Dodge will last until you are tired of it. Dodge does not ride as good as ford but out drives and out handles the rest plus it has brakes. I quit GM because of wipers that kept going one more time after being turned off and they had no brakes. I have a Dodge 2500 07 cummins set at 395 hp. It only takes four minutes to go to 535HP.Transmission won't stand it, it smokes some now but that's ok, anything to drive the enviros nuts. Fuel mileage is good at true 23, after market tuning company shows up to 26mpg, had me believing it for a while. Big time fun to drive. I also have an 02 f150 super crew fx-4 with near 200,000, still a very good truck that goes well in the back country. A setup 99 Grand Cherokee, v-8, 247 transfer and three sets of tires and wheels, getting near 200,000.
