P0700 is just a code to tell you there is a transmission code. P0440 is evap emissions, probably your gas cap. Are those the only codes you have? Usually the P0700 comes with another more specific code.

I've had great luck with my Hemi. Has 170k on the clock and the skinny pedal is down most of the time! Still doesent burn any oil, and smooth as can be. Still has original spark plugs in fact.

I'd say buy it. I paid $19,900 for my '06 Mega with 60,000K on it. for me to get a lift and tires like the ones on that truck I'd be looking at another $4,000.

Buy it, get teh poon.

If you havent or have already. I would say, look into a new truck or a slightly lesser used truck. I bought my truck used (and i havent had any problems with it so far) but i work at a dealership now and i will only buy new from now on just bc i dont want other peoples problems. As far as the hemi goes, its fantastic and i wish i had one if you have the money, buy a new one. it will pay off in the long run.
