How many miles on your 4.7L? Have you had any problems with the engine? As your mileage increases, what problems, if any, have you come into contact with? And at what mileage did that problem occur? Just wondering what us newer 4.7L owners should look out for.

Ive got just under 31,000 on mine and still goin strong, and getting stronger as mods increase. :D

I'm not going to be much help cuz mines almost identical to yours. But I've got 16,000 on mine with no trouble. My driver side window sticks when it gets cold but I'm to lazy to take it to the dealer to fix it.

I have 29,000 miles on my 2000 Dak....

No problems since new in 2000. It's held up to over 350 1/4 mile passes. Probably 100 passes since putting the blower on it. It's definitely a tough one.

I also have a 2002 Durango with 32,000 miles. Never a problem with it either. It is bone Stock, right down to the paper air filter.

I had my truck in the dealership one time, for a clock-spring in the airbag sensor. I told them not to touch my computer....That when the buzz of the death flash was going on....

It's an Atlantic Blue SXT. 3:55 L/S

Unless you're just feeling extremely generous, I don't need the 20's. Would like to have them, but I don't think the wallet would at the moment.

Just list them on the boards. They will fit all of the GenIII Dakotas as well as the GenII's.

Whats up guys?

I am new here and am glad to find another great site for dodge trucks. My 2000 cc 4.7 Has 80,000 miles on it and the only problem I have had with it is the rotors warped a couple of times. I replaced them with Powerslots and has been fine since. I have done alot with my truck and it has never let me down. Anyway, If anyone needs help with anything, I will do my best!
c-ya, Jeff

53,786 miles had it since 50,000 not one problem, that I didn't cause myself and didn't fix immediately, the engine is running really strong. I won't ever take my vehicles to the dealership, I don't trust anyone else to work on my vehicles, I do all my own work.

130,000 miles ...

I had a 2000 Durango and traded it in with 130,000 on the clock. The over drive unit was going bad on the tranny so they told me I had to get a new one. $5,000.00 is what they were going to charge me. I saw the sales manager and I traded it in for a 2003 Durango SLT. More options than my old one and this one looks to be just as tough as the last one. These are GREAT trucks. :toast:

For a new trans?
WOW I can make a lot more money.

It should not be that much. I know thats what they told you, but No.
Anyway I most likly would have also traded up to a new one too.
If the price was right.

LOTS of Luck with your new Ride.
Peace
