Ford vs. Chevy

Which is the best truck to transport my mountain bike? Also should I go to my LCD or buy it on the internet?

You don't need a real truck to transport something as light as a bike so a Chevy will do

For the size and price, I love Ford Rangers. Unless you need something big its perfect. Get one thats a few years old and there is a huge price drop. The truck hasent gotten a huge update in a looooong time, but its a truck, not a BMW, it has everything you need!

I can fit 2 bikes in the extended cab of my Chevy. Who knows how many I can fit in the bed.

- the latest ford truck feature? a heated tailgate for when you're pushing it home during winter.

- First thing to get after getting a Ford? A dog, so you have someone to walk home with.

- FORD, Found On Road Dead.

Keep a road bike in the back if you get a Ford, you'll need it.

Much of a Ford fan as I am I have to say that when it comes to trucks, 'Ford vs. Chevy' is sort of irrelevant. Dodge.

From past history, I take the Dodge nameplate as advice.
