Default 4.7 vs hemi, Outdoorsman vs Big Horn

Hey gang been a long time since I last posted. I am going to trade in my 2010 truck for a 2011. looking at either the Big Horn crew 26z package or the Outdoorsman 24t package. Either one will be crew 4 wheel drive. The 24t package does not come with a Hemi. I currently have a Hemi. My question is has any one gone from a Hemi too a 4.7 and were you happy or disappointed with that switch. Also any one who has the Outdoorsman how do you like it?

Thanks,
Clint

Hemi = more power AND better gas mileage. I have a 2011 with 4.7, my dad has 2010 with Hemi. I'd trade mine for his in a heartbeat, and not just because his has a few more toys.

I have an outdoorsman with a hemi and I LOVE IT!!! It has all the bells and whistles I wanted when I first started looking at Rams and then some! I actually started to tell myself I would have to settle on a truck with a few features I wanted left out until I found my outdoorsman.

That's not bad just make sure your going to buy it after the lease. It's a game however if your over on miles and the truck is showing it's age at lease turn in you'll get man handled with fees and fines. Granted you'll be on the 8-10 year finance plain but more truck right now always sounds good to me... Plus if the shit ever does hit the fan I'm not going to be scrambling for my check book to make a payment, at least not right away!

i have an Outdoorsman and i love it. Ive had a 5.2, 4.7 and the Hemi and the hemi beats all. not quite up there with a 440 (man was i taught a lesson) but overall the truck is great pulls anything i need it to the only two issues i have are dealer related the truck itself is awesome and make sure you op for the 32 gal tank.
