Power — I really do love my truck, I haven't found anything I couldn't tow with it. From my 5th wheel rv to a 38,000 lb trailer loaded for brick laying. My friends have Fords and they have ea been in the shop multipule times. I replaced the injection pump at 155,000 and an after market transfer pump outside of brakes and such---no problems--except a few rattles.

2002 2500 — Rides like a tank, good fuel mileage with the diesel, the dash shatered, the cup hoder broke, cheep plastic did not last, never noticed trailer weight, VP44 pump is so pricey to replace that you may have to get a loan.

Pros

The engine and transmission are perfect.

Cons

The interior is junk.

25

Great Drivetrain. Junk Interior. — Plenty of power and towing ability. The truck falls apart around the Cummins and the rest of the driveline. Dodge needs to redesign the entire truck part and leave the drivelive alone. Its fun to drive with the 5 speed and has the power to outrun most of the lil rice rockets and piss em off. Overall its a great truck just mainly the interior is junk.

Cons

if you drive hard be prepared to spend money on fixing

This Is My Truck And I Will Drive It If You Dont Like It Oh Well — very fast truck no speed limiter. good brakes when hauling trailers. rides like a tank though. this truck has needed repairs to drivetrain but it was drivers fault everything broke lol. this truck will get 26mpg on the highway and with the cheaper cost of diesel it almost pays to drive it. this is a very fun truck to drive turns alot of heads.

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

Pros

everything about it

Cons

on the 24 valves you have to change the fuel filter every 10,000 miles or the pump will go bad.

Great — This 2002 Dodge Diesel has 293,000 miles on it without any major problems! It was used as a company truck to pull empty trailers around America. Recently i have added stickers and plates to the truck (not in the picture). But the durability of this truck is amazing. It has tons of power!!! I have a 140 hp chip in my dodge, and i believe i got this truck for a hell of a price at just $7,500! This is currently used as a school truck and is getting around 15mpg around town! The truck is very fun to drive and i recomend it to anyone looking for a great truck.

It runs pretty good for a big truck and people don't suspect it.

Cons

nothing

It's Fun To Drive — My dodge is my daily drivier and its quaility is pretty good. The performance of my dodge is probably around 450 hp. The fuel mileage is great it gets around 23 miles to the gallon. My dodge is fun to drive especially when people tailgate ya because to can make them disappear in a cloud of black smoke.

Pros

The Cummins 6 cylinder with an after market exhaust makes it sound like semi.

Cons

Lower ball joints, tie rod ends, u-joints, carrier bearing and front axle shaft u-joints need grease fittings.

The Perfect Diesel Pickup — The 8 ft. bed is good for transporting all sorts of things. The extended cab is perfect place for throwing stuff in the back, car pooling etc.. If you like driving a standard, this is the perfect start. You can start in 2nd gear and not stall it.

Dodge — Overall, very good truck. Love the power of the Cummins engine, but wish it had an automatic. Getting tired of shifting. Oh well, I'll get that when I get a crew cab. Needs more go fast goodies, but have a few already. If I can make 500 hp and get 20 mpg I'll be happy. I know it can be done but it takes too much money.
