Its going to be a hard way to find anyone here really to say alot of bad about Dodge considering its a Dodge forum. But i have a few friends with that year of truck mentioned and love it. I also have a couple friends with the GMC Duramax diesel. Out of all of hem only one has had tranny problems and it wasnt the Dodge. Just info.....Only.The year you want or are considering is a great year and power train from what i hear and have read. Any trucks tranny can go. Especially buying used.Just my thoughts Man. Nothing more.
