    Only
    Chevy (88-98 and 2014-2017)
    OR
    Tundra (2013)
    What some 2014 Tundra owners have said (regarding updated interior):
    " ..I wish that I had kept my previous Tundra..."

    My '96 Chevy has also been bullet proof, no major repairs needed yet. Just broke in at 204K.


    For work I drive a '16 F150 (company rig), real P.O.S. in the snow. Aluminum body makes it too light. I got that truck stuck this winter more than I've ever gotten a truck stuck in my life. Had to have Momma Bear come out with my rig to pull it out of the snow once. :rofl:

    To the new fords may look nice but junk not worth it, alum once bent its done no bending back, steel can be bent back and fixed. ALum may be lighter get better mileage for the less weight move faster takes less power but don't hold up in a massive crash just mangles to easy.

    @dirtrider73068, I beg to differ (w/ Ford) on better mileage. At 76 mph I average 15- 16 mpg in the 150 (V8). I average 16-17 in my rig; 18 if I drive like I'm carry Miss Daisy. Just another BS marketing ploy.... IMO.

    Could be a marketing gimmick, alot of companies are good at that these days.
