I think the quality of the Jap brands was thought to be better because
their trucks were so lite duty no one bought them that really used them
as trucks. Now that they are trying to play in the real truck world
with the big boys lets see how well they do. I don't know how many of

race track and take an inventory of what people are using for tow
vehicles there aren't many of these little things there. Until the last
few years it has been dominated by GM. Now I'm seeing a rising
percentage of Dodge. I live in the North East, not in the upper mid
west. I tow a great deal.
Anyway, my two cents . . .
