First let me ask, have you had both Dodge and Ford Diesels to make the comparison?
As for my cabinet, you can drive a Ford, Chevy or Dodge. really don't matter as long as they are diesels.
When you put Banks kits on them, they all run "much" better.
My Ford didn't have the banks kit.If I had put one on it, the automatic Transmission would have gone for sure as it was making some funny noises and the transmission shop advised getting a Dodge as the auto transmissions were terrible in the Fords and still are.
Better not take on the Dodge "High Output" that has the Banks in it though. Sorry to say I don't have that one. You will get the surprise of your life. They only put the 6 speed standard shifts in this Dodge. No auto trans will handle the power.
Fords weakest link is their auto transmissions. That's why I sold mine.
I have two friends who have them (the High Output Dodge with the Banks kit) and there hasen't been a Ford or Chevy to take them while under tow yet. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
In fact, written on their bug sheilds they have---"Ford This" in large letters.
Straight from the factory---The Dodge HO rules. Put the Banks on both and the Dodge Cummins HO, still rules. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
After having both Ford and Dodge diesels, my first pick would be the Dodge with or without the banks kits in either one.
Just my 2 cents worth after having the two brands.
This is just like calibers, we all have our favorites.
I'd be the first to admit if a mistake were made but, in this instance the only mistake would have been, if i had bought a Chevy diesel.
One thing for sure, it wouldn't be a "Chevy" I'd be seen in. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I think those are popular in Virginia though. Are you still driving your Chevy or did you go to a "Japanese" brand??
It's Dodge diesel all the way for this candidate.
As an add on here---If you keep that up Vern, I will sell your rifle out from under you to pay for campaign costs. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

I see more Silverados than Dodges around here. Last camp I was in had 4 Silverados, one Dodge and an old Bronco II - it was okay, the Dodge owner hung his head in shame appropriatly [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
