Liquid asset,why not buy an 02 chevy or gmc? Not to start a whos better war but ford has 50 less hp, 15lb ft less torque, considerably louder, no allison tranny, single piston calipers vs dual piston calipers(gm), limited slip rear differential vs locking rear differential(gm), a tarnny that you have to take out of OD to tow vs one you dont(gm),no dynamic brake proportional valve(gm has), integrated headrest vs adjustable(gm),etc., etc. etc. Sorry just my .02 worth.
And after 03 ford is scheduled to replace the powerstroke which could result in lower trade in values.
