    If I had the resources, I'd look at the 2500 HD Diesel. The only reason I say that is because the engine is probably going to hold up better in the long run than the others will and you'll probably get decent mileage, which would help to offset the extra cost of diesel. Of course, if you're living in the northeast then you may have to do the additional few maintenance measures when the colder winter weather rolls around.

    You also can't really go wrong with the F-150. They've been making the F series trucks for decades, so Ford just be doing something right.

    None of your picks are bad choices. I, personally, would have to be convinced to buy the Dodge. I don't know much about that particular model, but I've never owned a Chrysler product made after 1979 that didn't have some serious issues.

    Indecision may or may not be my problem.

    Well, that is a wide variety of choices...lol! River has the right idea. The diesel will last a long time, and you can tweak it to make massive HP/Torque and MPG. If you want a truck, then look no further. My buddy has a '10 duramax and programmed it. Now he gets about 18-20mpg on highway. He has a MPG setting, and if he uses it, he can get up to 22mpg. That is freaking awesome for a diesel, or truck in general! Not to mention they hold their resale better than any of your other choices.

    Yea Ive been thinking about the charger as well, cant go wrong with it, I would get a later model tho, the current back end of the charger looks freakin sick but I would rather have the standard two tail lights rather then the bar on the curreny models, SRT8 for the charger, or even the RT they look nice. as long as it doesnt have a stupid ass spoiler.

    I'm a fan of the F-150. You can get them as plain or as hyped out as you want, and it's a great truck.

    Hell.....I will NEVER see a newer vehicle in my lifetime. The newest vehicle I have ever owned is my 98 Explorer which has needed a tranny for 4 months now.

    Important word there being lease. Most likely with pretty hefty penalties.

    I know man, I went the ford dealer the day before tried to get that Lariat but theree telling me i need 6k down at signing and $650 a month for 72 months, but here this the lariat is used with 25,000 miles no way am i going to be paying $60,000 for a truck thats worth $29,000, Id rather pay for a new truck lease first for the first 2 years then buy it back with a lower finance plan. If I end up getting the Dodge Longhorn thats what id be doing.
