I'm not sure if the 8 speed is paired with the hemi yet(don't think it is) but the 5/6 speed (65rfe/545rfe) is a great transmission. While I agree it has a funky gear spread, it is pretty decent and adequate. It holds up well with stock or slightly modified power levels, and gets the job done just fine(especially with 3.92's). Some say this trans is horrible and sucks, and while I agree that I'd choose the gear spread of the new 8 speed, the "old" 6 speed is NOT a bad transmission. If I were you, I'd buy the truck.
