I had a 95 short bed Dodge with that 3.9 and a 5 speed stick. Darn little truck was fun to drive and got about 22 mpg on the highway if you stayed under 80 mph. At 80 and above it dropped to about 19 mpg. I suspect that the V6 was starting to work to hold that speed. Now days they have a newer 3.7 liter V6. Are they any good??? The 3.9s were a 318 with 2 cylinders chopped off, they were great. Spotted a 2008 Dodge on Ebay for 13,500, with free shipping, nice little truck, supposed to be made in St. Louis, MO. USA http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...STRK:MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=330244006859&rd=1 Just thinking of a cheaper truck to use when my 4X4 3/4 ton is not needed. Does anyone have a 3.7, and what do you think of it????
