My 5.7 06 Hemi died due to sludge at 110K. I bit the bullet and put in a new aftermarket engine. Eagle or something. That engine blew due to the valve seat at 10K. Luckily they replaced the engine under warranty.

That sucks... I have the same year/engine and almost as many miles on mine. My brother-in-law is going through getting a new engine for his 10 Ram 1500 hemi from a shop off 49th St, however, his truck died around 240k miles, so I can't say he really didn't get his $$ worth. Hope mine hangs in there.

2'' RC Lift, Bull Bar, Hella OffRoad Lighting, Black Grill, Blackened-Out Limited Chrome Accents, K&N CAI, Flowmaster Exhaust, 265 70 R17, SkyJacker Rear Shocks, LED Interior Lighting, BullyDog GT Gas Tuner, WeatherTech Floor Liners, Darkened LED Headlight Assemblies, Smoked Spyder Fog Light Assemblies, more to come...
