I'm in the market for a new truck. Most likely a 1/2 ton Crew cab 4X4. I have a thing about big car payments, so I usually draw the line around 20K and put a chunk down.
A friend has a nice Dodge 1500 with a 4.7. Sounded like a small motor, but the specs actually aren't bad. Sometimes the specs stated on paper, and reality, are very different. So I'm looking for some feedback.
It would be my daily driver. Weekends I haul dirtbikes, launch the boat, maybe pull a heavy load a couple times a year. I would love a diesel, but they're I can't justify the cost, or afford to fix it if it breaks.
One thing I HATE is being underpowered. Has anyone bought a 4.7 and regreted it? I would be interested in hearing from people that don't live in the flat lands! :-)
