Just bought a '06 with 68,000 miles. I just got it back from the dealer and they had to replace all 4 MDS solenoids, all the lifters, one rocker and push rod.

I bought my 04 Hemi Sport a month ago with 114,000 miles - had a few hiccups so far (pinion seal and water pump 0-ring), but nothing that breaks the bank. This is my first Dodge and I just love that Hemi!!! I plan on replacing a few items (plugs, wires, all fluids, etc)just to make sure it continues to keep my right foot happy...

What the f**k? Damn man. What did you not change the oil for half a year or something? It takes a lot of abuse to have to replace the lifters, pushrods and rockers. Unless that MDS caused an issue where the internals didn't match up to the RPM.

My '03 Ram 1500 is my first Dodge truck too. My '08 Ram 3500 is my second. I'd buy another '03-'05 Ram 1500, or maybe a 2009+ Ram 1500. I would never buy another Ram 3500 Cummins though. 2011+ Powerstroke all the way when it comes to diesel.

An embarrassing 41,300+ Miles on my 2003 RAM 2500. Since this truck sits more than drives; I figure it should be having all sorts of problems (leaking seals or hoses etc.). No problems at the moment; but should be noted I change oil regularly and all fluids (Serpentine belt and radiator hoses) C/O at 35,000 Miles. Tires (stock size) at 30,000 miles.
