Default Which truck would you rather have?

hey guys, im bored and have been checking out trucks on the internet. Im just curious to see who would choose which of these three "super" off roaders... Based off of apparent 'ready to off road-ness' lol

So either gmc all terrain:


Or Ford SVT raptor:


Or Dodge Ram Power Wagon:

Raptor. I hate the look of the GM and you couldnt pay me enough to own a Dodge anything.

Power Wagon. I love Ford's but I think the Raptor is ugly as hell. An I won't touch a damn GM vehicle not to mention it is ugly also.

The GMC.

The Raptor is a homosexual fad that started to suck when every rich teenage douchebag decided he wanted one. Besides, the Raptor has BFG All-Terrains from the factory. What a poor choice in tire for sugar sand which is basically all we have in Florida.

The Dodge didn't show up, and I don't feel like looking, so I picked the GMC.

Well.....First off Screw the GMC

The Raptor, pretty good in the desert and such. Built of Higher speed stuff, like Baja. Not as well in the offroad/trails area for pre 2012 models. 2012+ we'll have to wait and see..the changes made could make or break it. It does still look funny though

The PowerWagon..good in the slower off-road trail end of things. Deep mud, trails, recovery, etc i think it would do pretty decent. Looks pretty good

The Ram Runner...Ram's Raptor equivalent. Probably just as good as the Raptor in the eyes of the people who will be buying it. Die hard racers may say different, but they probably wouldn't run either the Runner or the Raptor in a race..straight from the factory. I think it has a nicer look to it than the Raptor.

They all perform better than a base truck would in the areas they are built for. If i had to chose one as a daily driver though..I'd go with the Powerwagon. Can get it in a 3/4 ton model, has the winch integrated into the front, looks nice, appears to perform well in the woodlands and should in snow more so than a Pre-runner style truck would. It's simply more practical in my book.

Ram Runner will out preform Power Wagon 2:1.
Raptors are ok, but i've been in a few of them, Can anyone say Frame bending?
The GMC All-terrain is a concept anyways, I currently own a Buick, but i wouldn't by the All-Terrain, its ugly.
