Re: How Tough are the New 4x4 2500HDs ???
I know you would rather push a chevy than drive a ford but I think in the 3/4 tons ford has a lot more to offer for offroad. Solid front axle and way more ground clearance. Ever notice how low the frames on a new chevy 3/4 ton are. Looks like they will get hung up on a curb. I think with the body lift the frame will be even more visible and look lower.
Towing, daily driving is your choice but for offroad the superduty is designed much better.
Not to mention the 6.0L makes more hp and torque than the DMAX. Choice of 5 speed auto, 5 or 6 speed manual in the ford.
I don't think anything likes to pull with all fours tires unless you drop in lockers.
