Well the 15 year old GMC is in the shop so I bought my first Dodge truck. It was a salvage vehicle with a 6 month warranty. Looks new but I only gave $8,700 for it. Seems like a great truck and the Hemi has tremendous power. I bought it because it was priced right, only had 40 k miles, and had the warranty, plus the dealer I've known for years sold it to me at just a little over what he had in it. Well since then I have heard horror story's about the Doge transmissions not being all that great. Remember I don't know much about Dodge. It has the tow package/selector, cooler, etc. Does any one have any input on the Dodge as a work truck? I'm guessing the transmission is a 545 or something close to that # since it has the Hemi and tow package. Any info about this truck would be appreciated. 04 1500 Dodge ram with Hemi, tow package, etc.
