Default New Truck deals

Before my truck rolls over 100k and loses all it's trade value (88k now) I've been thinking of taking a look at 1500 Dodge SWB quad 4x4 auto hemi. Several dealers around here are advertizing 10k off sticker for both Dodge and Chevy, but I like my current Dakota better than my prior 2 Chevy's. Anyone have one? Good / bad / indifferent? Any OSO deals at that level or better?

Looked at the Dodge but didn't like the interior layout. I bought a new Chevy 1500 crew instead. I'd post a pic but the server says it is full.

The Hemi is a high revving engine but not as much low end torque. The GM 6.0 liter is available in the 1500 Crew Cab. The 6 liter motor was tested in Powerboat recently (feb. issue?) and they were really impressed with it. They said it pulled better the Ford V10. The Hemi IS thirsty, the GM's get the best gas mileage of the Detroit gas engines.

Dodge has done a nice job with the Ram, I do not think their trannies are as good as Gm's though.
