I have a2004 F-350 SRW Lariat w/6.0 litre Power Stroke and Torque-Flite 5-speed auto transmission. It will pull anything, anywhere and do it in luxurious fashion. The last 3 trucks I've had have been Ford diesels, and I wouldn't have anything else. I don't have anything against Dodge or Chevy, just don't have any experience with them. Good luck.

Dodge all the way, the Cumins is a tough act to follow. I have owned 2 of them now and the only problems where items other than that motor. Best HP and tourque if you get the HO option. If I had to pick a second it would be the Ford for sure but the GM stuff scares me. . .

No doubt the Cummins, everyone I know who owns one has had zero problems and still runs like the day it was bought. (No suprise coming from dodge) The best motor every made IMO

Besides, Id rather be a Cummin then a Stroken

I have a 94.5 Direct Injection (first powerstroke) Ford and love it. Just turned over 100k on it, and these older Powerstrokes are awesome trucks.

CHEVY: Best auto. trans./weakest motor (in my opinion)

FORD: Good auto and man. trans/fine motor too.

DODGE; Best motor (especially favorable if you want to do HP add-ons)/good man. trans (but not so hot auto trans)

If I were doing a brand new 2005/6 I would go Ford w/ auto trans. IMHO
