Pros

It has four wheel drive and it has good suspension

Cons

You have to push the gas pedal really far down just to get it up a hill not like in my dad's truck you barely have to touch the pedal.

I Freakin Love It — I like My truck because it has four wheel drive, my uncle bought it for me at a Shlenker auction sale in october. I also really like it because my sister doesn't have a vehicle so I can brag I have a car and you dont.

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

Big. Fast.

Cons

Parking

25

Big Trucks Are Cool — It had a V10. It was jacked up quite high standard. When you pulled up behind people all they saw was your hood. When you flicked on your blinker, the highways parted. When you picked up a vegan date, she gushed.

96 Dodge — every thing is good about this truck except for gas milage. It only gets between 9-11 mpg. It will though cut through snow at the drop of a hat. perfect vehicle for a bad winter not for year round driving.

ROAD NOISE!  Vibration, tires, transmission

55

1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel — My Dad's 1996 dodge Ram 2500 cummins Diesel is a strong, rugged truck! bought new. Not much matenince except oil and regular check ups. We've been having trouble with tires. There getting old and they've been blowing out. The window on the driver's side's motor broke so it wouldn't roll down or up so we replaced it. Truck's been thru a lot and is almost onto the 200,000 mile mark on the gauge. We are also worried about the transmission because many people we no there trans. have been giving out on them. Road noise is very loud and vibration is bad too. Good truck!
