I understand why you don't have the deisel motors now. I loved not haveing the payment too, but what got me was the 1/2 ton was regular cab, and when we had our boy that made it worthless for hauling the quads, so I broke down and got the mega cab so the whole family can go! The trans problems were more noticeable in the HD trucks, and anything with a 360 or bigger, I think it was just a matter of the power going through the trans was not well thought out, but I think they figured it out now!
