Does anyone know when Dodge will start using 8 speed (or more) in their full size trucks?

I think it is great to see Ford and GM to unite to use their technology in solving these difficult issues.

TJ.  I had the same question, but I'll just throw it out to the community at large.  Anybody have an idea of how mechanical complexity (reliability, mainenance cost, etc.) trade off with improved gas mileage?  Obviously Ford and GM are driven to CAFE standards first and foremost, but what will the consumer have to "pay" over the vehicle life?
