Re: ford vs chevy

okay, I didn't mean he conquered the hole, I'm talking about the chain running from his hitch the the Blazer, have to look closely to see, it's a Chevy rescued by ford classic, and that's what I meant by "I think this picture speaks for itself"

duh, havent you seen the commercial where the icebreaker super tanker gets stuck and they have to air-lift a SuperDuty in to pull it out? that's obviously what's happened in that pic of the stuck Chebby, which explains why the Bronco is so clean [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: ford vs chevy

I agree! The "whose rig is best" argument just starts a big pizzin contest. I have a blazer that is my daily driver. a F350 dualy that I use for the heavy stuff, and am working on grafting a small Cherokee onto a full size wagoneer frame as a mud toy!

I like them all.

Re: ford vs chevy

Thank you for mentioning the torque issue. The general public is somehow trained to look at only hp figures. For towing or rock crawling I'd gladly take a 5.4 over Chevy's 5.3 anyday, for exactly the reasons you mention.

This is NOT to say I think Ford is better than Chevy. I like 'em both. I like whoever produces the product that works for my needs. All I'm saying is look at your torque specs, too folks!

You'll find many of these smaller displacement newer motors are boasting relatively large hp numbers but don't always have much more torque than an old 350 or 351, and/or it's nowhere in the powerband that's of use. How often are you spinning your motor at 4500 while crawling? Bogging or sand running is a different matter entirely however.....
