I recently traded a 2008 F350 dually 4x4 with 3500 miles on it for a 2008 Dodge 3500 dually 4x4. Man what a difference. I know you Ford diehards won't agree but drive a Dodge first then argue. Better yet find someone who owns one and tow something. You won't be able to get to a Dodge dealer fast enough. The key points for the Dodge are it gets better MPG and it has more power. Yes more power. Remember the Cummins diesel is a true in line 6 cylinder diesel motor. Its built for class 6 and 7 trucks and Dodge put it in a class 3 rated truck. Not to mention with a 4:10 axle it can tow 16,700 pounds. Thats on paper. I know it can pull more. The 350 is rated for 15000LBS and the 450 for 16000LBs on paper...With a maxium load one has to floor the gas pedal in the Ford. It takes awhile to get moving. That eats lots of fuel. Also have you ever noticed the lag the truck has when you punch the accelerater without a load. That incidently is not a new problem. The 6.0's for also know for that...For the record I've owned a few Fords in my time so I know what I'm taking about. Once you drive a Dodge or better yet tow something you will be amazed. You'll feel a little guilty, like I did, but you'll have to admit that the Dodge is better.
