im currently shopping for a 4x4 dodge 1500 quad cab in the years 2002-2005. My budget is mainly limiting me to 2002-2004.I have found a couple 1500s with 5.9L engines (not the hemi), these are mostly the 2002 models. What are the differences between the 2002 5.9L and the Hemi? it is also kind of hard to find a used dodge 1500 under 19,000 with a hemi. Is there anything else i should know about these trucks before i buy one? anything to avoid? anything to look for?
Thank you all ahead of time-
looks like im goin to have to change my username!

The '02's have the 5.9, '03+ got the Hemi with the 45rfe or 545rfe tranny. The 5.9 has the 46re (same as in the 2nd gen. Rams). Either way there nice trucks.

I went a month ago to look at a new diesel, nicely equiped. Sticker was $43,750 and I had them talked down to $32,495. It would have been $20-$40 more a month then what I am paying now, but the wife said I don't need a new truck yet. She was pissed that I was looking at a new one already, since I have only had mine for 2 years. Ever since the employee discounts the dealers are having trouble getting close to sticker for a new truck.
