Traded for a Dodge

Hahaha, made ya look. My truck is at the dealership AGAIN, more problems. I just so happened to call the Dodge dealer a few minutes ago, the salesman is working me up a price on a 07 3500 quad cab dually 4x4 Cummins of course, we get a good discount if we know someone who works at the local Mercedes plant, like 5% below dealer invoice, plus they have $6,000 cash back and 0% financing. Hummmmmm, can't wait to hear his offer!

You think you have problems now??? Wait till you get in that MADE IN MEXICO ram!!!! Your buying a 20 year motor in a 5 year truck!!!! And when you put a power adder in it see what happens when you try and put all that power to the ground....It will cost around 4 grand to build up your tranny before you add power and more than that when you burn it up because you didnt build it before you added power...Call TST products in Columbus IN and ask them....812-342-6741...

Yeah ummm....the trans gets that reputation because so many people abuse it. That's right, abuse...meaning it is undergoing stress that it was not designed for from the factory. It's good for 75-100 horse or so over stock before the converter's strength is compromised. Maybe those older trucks 02 down are junky, but the 3rd gen trucks are leagues further than they were. Interior styling isn't the most attractive, but the truck will do what he wants and it won't be in the shop for repeated engine issues.

Well since he has all the mods done to his ford I would imagine he is going to do the same to the dodge if he gets it....Then he will be putting that 3rd gen tranny, that is leagues further than they were, under stress that was not designed for!!! Go ahead trade for it and in 5 years when he has problems all around the engine post something so I can say I told ya so....Plus when you buy one of thoes rams your supporting a mexican...assembled in mexico....Right on the window sticker....nuff said...

Sorry to hear about all your problems CJ.....hate to see you trade it in, but let us know what both dealer say......hey also heard that Ford is coming out with some incentives finally for the 2008 and GM just started 0% for 60 months, just thought I would throw that in there since I'm at work, hahaha
