SuperRam is on a distinguished road

Yes. Thanks for the thumbs up! I was just posting the reason as to why I went with the 4.7L. An answer to the threads question which is: Happy with your 4.7? and my poll answer as well.

Now, if there was a 5.7 hemi option with the manual transmision on the 1500. Would I have bought it instead of the 4.7? Heck yeah!! I would have overpayed for it!
Before I purchased my truck, I sent a letter to dodge. One of my questions that I asked them was if there would ever be any plans on putting a manual transmission on a 1500 with the 5.7 hemi.
Their response was that they always strive to please their customers. And that was it.
Thats when I made my decision. I didn't really buy the truck for fuel economy. Granted it does consume less gas than my eagle talon. LOL.
