Great Truck — Great truck for long trips and working or hauling anything. Gets good fuel mileage for power and the weight averages 21mpg. Very reliable never has any huge problems with it and I still love the old school mean work look.

Cummins Power — 5.9L Cummins ISB diesel Ram 2500. What more needs to be said? After some (necessary) fueling upgrades including an aftermarket lift pump and fuel injection pump, she ran like a top forever. With a high-end programmer, she made an insane amount of power for an older truck.

Dodge 5.9 Cummins — This has been a fantastic truck. 11 years and 165,000 miles later it still fires up every time just like it did when it was new. Other than an injection pump at about 130,000 miles it has only needed fule, oil and tires. For a truck of its year, even though it isnt rated but about 8,000lbs i think, it has enough power to go around and It can move more than its rating.

Awesome — Every thing is very good. I like the power and towing, and the hi-way speeds it can get up to when pulling a trailer. It's my Dad's truck but still I consider it my own, it's nice to drive also.

I Love It — I love the preformance on it with a messed up trans. it rattles cuz of my 24v cummins. the gas mileage is any where from 14- 18 miles to the gallon here on ohau which is a lot better than a gas V-8.

Long Lasting 226,000 And Still Rolling — I dislike the rust that forms when the truck gets old. Long lasting, lots of miles on the truck and still rolling. Gets good fuel mileage loaded or empty. I wish I had a bigger cab, the extended cab is small for a family.

Power, One Simple Little Mighty Word. — You cant beat that Cummins! Ours has a 5.9 litre Cummins 6C inline turbo diesel, with a mid range rear end and the SLT Laramie Package, great hi-way fuel mileage, and power power POWER!! Its a beast! With new tires 1000 kms ago it is a rip snorter going up hills with the same RPMs as going down em, but the weird thing about ours is that it is a 2wd diesel, it was used for towing a lot we suspect. It is well worth you money!! The interior is so nice enough for my 6ft frame in the extended cab and has the same great easy to use controls as our 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 V8.
