    Even though i was being sarcastic, the honduh on average has a higher payload and towing capacity than a gladiator.

    Well, is that what the trunk is for?
    How do you go offroad with the honda?
    Anything more than a fire road and you are stuck. With gladiator, one has the best offroad truck on the market today.

    You are correct neither will have the pay or tow capacity of a full size.

    that's when you see all the blown motors LOL. And no, sadly that's not a joke. To any one readying this DONT buy an older ecoboost unless you have a GOOD warranty. They aren't cheap. Buy a 15+ if you can. Keep it stock and don't tune the motor.

    3v 5.4, reliable? GTFO

    And when do the ecoboosts die? My 11 had 100k when I sold it. All my miles. Almost no issues.

    On the older models with cylinder deactivation you have to remove the heads to fix it. A friend of ours at a local trans shop offers a kit to completely delete it; which is what I would do if I got a newer Silverado/ Sierra. If the newer engines are any different I don’t know. I only see vehicles when they’re out of warranty from the manufacturer.


    Pick your poison.

    I should have said 2V 5.4 ... 99 00 01 02 . And the 11-12 ecoboost are terrible. Many blown motors with relatively low miles. You avoided a $10k blown motor for sure. Late 14 is when they updated the motor issues. I had the 15, and loved it. However plugs NEED to be changed every 10-20k miles. And they NEED catch cans for the intake system.
