Nice truck but beware of that tranny. You MUST make some changes to the manual or pulling that trailer you will have problems. The 68re auto is a much more durable tranny. I have them both and I love driving the manual, unfortunately they don't hold up very well. You have to install quick coolers and a tranny temp Guage. And don't boost the power. I make my living with these trucks and the manual has left me stranded MANY times. As far as the truck itself goes, she's a beauty and will last forever.
My truck's :
07 Ram 3500 , 6.7, auto, 1.8 million miles.
04 Ram 3500, 5.9, manual, 1.2 million miles.
