Default That thing got a Hemi in it? Why yes, yes it does...

Just brought home the Mrs. new ride, a 2004 Dodge Durango Limited. Black, khaki (tan) interior, loaded with all the bells and whistles including the Hemi. Very nice truck, light years ahead of our old 2000 Durango (which was a coal cart with some decent bodywork on top). Drives very smooooooth...

And the guy at the dealership says that Dodge is coming out with a true crew cab pickup called the MaxCab, instead of the 3/4 seat in the current Quad Cab. Says it is supposed to be a 2005 or 2006 model. That might just put Dodge on the shopping list when it comes to my next vehicle.

Congrats on the new ride. I've been trying to talk the wife into a hemi Magnum to replace the Excursion, but so far, she ain't goin for it.
Mentioned the Durango too, but that also got an immediate veto. After driving the X for a few years, I'm having a tough time talking her into something even slightly smaller. She now has it in her head that anything smaller than a Peterbuilt is too small.
I guess there are worse problems...she could want a minivan.

We had the 360 in our old Durango - what a POS! It was very good at making ungodly amounts of intake noise and sucking huge amounts of gas, but not much else. The new Hemi has some serious honk even in this big heavy truck.

Of course, I probably won't get to drive it again for another month or three....
