 ford versus chevy

I am seriously considering buying with the Ford Superduty w/the 6.0 diesel or the Chevy HD with the Duramax. In ten words or less, which would our experts on this boards recommend and why? Also, which is going to get me better fuel mileage (and about what can I expect?)??

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

The powerstroke has had problems, but I don't like Chevy.

Your pay back for the 1 ton diesel is ~ 180K miles, longer for a 3/4 ton. The Ford has recently had problems with the powerstroke. The GM is a little new for me as personally they have had 3 strike outs before this one. I went for the Cummins I want to be assured that it is going to pay back.

Love the triton V8 supercab, but it is not diesel.
the dealer can give you a deal because every one is getting diesel.Sorry to many words and did not even answer your question.

Deeremd; I trade pickups every other December. Used to be a Ford man till the Ford dealers turned into jerks, been a Chevy man the last two just because the Dealer has been super. Trucks were a toss up. Having a good dealer is 90% of your decision. Frank.

You guys are brutal. I have owned 34 fords and have never had a bad one. My current (02) F-250 5.4L is an awsome truck, I have no complaints.
