well id do that but i still have a loan on this truck so idk, i looked at jasper and the warranty and all is the same as the dealership and 2 grand cheaper atleast but there no authorized jasper enigne installer here, i would think the dealership would be but there website doesnt say so. I was just gonna do the 4.7 and upgrade some things, least my motor would have a warranty for the nxt 3 years

Why not the 360 (5.9) route? I dunno if the transmission will bolt up, but I know the 360 was in the 2002 and could be had for a lot cheaper than that. Even a Magnum 380 (380hp) is half the cost of that.

There should be a shop in your area that can install and service the motor under warranty???? The Dealership will always cost more unless you take a quote from another shop to them and have them match or beat the price.
