I have owned just about every truck you can imagine. I have owned a Ford 250, Dodge 1500, Chevy 2500, Toyota Tundra, and a Nissan Titan. We all see the commercials of the Nissan Titan and the most reliable truck the Tundra, but can we really believe that? First to say my Tundra has caused some of the biggest problems, along with my Dodge 1500. The Titan to me was not a truck and the price was crazy. My Chevy has been pretty good with many minor problems; but the BEST TRUCK has defiantly been my Ford F-250. I have just around 290,000 miles on it and have had no problems, besides normal wears. It is roomy, it can haul anything I put on it, and gets alright gas mileage.

I have a 2000 F250 4x4 that's a beast. It has 320,000 miles and hasn't had any problems. It still runs great and the people who make Dodge is Daimler-Chrysler. Ford also used to manufacture Jeeps in WW2 after the small company Phantom couldn't produce them in mass quantities.

Its all in how the vehicle is maintained is what determines how long it lasts. I have owned Jeeps, Fords, Chevys, and Dodges and to tell you the truth they have all been great vehicles to me, but they all had one thing in common, they all needed worked on. I haven't owned a car that never broke down on me. My personnal choice would be to own a Ford or a Jeep. But that is just my personnel choice.
To the comment about Dodges "plastic frame". I don't agree with that. I owned a 1996 Dodge 1500 and I have had 3600 pounds in the bed of it. It was only a half ton pick up and it took it.
But I now have a 2000 Ford F250 with a 7.3L diesel in it and I have got to tell you that it is a pretty good truck.
