I am going to be buying a truck soon.

I was first set on an 01 or 02 6 speed, as the the autos are known to have problems once you get up there in power.

So my question is how are the autos in the 03-05 years?

This my reply from a different post.
I like the auto's in both my Dodge's. I pull a 23k# trailer doing my tractor work and mostly pull in town . I commute to my regular job (46 mile round trip) also and am glad not to be shifting constantly in traffic. My 03 is completely stock and has never seen a shop except for recalls. My 06's torque converter is not happy at the moment but it has been abused by programmers. If you only pull 10% of the time and run empty the rest of the time than I think you would like the auto unless you just like to row through the gears. It really is a matter of personal preferance. I've had 6 manual tranny trucks and have liked them all except in traffic or when you have a busted ankle or shoulder
