All I can do is share my experience with my 06 Hemi 4x4 (as it falls under the 'any advice' definition). I purchased mine new in Jan 07... since then the first problem I experienced was the Starter in 2013 at about 85k miles, then water pump and hoses in August of 2018 at about 128k miles and then Differential Bushings and new Rear Pinion seal last month at 129k miles. Oh, and the rear passenger side end link went bad 2 years ago... a 30$ 15 minute DIY fix. Of course I've changed pads, rotors, batteries, spark plugs,shocks and tires... that's just general maintenance.
The 5.7 hemi has virtually been flawless so far. The Transmission still shifts like new.
I'm hoping to keep this SUV well past 200k miles.
If you can pick up one with ~ 60k miles, I'd confidently go for it!!!
Hope this helps your decision making.
