Very nice truck!! While its no diesel, the Hemi is a damn fun and stout motor. It still brought a smile to my face the day I drove it in for a trade.

Now, completely anecdotal, I think the Hemi is stout. I ran my 2011 hard to 150,000km and it only had the "usual" issue of exhaust manifolds leaking (happened early under warranty). I ran Pennzoil Platinum, Motomaster synthetic and Quaker State Ultimate Durability for 10 to 12,000km change index along with a Fram Ultra changed every second change. I never ran into the cam issue. It had the Hemi tick its whole life, no big deal.

A mechanic friend of mine cursed the motor as he did many cam/lifter changes in a sparsely populated area.

Have fun and drive it hard, it likes to drive fast!
