The ZF 8 speed has been a great trans. The ford and the Ram are both really nice. They both spank anything else out there in there category. I had a Ram. Traded it for an F150. Traded that for a Ram. It was a tough choice between the f150 and the new Ram. The 5.0 is better than the Hemi but the rest of the truck is better than the F150. I would say oh couldn’t go wrong with either of them.
