Last summer when we bought my wife's Sable I got this DVD from our Ford dealer, and I finally watched it a little while ago. What an interesting DVD! In it they compare frames, brakes, steering and other engineering difference between Ford, GM, Dodge, and Limports. Man, what a difference!

If you get a chance to watch this, grab it! You'll be proud of your Ford and wonder how some of the other trucks are consider even safe to drive. My favorite scene was when the host Rick Titus holds up a Ford steering knuckle next to a puny Nissan Titan knuckle and says "You gotta be kidding me!" and tosses it behind him in disgust.

P.S. The section on brakes will give you something to think about the next time a rice-truck tailgates you.

Steve, I believe that this same infois available online, by clicking onto "thetrutchabouttrucks.com" I watched it a few months ago, pretty cool. One thing that I recall, was comparing the size of the Fords ring & pinion, to the Toyota Tundras. I work at a Toyota dealership, and although it isn`t really common, we have had a few Tundras towed in with the teeth torn off the ring gear. The gears are kinda puny for a supposedly "full size" pickup.
