my dad had a 4.7 in his last truck it was a good engine, it drove great and i think he was getting around 12-13 mpg with it.

I have a Dakota with the 4.7. Great engine, lots of power in a Dakota. I don't think it would be that great to have in a Ram though. I think it would feel underpowered in a Ram. I would wait and get a Hemi.
