If getting used, might as well get a 2010 so you can actually get a programmer and have extra fun with the hemi, otherwise go new....,my 2 cents.... lol

If you are getting a hemi, you can get a new truck for barely more then a used one if you can swing the right promos and incentives. I realized I could have gone new for 40 more a month and I don't even have the hemi

Just put a hemi in the jeep. Turnkey can be done for about 10k, less if you do it yourself.

I don't know how long you want to wait but if you can hold out until 13's start hitting lots or at least until year end clearances you will get killer deals on new remaining 12's I'm sure.

Even though the headlights make the truck look like it has down syndrome. And the shifter is hideous. The suspension is pretty badass, and the 8 spd tranny is worth it.

an 8 speed HEMI RAM won't be on the dealers lots until at least January
Personally, if you want to soup a Ram up, get a 2010 or older
If you want a 2012, wait 2 weeks, LABOR DAY weekend in the States

watch the rear end ratio, you won't like a 3:21 ratio
the 3:51 is more for highway & light towing, like a mid sized boat
if you are in snow or mud country, get a 3:92 & you can tow even more
then there is the 4:11 ratio for heavy pulling & quick take off

You won't want the RES 130 radio either
it is a piece of junk that they stick in the vehicle to be able to say it has a radio
