F150 4x4 Vs Dodge 1500 4x4

While My 2001 F150 Was In The Local Ford Garage I Was Given A 2004 Dodge 1500 4x4 W/hemi Engine As A Loaner. This Truck Was A 4 Dr 4x4 And Was Only Like 12 Inches Off Of The Ground. I Think My 2wd F150 Had More Ground Clearance. I Was Generall Unimpressed With The Truck Except For The Power. Man Could It Fly!! I Brought That One Back In And They Gave Me A 2004 F150 4dr 4x4. This One Had More Ground Clearance But Was A Complete Dog And Sucked Up More Fuel In The Same Amount Of Travel. I Was Really Unimpressed With The New Style Of Trucks And Thought That The Interiors Were Similar To A Minivan. Too Much Plastic!!! My .02.

Any truck after 1979 has too much plastic for me, Bshort.
I wonder in 35 years, when someone is trying to restore one of these vinyl wonders with disintegrating plastic pieces littering the cab (and in the case of Avalanches, etc.) littering the ground too, how they are ever gonna do it.

I remember the '74 or so Dodges having the cheapest, plastic dash I had ever seen (until the 1980 Ford) and they (both) used to shimmy up and down on a smooth highway so bad you thought you might be wearing it in your lap at any minute.

Gimme the Beach Boys and rock and roll and steel trucks any time.
