    Same here, I've replaced a couple of things I fugged up on my own.

    The only problem I've really had with mine was fouling plugs, but that happened two times total. The last set of plugs I put in it have been fine now for over 2 years. Nothing I would consider major.

    I wonder if they ran the 3.5 instead of the 5.0 if it would have done better :hmm:

    I think where they lost was that they used a Rab instead of a Scab. It gave them power locks/windows + other fancy electronics, but they lost the space...

    My next truck will be a F150 with the 5.0, someday...

    interesting the ford sits in the middle and is the only reg cab. that means the ford is worth more especially cause you can buy a dudge crew for the same money

    Ever since mike Levine left pickuptrucks.com I have stopped paying attention. He was honestly the best truck journalist I've seen. He was unbiased 100% if chevy did better at something, he'd say it flat out.
