definately.....Ford made a good decision when they switched from the leaf sprung front to the coil sprung front......coil springs are much nicer than leafs spring front suspensions...

With the excpetion of my Buddy that runs Dodges for his landscaping business (By the way he puts new Wheel bearings on his trucks every other oil change Dodges themselves are junk) I could go days without seeing a DOdge of anykind let alone a Ram. As I look out my Bedroom window I can see six Ford diesels. My neighbor has two and the Train shop across the road has a few and the farmer down the road has one. I don't care if the Dodge is mildly more powerful the powerstroke is more than I'll ever need and the current F-250/350 has style and is reliable (Dirvetrain unlike the Dodge) I won' t be buying another one as that is the ugliest truck I have EVER seen. My Dad wants to replace his next year and I told him today to hurry up and get an 06/07 before they are gone. That truck has a face only a mother could love. Who at ford thought that looks good? I am a GM guy now because they are too effed up and GM is Finally pulling there heads out of there *****

Stacks are for 18 wheelers. I, meaning my own opinion, is they are GHEY on anything else.

personally i think the 99-04 were the best lookin ones and the ones with 7.3s were the best overall.(not countin the 60s-70s models).
leafsprung, 7.3L diesel, great options, good looks, no chrome, no big grills.

Plus your talking about a Power wagon, that doesn't even have a diesel option. Dodges themselves IMO opinion are a walking Defect. My buddy gets a deal on them but he hates them. Not kidding that he has to put on new wheel bearings at 6-10K miles. This is not just his problem, my buddy works at a Dodge dealer as a mechanic and he does at least one a day.

I am actually upset at ford for going to Coils. If I have a truck that big I Am going to plow with it and Leafs are far superior to coils. At least Dodge/Ford still have a solid front axle, GM currently has SLA torsion bars on one tons! Hopefully they will go away from that in the redesign.
