Doug, hate to tell you this but so does dementia (as well as Alzheimer's and a lot of other shall we say "unpleasant conditions") LOL!

I'm guessing I'm probably older than you, by the way. Even so, I can remember the two GM products I owned; sometimes wish I could forget them.

But as we all know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and brand loyalty is a personal thing.
I will concede one thing, however. Both Ford and GM beat a Ram!

Regards,
Carl

Or for me growing up in the middle of Illinois: Cubs vs Cardinals.

Sure wish I hadn't made the original comment about Ford. I feel like the little Dutch boy who pulled his finger out of the dam!

As far as my '02 GMC 4.3 Ltr. V6 short box was concerned it didn't have enough power to haul itself up a hill... let alone pull a 5.0 Classic Escape. The Frontier has way more torque and Hp.
BTW... how's your new tug tow? Alf
