I voted "really wish I had went with the 5.7" for the same reason...power. I think the 4.7 is designed well and reliable enough but the power sucks balls. If you guys are that displeased with the second gen 4.7 you should drive a first gen!

It's ridiculous that less than $1400 gets you from the 4.7 to the 5.7 in a new truck but the difference is more like $3000-4000 on the used market. I got everything I wanted in my truck....silver, quad cab, auto, and 20" chrome wheels...but if I ever buy another 5.7 hemi will be on that list as well.
