How could you possibly hate the look of that GMC? Its the most fawkin awesome looking Sierra ive ever seen. I'm gonna have to say the GMC, though I love lifted regular cab fullsizes so I would have to consider the Dodge too. Ive seen the Raptor in person and while its cool I dont like the corny decals and the tires look small

Its fugly, plain and simple. Looks like a straight off the assembly line bro-mobile. I just dont care for the looks. The Raptor is the only race proven one in the bunch and Ive seen them in action in person and for a tuck that you can walk into a dealership and buy it was pretty damn impressive. As for the frame bending that another poster mentioned, that was proven to be driver abuse and no fault of the truck. An regular truck frame would have folded if subjected to the same circumstances that bent the frames of those handful of Raptors on the same bump.

agree to disagree then, it looks way better than the raptor which I think is the one that looks like the straight-off-the-assembly-line bro truck.

No reason to be upset man, the op asked about these 3 trucks and I gave my opinion. Who said we all need to agree on the looks of every truck out there? I think its ugly, you dont. Not a big deal man.

The GMC only looks good because of the lift and the tires so no for that.
The Dodge Power wagon is great on trails, looks good, but its a DODGE.Its shit. SO NO.
The Dodge Ramrunner is as gay of a name that a truck can get.It contridicts itself by saying it out runs itself. And it is ugly as fck! P.O.S
The Raptor is the fastest of the bunch in rough terrain, the frame bending was select group of guys who pushed way to hard(try that with the others and see if more then a bent frame happens). dodges rear end might shit or the motor pops out. The Raptor has the 6.2L,5.4L, and an ECOBOOST. I choose the ECOBOOST Raptor.
But my fave choice if it were up there is the FX4 Ranger.Fits the trails better and maybe with a lucky chance in the future, they will get an ECOBOOST too!

If I really had to choose Dodge>Raptor>GMC....I'd rather have an F150 FX4 or F250.
