I researched, tested, and worked the deal on all of the full size 1500 series trucks. My need for 4 wheel drive was not there, and had to look hard and long for a 2 WD. Finally found one with the right equipment, plus a Hemi. My initial requirement pointed to the 4.7 liter, but when the 5.7 upgrade was free, the decision was to upgrade. All of the dealers in my search (and there were more that 10) were very professional, but Dodge of Blaine had the edge on professionalism. When I arrived to take a test drive, I was greeted enthusiastically, and that set the pace throughout the entire transaction. My words of wisdom are to do a lot of homework, study for the big test, and execute wisely.
2 wheel drive with the 5.7 Hemi is overkill (but oh so much fun). My father always said "don't look a gift horse in the mouth", and a free Hemi is the best gift of 2010!
So far there are 1,255 trouble free miles on my Ram 1500. My only suggestion is to keep those miles a coming!
