'00 dodge auto....great truck..same mpg as the excursion....could not keep a torque converter in it Gotta put a billet one in or it is not worth it.

'03 dodge 6sp....would still be in my drive if it was 4x4

'97 f350 2wd...17mpg...13 towing....sold it w/500k on it and it ran like a top
I really dont like dodges but love the motor, with some work the autos can be made to work well. I have owned 2 now and this one has over 250,xxx on it and is still going.
