    Sadly this is so and the quality control is virtually non existent. It is a shame but I guess they all want to sell additional parts and new rigs at 5 year increments

    something to be said for old trucks. built to last and a whole lot easier to work on to boot.

    I have yet to see a 5.7 with a manual. All I've ever seen with a manual out of the Rams with the newer ones are the V6 and the 4.7L V8 as far as gas motors are concerned. For that matter, I don't ever recall seeing a 360 Magnum mated to a manual.

    I knew the diesels could be had in manual which is why I specified gasoline motors. I just didn't know you could get the 5.7 Hemi with a manual. Those are stout motors that's for sure.

    i guess if i decide to ever get a manual, dodge will be it.

    After being offered a hefty price for my silverado I went to test drive trucks.

    Chevy has best ride. Chevy had noise coming from the back passenger compartment nd trans was still frustrating with variable shift patterns
    Ford is roomiest - Fords options were less than similar options on Chev/GMC
    Dodge had best get up and go. Dodge had most options for price range

    And the Dodge is good for how many years/miles?

    Oh,I forgot to mention warranties.
    But in my opinion old school Gm's lasted much longer than any competitor.
    Based on those I know own recent model Dodges the Dodge seems to hold up much better than in the past. No statistical figures here though.
    I can say my Silverado has been in the shop more often than my nephews Dodge . Both were purchased around the same time and again that is only two vehicles so not really a true test.
    I have always been a GM man as has my family(DAD) but I am looking to see if other options are available since GM snubs theier nose at obvious issues on the newer GM trucks.

    For me it'll be a F150...GM going the welfare "bailout" route really sticks in my craw. It would be different if they were paying back like it was a loan. But they don't have to and since they are turning a nice profit they are off scott free. Maybe I was just raised wrong.
