Just Kiddin' Dean, I'm a tried and true GM man.....own 3 GMC's, work for a GMC dealer. Although I do like the look of the Fords front ends.....Big thing here is ...Does it tow what you need it to tow? Does it get the Nordic to the water? Thats all we ask right, cause once the boat hits the water...who cares what type of tow rig you use!! My buddy is a diehard Ford guy....so diehard that he bought a big Velocity with 2 600ci/720HP SVO motors in it.....Bad Azz!!! Runs real close to 100 MPH and that was on OE power. Rebuilds are being done this winter and it should be all over that 100 MPH mark. No offense meant...To each his own!! Have a Happy New Year!!
