I can't help with your question, but I will say, it sure is nice to upgrade your truck.

I did it about 13 months ago and am very happy.

My dad has a 2005 Dodge 1500 and has had 4 transmissions put in it. He has the lifetime warranty and had to shell out $$$ for the deductible each time. I still don't know why he still has it. He curses that truck all the time. It does have a smooth ride however.

I have been looking for a few months now just seeing what is out there. It seems trucks sure have gotten over engineered almost to the point of I would just rather find an old one a rebuild it to my preferences. Trucks are supposed to be trucks.... if you are looking for a plush ride with all the electronic bells and whistles, buy a car.

I'm pretty positive I was born about 20 years too late.

Outside of the Hemi issues - great trucks! Have a few employees here who bought 04-7 new - a couple have nearly 200,000 with no problems. They've had great service with theirs

Found an 08 over the weekend, going to check into it and talk to the bank in the next day or so...

The ones with a Hemi I know had trouble with the rear ends, maybe to much rawhiding or to much motor for them?
