Looking at new trucks, Dodge is the hot ride right now, on paper anyway. Growing up in AG/Farming, Dodge was the kiss of death. GMs better, with Fords at the top of the heap. I'm driving Jeeps and Fords right now. 06 Ford Ranger and an 05 Ford
Freestyle. Ranger is bullet proof, Freestyle trouble free @ 115k. 05 and 06 Jeep Wranglers, 6 and 4 cylinder. They need more from time to time because of low quality parts, not engineering. Chrysler is/was notoriously cheap when it came to wear items. That is why
Ram trucks eat front ends, u-joints, etc. That Liberty recall.....those trailing arms were made by the lowest bidder..... with the cheapest metal they could procure... As Smitty pointed out, for the price they get, grease fittings are not an unreasonable expectation! The hype is that RAM ( Dodge) trucks have been gone through and " upgraded"....time will tell. I will say that the Dodge Ram
regular cab short bed is the best looking truck on the market right now. Sure is pretty.....don't know that I would gamble 30 k and
up on one though.....
