Default Automotive forum?

I'm looking for a high traffic automotive forum. I'm looking at getting a new vehicle, new to me, and am currently stuck between two models that have everything I'm looking for. he 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2007 1500hd silverado classic.

I wanted to ask on a forum of enthusiast to see which way they'd lean and if they have any inside info on quality control with the vehicles. Hard to weigh the options.

Jeep has the 305hp v8 with 12k miles. The Silverado has 32k miles and the 5.3l vortec. The Jeep's warranty would run out in 2010 while the Silverado's goes 5yrs and 100k on the powertrain which would push it to 2012. I don't put many miles on a vehicle so I'd run out of time before I hit the limits on the vehicle. Both are 4x4 which I'm not really sure how much I actually need. I've found that even when looking at 2008 2wds they seem to run more on the trucks so I'm sticking with these two. The only downside so far with the truck is that GM didn't come out with the new models until mid 2007 so that year they offered both the "classic" and new version. This is the classic. Personally I prefer this design over the new one which I find too boxy/plastic looking. Which would you dig for and if you can suggest a forum to ask on I'd appreciate it.

TD. best bet is to search both a JEEP forum, then a CHEVY Truck forum, this way you can read pretty much everything both positive and negative with each model.

Yea but the problem is all the jeep people will tell you to go with the jeep and all the chevy guys will tell you to go with the chevy. I was trying to find one that's large for vehicles in general.
