    Hi, I am looking to replace my 99 1500, that has been bulletproof for me the past 17yrs, with something south or west. Have been looking at the 02-05 years as an upgrade to this century, LOL. I am not familiar with these models. What year did the HEMI cylinder cancellation start? Can it be overridden/programmer? Any major concerns to be aware of? Thanks, Kyle

    I think 05 or 06 models was the first yr of the Hemi cylinder cancellation. Are you looking to sell or trade in your 99

    I figured I would sell it after I got the next one. It is a 318 reg cab short box with a plow. Might be useful to someone. I don't think you want it in Virginia, its pretty rotted in the body mounts. I patched the frame last fall. If someone has something to trade with this as partial payment I would do it.

    FWIW, Rust is the main issue on my '05 with 130K on my 5.7 1500. No cylinder cancel on it. After I cleaned out the throttle body of caked on muck, I can get 18-19/gal @ 60 mph best on flat road and not towing the boat. 70 gets me 16-17 best case.
