In purchasing a new truck the GVWR is very portNt to me. The 2012 F 350 DRW was 13,300 lbs, GM was 200 lbs less, the Dodge was 1,200 lbs less. The Dodge 1 Ton DRW only carried 200 lbs more than my 2008 F350 SRW . Fords new 6.7 is made by Ford, not Navistar or International. Ford also sells more F series trucks than the others combined .
Drive thru any campsite, Ford will outnumber any other brand.

Dodge introduced the first, crew cab, the first club cab, the first quad cab, the first real diesel in a passenger truck and now the first diesel in a 1/2 ton, buy the first and best or buy the trying catch up. I'm not a Dodge fan there are just no alternatives.
I don't know why people (news media included) keep claiming Dodge is the first one with a diesel in a 1/2 ton. GM did it over 30 years ago. Then they stopped about 15 years ago. Maybe I'll build a truck and claim to be the first manufacturer to ever put a carburated engine in a truck. That hasn't been done in about 25 years so I guess that would make me first!

Here in CA, building a truck or any vehicle, an individual has to contend with the city & county ordinances where they live, CA DMV, CA Air Resources Board, and CA EPA.
Whatever you decide to build good luck with it and happy motoring.
