Re: Full size trucks - which is better?
I'm a Chevy fan so I'm gonna say go Chevy, but the MPG's are less then desirable, my 03 z71 got 12-14 at best on the highway. my 05 lifted with 35's and 3.42 gearing got 12mpg on the highway and my 04 duramax CCSB 6" lift and 37's gets 17-20mpg when I run the tune, stock is like 12mpg. and my 6.0 powerstroke ford CCSB got 18mpg highway
Get a 2wd extended cab with a 5.3 auto and you will be very happy with it all around. they are great motors I only had one problem with mine, the knock sensors which was a relatively easy fix.
