I wouldn't be above buying the Dodge. I own a 2006 6.0, and it's been trouble free. So far. Bought it used last May, and the OASIS was pretty scary. (I got the OASIS after I bought the truck) It pretty much lived in the dealership the last few months before I got it, but they must have got it fixed, because all I've done is change oil. Or, maybe going from being a patch truck to a farm/highway truck made a difference. 2 things that really pissed me off about the truck was the CD player quit, and I found out they're all POS things that barely make it off warranty, and the speedometers are crap too. Especially if you live in a cold climate - they either won't work, or they'll read too high or low. One would think that a truck with a $61,000 price tag would have higher quality parts in it. I get around 18 mpg at 60 mph according to the computer, but I'm not sure if that's US or Canadian. I really like the SD for it's looks and rugged construction, but the engine is a nightmare to work on and has a rep for blowing head gaskets, plugging EGR's, seizing turbo's, and bad injectors. I'm sure the Dodge's have problems too, but they probably aren't any worse than the Fords.
