Right now I drive an '01 Chevy Silverado 1500. Don't really need the heavy duty 2500 or 3500. Mine is 2 wheel drive (i know, i know) but at the time I bought it, I didn't need 4x4. Now I do, badly. Looking at the GMC line. LOVE the sierras but also like the silverado's. Ford is ok, but WAAAAY too flashy for me. There's is such a thing as TOO much chrome. Some of those new ford trucks are nothing but chrome across the whole front of the truck. Won't buy dodge, period. Own one of those too and have paid for it in full about 2 times (seriously) with all the crap that's gone wrong with it (1 new trans, 1 re-built trans, new rear end, new head, etc....) I told my wife the next thing to go is the engine and if that happens, that stupid thing is getting "accidentally" pushed off a cliff. I do have to say, that out of all 3 major brands (Ford, chevy, and dodge) I do like dodge's styling the best. Their trucks look MEAN. But I don't want the baggage.
