Default Which truck should i choose?

What truck would be the better choice? (not based on preference but on reliability and value)

I am choosing whether to buy a either

- 1992 Ford F-150 flare-side, 302 v8 ext cab, short box or

- 1997 Dodge power Ram 2500 slt Laramie, ext cab, long box with the 5.9 360

As a first truck, and being a big guy (6'6 300lbs) which would suit me better?

First off, im not really doing any long driving maybe once in a while, but not often. no this will not be used to haul or tow anything. I do plan on raising it a few inches, but not much. Im hoping for some 32-36'' tires eventually.

anything i missed, feel free to ask.

AND NO, im not just looking for an answer, im looking for opinions. i like them both, but i was wondering what you guys like/hate about both of them?

If you are putting bigger tires on it, as you say, then the Dodge with it's bigger engine would be better.
