Pros

good mileage

Cons

performance

Put-put Truck — Poor acceleration with a 4 cylinder. Needed repairs because it was notorious for fouling plugs therefore it skipped. Interior had a couple of tears in the seat. Outside was okay except for the company sticker outline on bothe doors. This was not fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Better Than Great. — i loved the power of the 87 dodge ram with the 5 speed and 318 but hated the rust probems on the box and fenders but it was very fun to drive and a great truck for my needs as a teenager.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

The Future Mudder! — this is awsome, It has some rust holes, but the power is enormous! To the point where i have run over a tree in 2 wheel and it didn't even slow down so very fun. there is only one problem with it and that is the gas milage which hovers at 20.

Cons

gas mileage, carbureted.

Tough Truck — Rather sluggish in performance, but these trucks were never meant for that. It's a great work horse, and preforms very well offroad, where it's really at home.

Fun Vehicle To Drive — It's a fun truck to drive, it's a 5-speed manual 4 wheel drive no rust truck from Oregon! It's 20 years old and still has the original "How to jack up this vehicle" decal intact perfectly! Living in the Salt Belt {Wisconsin} for me I never even saw one! So to think people in other parts of the country can actually keep a car as long as they want. To me is a thrill! Factory Paint and Stripe Graphics are perfect. The hood is stone chipped bad ,but since its original I will just keep wax-on-wax-off so to say and enjoy it. May God Bless You! Rick in the "Salt Belt of Wisconsin"
