I have already learned my lesson between want and need, lol. I have owned 2 different Magnum V-10's and a 485HP/850ft/lb Cummins Dually and I have to say, this little 4.7 is more than enough for my current useage and is alot easier on the wallet. I pass thru a ton of little towns on my 150 mile daily commute with small town cops that will bust you for being 5mph over the limit so I have learned to just sit back and get there when I get there. My mileage likes this driving style too.
If I ever move back up North then I will likely pick up another Cummins.
