I'm guessing you know what it sounds like because you've spent a lot of time watching them pull away from your antiquated V8.
Heh, he's banned now.

I'll never understand people who base their entire personalities around the sound of their engine noise.

Well put. One of the reasons I ordered the 3.5L is because you get all the functionality of a full size pickup and more, without having to join that club.

Good point. They have improved (Ram and GM) but Ford is best for the Rustbelt.
Just curious how folks are finding the structural corrosion in comparison? (I do like the aluminum bodies to reduce THAT portion of rust). From the pictures I've seen, it really does seem shameful that F150's have so much surface corrosion so quickly. Yes, I agree its inconsequential in the beginning and as long as you're not going in & out of seawater, it shouldn't be TOO bad. But living near the coast, or in areas that salt their roads like Salt Bae, it'd be a concern to me 5-10 yrs down the road.

Yes, some quick coatings early (by the owner...sigh) will do a world of difference , but curious if anyone has heard of the recent GMC/Chevy/RAMs having similar issues?

New F-150's are aluminum so that issue goes away. Too many steel bodies in my area start showing rust in ~ 5 years and that's not acceptable to me.

Apologies for reviving this old thread :) GM uses this stupid wax coating on their frames. Of course it doesn't stay on the frames, so they start to rust. Not only that, when the wax starts to pull away water/dirt/salt/etc can get in behind the wax that remains, so it'll rust but you won't see it.
