Last time I compared HD trucks (2003)... The Dodge had the beefier drivetrain/brakes.

Just climb under and look, it should be apparent which truck has the more robust drivetrain (I don't know about current year trucks). FWIW, I bought the Dodge based primarily on the fact that it fit into my garage.... and it was $10K cheaper... $36,000 versus $46,000 at the time.

Neither truck is bad, every year they teeter-totter back and forth... which tows more with the BASE engine...

which tows more with the optional engine...

which uses higher grade bolts in the bed...

it never ends and it never settles. I suggest looking for the best deal that suits your needs foremost. Right now I have a Dodge, a Ford, and a Kia.
