Re: tranny, someone I know who just bought a 2012 said after he did a battery-pull reset to clear out a stuck condition in Sync, it of course reset the transmission memory and forced it to relearn. Since then it's apparently driven better as well, it seems all the yahoos test driving it taught the transmission bad habits.

Not so quick there. There are still problems on some 2012's. And have not resolved those. As for the 13's I haven't heard yet. Its still to early.

FWIW I have one of the early 2011's, bought it in November of 2010, and am just as happy now as the day I bought it. Only problem I've had was a chaffed wire inside the fenderwell that caused some intermittent codes and warnings. Other than that not a single problem.

I've had an '05 Dodge and my father an '06 Chevy, both diesels, and have been happiest with the Ford. Honestly I can't see myself going back to either but all 3 manufactures make a heck of a nice truck.

Best of luck and enjoy whichever you choose

gm,dodge and ford really are all 3 nice trucks. engines and trans r pretty close i believe. that being said i disassemble and reassemble all 3 routinely and the build quality nod def goes to the ford. followed by the ram and i put the gm last. drive em both several times if u can and dont read too much into the hoopla. take care of em and they all will last and perform... my opinion

Ended up buying a 2013 F350. So far I'm loving it! Glad to be rid of the 6.4!

Did you drive the dodge, how did it feel? My bro in law has the 2011 (dodge 2500) and I hate how you can't see over the hood, that was one of the factors that helped steer me to my Ford.

My brother hauls RV's to all over the us, canada and alaska. he traded in his '03 5.9 for a
7.3 at 300K miles. he traded the 7.3 in at 277K for a 08 silverado diesel. After being out
of work for 2 years [knee and hip replacements] he traded that in at 700+K for another
silverado diesel a year ago. already has 300K on that. he liked all BUT the chevy
was the better on repairs for him. he is a stickler for maint. and fixing problems right
even if it costs a little more. he was never stranded "on the road" with the silverados
but was with both the 5.9 and 7.3's

roll the dice take your best guess and pray .

I've owned both a 99 7.3 and an 01 5.9. don't know what i'd buy if i had to.

Not sure you could go wrong with either. Personally, I think the new Super Duties are ugly, while the Dodges are a little better looking, but that's just me. I hope Ford does a good job on the upcoming redesign.

The new RAMs are much better than the 20yr old truck ford wants to pass as a 2013... Lol come on... It's an insult to just keep on changing the front fenders to call it a new truck... Lol

I call it the Joan rivers of the truck world.

Drive them both and decide on the truck you like. Take a look at all the issues fords have compared to the GMs and RAMs. Gets very easy at that point...

WOW that is a statement,
I have a 2011 and 2012 Ford and trust me they are a tad better than a 20yr old truck.....

The Dodge is a great product for the price, I drive mine a lot and like the Ford under my butt..it rides better and has a lot better interior..( except my arm rest). All vehicles have issues ALL of them..it all comes down to what you can afford and your preference...

I have drove and owned all of the big 3 manufacturers, and settled in for a new 6.7L F350 Ford. The Fords seem like a better built truck and have had few problems with them , wasn't a fan of the 6.0L Ford diesel though and had a couple minor glithches with one and it never left me stranded but love the 6.7 Liter so far and believe most other reviews prove that as well. Fuel economy and performance is great and I am sure it would fair better then the competition on a majority of comparisons.
And to top it off , I prefer the looks of the Ford over the others as well so I couldn't be happier.

Cool 2005 Ford F350 Crew Cab 4x4 with 6.0l diesel

In the past 2 weeks my Ford has been in the shop twice.....the first time needing a new #7 ejector....after picking up the truck and 1600.00 later I drove 50 miles, stopped to refuel...started the truck....low oil pressure light came on, oil gauge dropped to nothing and the truck shut down...back to the shop.....metal found in the oil pressure relief valve.....traced back to lots of metal in the oil pump....conclusion.....need a new engine......truck has had 3 turbos, several oil leaks that took multiple visits to fix......other that ALL that the truck was fine....Did I mention there is only 40k miles on this truck....looks great but not getting a new engine......Now I need a new truck to haul my Camper and tow my boat......Diesel seems to be the only way to go......I have had a Dodge (V10) and the trcuk started to fall apart and the transmission failed......now the Ford is Dead....Wish I could buy the Ford interior with the Dodge Cummins and the Chevy Tranny....but since I can't.....Does Ford still own Cummins? Is the 6.7 Cummins related to the Ford 6.7 in any way? Any guidance is truly appreciated.
