You can fix it with stronger axle clamps, better balanced tires or a better driveshaft most the time. Dealerships are hopeless at fixing issues.

Too bad there's no real 4x4 SUV's left. You basically got to chose between a tiny and anemic 4runner or a big Yukon or Suburban. Everything else is a transverse engine'd minivan. If you don't need the third row of seating a truck with a cap is basically a SUV and you can take the cap off and fit tall shit like dirtbikes and whatnot.

Mmmm. That'd be nice. At least some RAV4s have a button to lock the axles even though it's still a slushbox.

Similarly you can get a manual Forester that at least has a VC in the center, or a tragic Forester that will lock if you put it in 2.

@RavySnake

Depends what you want. Those places will probably have good prices, but their sales people are like Autozone employees.

I've gone to the same private tire place for the past 7 years and I've been very happy with their service. Their prices are *maybe* a little more, but they balance everything perfectly, inflate properly, nothing is scratched or dented/scuffed, and they're willing to take the time to find something you like and can afford.

TL;DR Sometimes private shops are the best. Depends on your budget and what you're looking for. If you know what size and tire you want, you can always check Tirerack.com and then just get a shop to mount/balance the stuff for you.

Prepare for my tl;dr response.
FCA Products are garbage, so avoid at all cost.
You have the option to buy a Ford truck with a 5L V8, but if something messes up, it's going to be a bitch to fix because of how Ford structures their shit.
Chevys/GM trucks do shake, no cure to fix that issue yet. Buy at your own risk.
The Tundra is probably the most reliable half ton in the market, sucks gas like a bitch with it's ancient engine though, but so does any other truck in the market.

Conclusion: Buy a Tundra if you want reliability or an old Chevrolet/GMC.

If you want a fun truck, buy a Chevy or Ford I guess...

If you want to buy a money pit truck, get a RAM or a Ford with a ecoshit engine.

I love it! Couldn't be happier with it, it's got power absolutely everywhere and is super comfortable. Don't listen to people who shit on the interior, it's definitely not chevy-tier. Soft touch materials everywhere, nicely trimmed alcantara and leather seats with SS embroidery, and ventilated seats which is sweet. The only thing about the interior I don't like is all the chrome but that's easily paintable or replaced with a factory blackout kit.
