I own a business. I have bought several Silverado trucks, in which I will say, are the biggest pile of fucking shit on the planet. The truck cannot have a trailer behind it, without squatting so bad its not drivable down the work site, or the back roads we make, which I'll admit are rough. The Silverado is a joke here at work. I am all for quality, and what not, but I honestly believe a Chevrolet is built to do nothing more then look pretty. A Ford F150 STOCK 2WD sits higher then a Z71 Off Road Chevy same year and make, and the F150 2WD can haul more without squatting so bad that when you hit a bump you drag your fender out from under the truck.

I have several Ford's here and they have paid for themselves. We do abuse our trucks here but we don't really always get them to the dealership on the service dates. Yet here we have several Ford's that just simply out perform the chevy's... Most of the guys here with chevys will park them at the end of the road and walk or get a lift, rather then take their chevy down the abuse. I hear this crap from a guy here that is a die hard chevy man specifically because he owns a 1986 Chevy Silverado 2WD with a 305, in which hes had to have rebuilt 3 times, and the truck only has 135k miles on it. I myself own a 1979 that has had the carb worked on it a lot, and went through several carburetor rebuild kits. However my truck has the original motor and tranny in it. 700k miles of harsh abuse. 351 Cleveland is the motor!

I am a truck fanatic not a ford or gm fanatic. I appreciate any good looking truck regardless of the manufacturer. As to my preferences, I think Chevrolet made a phenominal truck through the late eighties. After 1990 and to the present Ford has the best thing out there. I use trucks for trucks and have beaten the hell outta all makes of trucks and the only ones that stand up these days is the Ford... It used to be chevy. I still own with pride a 82 Chevy C10 and am restoring it. My daily driver truck is a Ford Ranger.. If i had to buy a truck today, brand new, it would be a Ford

Once upon a time I was Chevy to the core, now I own a GMC, a Buick, a Jeep, and a Ford. I don't care what I drive as long as it's bonified Americana. I know my GMC wasn't made here, but it's still an American truck, not a Jap truck. Don't get me wrong, they make damn good trucks. But you will never see me own one.

Chevy gets the nod for a better ride, Ford gets the nod for ease of parts, Chevy gets the nod for cheaper parts, Ford gets the nod for making a lasting truck with a true solid axle, Chevy makes a lasting truck too but the interiors don't last quite as well, they all have ups and downs. I don't care what you like, make it work for you, then continue on with your vehicle abusive ways, keep on cruising till the fuel needle hits empty!

You need to quit being so thin skinned, all people can say stupid things.
So some guy in a Chevy said buy a real truck.......what do you expect from a Walmart shopper, intelligence?
Walmart shoppers have barely enough brains to handle the involuntary functions, much less voluntary!!!!

not too long ago is was in an argument with a GM guy, He kept saying OHV is much better than a DOHC, and that a 2v ls1 has better head flow than the new 5.0 yadda yadda. Their must be some sort of Chevy holy bible, OHV V8 is the best type of engine, no exceptions, Silverado out tows/hauls/powers/out runs/ out lives everything ever made, no exceptions, GM makes the highest quality cars, no exceptions, GM cars are 110% American, no exceptions, GM never took bailout, ford did, no exceptions. That sorta thing. Gets pretty annoying. Now they are s/c their big tractor engines, not too long ago they were complaining about ford doing the same thing, but with smaller, better engines. Oh, lets not forget those chevy people who owned 30 fords and none of them made it past 10,000 miles becuase the engine blew/caught fire or just had everything break on it simultaneously.

You realize that there are just as many idiotic ford owners as there are chevy owners? Some of them are even here! It has nothing to do with chevy. It's the person driving it and that person could be driving a chevy, a ford, a toyota, or pougot and be equally as stupid.
