Dodge's reasoning behind this is up for debate, but hot rodder's and HEMI's surely played a part in the number cruncher's minds...

Thanks. I did not know that, i will have to avoid doing that...think i have only done it once or twice but no more now

I bought my '06 with 39K and by 61K I had to put a new tranny in. I was slightly...ok, extremely angry but I cant for a minute blame Dodge. Being I bought the truck used, I dont know what the guy before me did. Did he pull stuff alllllll the time? Did he hot rod the hell out of it? Hopefully I dont have to spend $2K again anytime soon.
