high school. Only troublesome one was the first one, but that was the one mom bought that i pretty much trashed, so the transmissions and rear end was self inflicted wounds. If you want a reliable tough truck, I always say go with a ford. I really don't think theres anything wrong with a chevy, but I don't plan on switching till i get a bad F-150.

According to Polk, there are more Chevy trucks regestered than ANY other truck. Ford trucks MAY out sell Chevy, but there is undeniable proof that Chevy's outlast Ford.

The new Silverado is very very very close to passing the F150 in sales this year.... Then you add the Sierra.... GM owns the truck market

I have to admit, It makes me a little uncomfortable being in a thread where Rex and Dale are rubbing petroleum jelly over one another.
