Pros

Good power, good driveline. great 4x4

Cons

like my dakota i feel 1st and 2nd gear in the autos could be geared better, instead of a 2.45 for 1st, between 3.00 and 3.20 would have been great and instead of 1.45 for second between 1.80 and 2.00 would have helped acceleration a lot from a stop with a load.

It Does What I Need And Still Looks Good. I Would Buy Another Before I Bought Anything New/ — Great all around truck, does the job and its fun to drive. i put a thrush glasspack muffler on it and it sounds nice, mellow when accelerating like normal but aggressive when you mash on the gas. Hauled a 12k load good.

Good Truck With Power Steering Issues — My Dodge 2500 is the gas 2 WD long bed. It does the job for me hauling horse trailers and hay. Overall it's a good truck, but it has had a lot of issues with the Power Steering. It runs good over all though. The interior has not held up that great. The dashboard is caving in. The back window leaks too in a hard rainstorm and has done that since I got the truck, in 2004. It is a gas hog.

Good Truck — cheap price, go long lasting, & bad MPG. It is paid for. It is ugly. it runs. got a lot of miles & runs good. It will haul just about any thing you want to pull or haul. Goes for ever. END

Best truck I ever had for Off road.

Cons

It rides like a truck cause it is a 3/4 ton truck. Milage you can't have both this type of performance & pruis like milage.

I Like Ford But My Bronco Wasn't Close To What This Can Do. — Best all around off road vehicle it's long wheel base alone if you take it easy off road it's hard to get into a situation you can't back out of. The Dana posi traction diffs. coupled with 8 lug wheels says Heavy Duty!

Love It — handels good it will pull anything ive owened alot of trucks the 1999 cummins is by far the best built truck and motor ever made.22 miles to the gallon on the highway with a 5 speed and 35 inch tires is awsome.

Pros

bought this baby 2 weeks before i got my license shes been my pride and joy, and i dont think icould ever sell it!

Cons

I'm not to happy since its a 2wd cause the first 2 winters with it were not that fun, but now i got a 4wd for the winters so old red just sits in the garage now over the cold icey months.

25

She Won't Be For Sale Anytime Soon — truck is only a2wd so nice at light compared to mst diesels. So even though it doesn't have a whole lot of power it still beats many others inlight to light races. Gets close 36mpg when driving nice abd goes a mile every 30sec when you got your foot down. truck has never left me on the side of the road even though i have put it through hell and back. Very loud, clean, fast, and dependable truck.

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

Great Buy — awesome truck... the cummins is unbeatable. it pulls awesome. torque is outstanding. even decently quick off the line with just a 4" turbo back exhaust and a drop in k&n filter. i liked my half ton but this is amazing.

It's Awesome — Truck is pretty quick and has no problem stopping just as fast. Alittle bit of rust and a couple dents but still good. Despite it gets around 8 mpg its always fun driving anywhere at anytime. I love this truck

you can feel the raw power of the cummings turbo when you drive it!

Cons

my horn sounds like it belongs in a chevette

This Truck Rocks!! — performance: is awesome high torque off the line but you have to be quick on the shifts( i have a 6spd manual transmission)otherwise you lose! in the long run the diesel is the way to go especially when i get 500kms per half a tank of feul. All in all I love my truck and the standard eventhough you cant get it in a truck(newer)anymore was definetly the way to go. In closing I LOVE MY TRUCK!!
