2013, 3500 series truck?? Which to choose?

A buddy of mine is looking to buy a 3500 series truck this week. He owns a steel erection company and currently is in a 6.0 powerstroke that is on its way out. EGR and Headgasket issues(Go figure)...

We looked at the Dodge Saturday, seemed a little sluggish and had cheap tires on it. Then they have crappy transmissions. But was a very nice looking truck. Today we're going to look at the Chevy's. Fords are out because he has a bad taste in his mouth with the 6.0 he has. Plus I hear the brakes are crap in the new Fords.

Are they're any issues with these new trucks? I know chevys have DEF issues and thin paint. Not familiar with the new dodge at all. Seems nice but sluggish.
Opinions? Why did you guys end up with chevys over the other brands?

For what its worth he doesnt plan on modding the truck in anyway to void the warrenty, this will be his work truck and dd.
