Love my Silverado, I have owned Ford F-150 and a Ram. In terms of maintenance and having to replace failed parts, both the Ford and Ram were brutal. The Silverado is a smooth ride, the other truck I would love to have is the Tundra. The Tacoma does not have enough cargo space for my fishing trips. But, you see what's happening here in this debate? It comes down to personal preference and each brand has its pros and cons. Hard to pick a clear winner.
