    I am choosing between two different trucks to get and was looking for input on which would be the better decision. One is a 2013 GMC sierra SLE ext. cab 4x4 w/ 23k mi 5.3L, 6 Spd for $24k, and the other is a 2016 Ram 1500 Lone Star crew cab 4x2 w/ 22k mi 5.7l, 8 spd for $26k. I like the look of both trucks, the ram slightly more, and the interior is by far nicer on the Ram but what is drawing me to the GMC is the 4x4 with such low miles. I don't really need 4x4 and currently in Tx, but I'm in the army and don't know where I'll be so was thinking 4x4 would be a good option to have. I've done research on 4x2 in snow and other situations and found that everybody says as long as you weigh down the back and drive smart you will be ok. I will also be financing the vehicle and because the GMC is older I would most likely get a higher interest rate than the 2016. Looking for input on longevity/reliability and which would be the better choice overall as far as function to cost. Any input is helpful

    GMC or any GM Truck and Ford also makes a good truck my cousin bought my dad’s old truck I think it’s a 2000 well it has 280k miles on it and the engine has never been opened and the Trans is still good.
