Good motor and truck. Going to the grocery store thats about it

I just bought a 2008 Ram with a 3.7 and a 6 speed. I only need it for light duty. I drove it around town for prolly 40 miles and then took it on the road. Mileage was 22 mpg. When I get my lightweight boat, i expect to be in fourth or even third gear up hills. I'm very satisfied so far.

Every one I have talk with tells me that the 3.7 and the 4.7 was junk and I believe them cause my friend bought on a it was no good it had no power
