The good news is that you have narrowed it down to probably the best 2 trucks out there. chevy and dodge = junk. Nissan, IMO, doesn't even make the contest.
I don't have any recent experience with Fords. We had an 03 Expedition that had the coil packs dropping out like flies. At $100 a pop, it got old, so I sold it with around 75k miles or so. Aside from that, and an alternator replacement, it was a real nice ride...wife still misses it. Also, I was scared shitless of the spark plug jumping out the head issue, that is all over the internet. That's a $5k+ repair. Not sure if ford addressed that problem or not, I hope they did.
My parents own 3 Fords. A 2000 or so mustang, 2006 expy, and a 2008 f-150. No problems with any of their vehicles that I know of.
I've had a ford ranger, 2 dodge 1500's, wife's Expedition, and now the Tundra. Its the first Toyota I've ever owned, and I think I'm pretty much a lifer now. Will one day have a Sequoia parked next to it, when the money is right.
