    I am a dodge fan but I would not buy one. Longevity is not good and they are gas hogs. Problems with cracked heads also. JMHO, Bill

    I am a Dodge fan also and also wouldnt buy one. Transmisson are weak. Brakes constantly need attention, sometimes even if you dont pull a trailer. The fuel mileage is around 7 or 8. Plug wires dont have the best routing and they get spark skip. I would buy a Cummins diesel, twice the pulling power, 3 times better fuel economy, and less maintance. Don

    Don't do it. To add to all of the above problems, there have been a few that actually caught fire when they were pushed to the max. Buy the diesel and you will be a lot happier. Pat
