Over the past 3 years I have owned these 3 trucks. I have used each truck to haul the same camper to the Little Sahara Oklahoma sand dunes, to haul my dirt bike to the same riding areas, and as a bad weather daily driver. The Dodge was a total POS. Constant electrical problems. No way to take the crappy dodge electronic trans out of OD - Dodge sucks at anything electrical, and with transmissions - what could possibly go wrong? Haha. Jackasses. Those trucks have a cult following. Most cults end up being bad... I had about $10,000 into this POS. The Dodge got 8-11 mpg pulling the camper / 15-18 mpg with no trailer. The F150 had the 5l v8 and 6 speed auto trans. The trailer would make the stability control do weird stuff if you used the trailer brakes to help you straighten out on slippery roads. That was my only real complaint, other than it being a 1/2 ton and feeling kinda light as far as tires and suspension while pulling the camper. I paid $28,000 for this new in 2013. F150 Got 7-8 mpg pulling the camper / 16-17 mpg with no trailer. The k2500 has the 5.7l and 4l80 trans. The brakes aren't the best, and the extended cab doors don't open. Otherwise it is a really good truck. I paid $3100 for this. K2500 gets 7-8 mpg pulling the camper / 15 with no trailer. Spend your hard earned $$$ wisely!
