little help with purchase?

Hi everyone

I am looking to get back into a ram and I began looking for a used ram 1500 with v8 - although I wish they would still make manual trans. - apparently they do not. I have started my search with mid to low 2000's. I have found a few with 50-70k miles that seem pretty well equipped. (4x4, slt, quad cab - but I am not sure the quad will be necessary) prices seem to range from 15k-middle 20's. I guess my question is what to watch for in those years? were there any trans. problems? Also is the coveted 5.7 that much better than the 4.7 v8 (granted one is about 350ci and the other is probably about 289ish?). I had a 4.7 man. Dakota before - but that was a while ago.

I am just getting starting gathering info and taking rides - but I had hoped I could call on some of those with much more knowledge and experience to maybe help get me started.

any thoughts or opinions - are greatly appreciated.
thanks very much
