I would love to have one for a second driver. I have been looking around and it seems you can pick them up for 19k to 21k. The mile range was 20 to 50k in that price range.

Cool truck for what it is.

I would love to find a quad cab for 19k-20k with under 50k miles but haven't had much luck in my area, and I know that fuel economy is horrible lol but its just a cool truck to me and. 7500lb towing ain't all that bad but I don't have anything to tow so its all good to me

I had the 6 speed regular cab and averaged 10mpg so that's about right. Mine was a 6 speed though and I saw 18MPG on the highway which is phenomenal...No joke!

You should have no problem. I sold my reg almost 2 years ago for $23k. It's a specialty vehicle so you have to be willing to travel, but they can be had:

Should be absolutely none from what I experienced. Aside from having the V10 Viper motor and T56 which are not known for being garbage it's essentially a Ram which has a good record.

See sig, I loved mine and miss it immensely.

I had it as my DD and only put on about 5k miles a year so it was perfect for me.

I drove it through the snow in the 305 Pirelli tires and with 4 sandbags in the back I can honestly say it's one of the best performing Winter vehicles I've ever had. I am NOT sh!tting you!

Srt10forum just popped into my head. VTCOA is more robust.

Is it possible to get the 4-door with a 6-speed? I think not, but please let me know if I am wrong.

I hate 4-speed autos

6 Speed is only offered in the regular cab SRT-10's.

4 speed auto only in the extended cab SRT-10's.


Ext cab gets 4.10 gears and reg Cab gets 4.56 gears from '05 up.


Reg cab rocks! Feels more like a hot rod.

Out of the box the 6 speed ones are a lot faster than the autos, but with some tuning the autos keep up with the 6 speed trucks (properly driven 6 speeds) but the autos tend to do better at the track due to being an auto which is more consistent across models anyway.
