My local dealership was pushing a 2007 5.7L V8 Big Horn with 57K miles for $19K, but I can't justify spending that much. I'd prefer to stay in the $10-14K range.
I found a couple of options going a bit older with some additional mileage:
The HemiSport is growing on me and I like the black on black, but the 2002 has the bigger 5.9L V8 and a few less miles. I've heard the 5.7L V8 is a great engine, I would assume similar with the 5.9L? Anything in particular with this gen that I should look out for when going over the vehicle and test driving? Other buying advice/comments?
I'm looking forward to owning my first truck and joining the community here. Thanks!

5.7 Hemi swapped, Lowered and some shiny new paint!!
14.63 @ 93.20mph

She does like to suck up some gas. Still on my first tank, but it's looking right around 12mpg. It's a good thing this is a secondary vehicle for me or I'd be going broke!
