Get the Dodge, nothing beats that diesel engine. Anything else Dodge though is crap IMO.

What do you tow? Unless you tow a ton, a dually just doesn't make sense.

One of my coworkers traded in his ecobost F150 for a Raptor a few months back.

I'm intrigued by the Ecoboost, but I'm just not sure I'd trust it this early in it's evolution. It's a new thing for Ford and I'm just not sure how that will translate in terms of long-term reliability.

in terms of the dually itd be a pull truck ya know for truck pulls also to haul my trailer out to the property in west virgina raptor would be a sweet offroader and the ecoboast would put some money back in my pockets but daul turbos will be expensive when they go out

Sounds to me like you just have to figure out what you want. You're all over the place. You're looking at three very different vehicles. Figure out what's most important to you, then you've made your decision. Gas mileage, fun, or pulling?

If I were buying my preference would be an inline 6 diesel with a 5 speed manual...but I'm not in a hurry to go anyplace and it would tow most anything.
