I see more new Fords on other Forums than GMC or Dodge or even a Chevy that i spend time on. Up here Ford has been number one for 57 years. Can not touch the, maybe a old Fargo was better in the 60's. My one uncle drove one and the other had International.

That's good Bob. My 2016 F350 has 33000 miles and so far oil & filter, fuel filter, air filter and new wiper blades. Towing 17500# for almost 50% of those miles. My experience only.

It depends where you live. I see more Rams here, Fords 2nd, then Toyota and Chevy's last. And the Toyota numbers seem to be growing fast.

I very rarely see any GM DRW out here in Oregon. Dealers don't seem to have many. Probably why they're 3rd behind Ram and Ford in DRW sales.
It's a toss up here in Oregon where we camp between Ford and Ram.

Based on a lot of reports on several of the Ford diesel forums--Ford is no better at 'customer liason' than Ram--they just don't take care of the individual owner. Having a good dealer is great, but they are always limited by what Ford and Ram say they can do/cover/repair under warranty. If you have a bad/unresponsive dealer, you're probably going to be frustrated with both dealer and company....
I have had several items over the years with Ford ESP coverage that weren't covered due to exclusions/exceptions/details that at first glance at the brochures/ads would lead one to think just about everything would be covered--not so.

As to the OP question--can't answer to changing from Ram to Ford, but from '10 450 to '17 450, day and night difference better.

bob caldwell,

Great pic, but gotta be way more to story than a front suspension giving out--the rear axle is also sideways. I would say the truck went thru the ditch behind it at speed...
