I convinced my wife to give her SUV to her mother (Chevy) with less than 97k. I grabbed her a 2005 Hemi 5.7 (originally posted 128k but in fact 123,500). She has a home to sell in NC, so there's furniture to come up to the KY farm. I felt the 4wd truck provided many more options than a 2wd SUV.

I'm encouraged to see you guys fair well with these 03's. I felt comfortable with the 05. I'll stick with the diesel and help her haul antiques up the road. I'd probably just rack up speeding tickets if I drove the Hemi on the interstate.

I'm scheduled to get Firestone Destination AT's 285/70/17 on Tuesday and feel for her travels through the mountains in winter, this is the tire for her safety. I've got the old 5.9 magnum for off roading (scratches my itch).
