Pros

Just an overall awesome truck to drive, no worries of getting stuck anywhere,  the 4wd is 100% reliable.  The suspension could be better,  it is a bit stiff but it is a truck so no complaining. Its a gaseater but the 5.7hemi sounds and performs amazing.

Cons

Rocky suspension, uses tons of gas

Awesome Truck, I Want Another — Suspension problems, havnt yet experience the so called death wobble, i don't plan on it. I keep up with the repairs it needs like the tie rods, linkage, steering, ball joints, u joints etc, that's probably why i havnt had to many problems.

The Almost Perfect Truck — this truck is great because its the heavy duty version with the Cummings turbo diesel. the interior is a little on the cheaper side but its roomy. this truck hauls a 25 ft cape horn boat and you really don't notice a lot of difference in its response except when braking or accelerating. The major down side to this truck is trying to park it. if the parking happens to be tight or close quarters you might want to just go park across the street unless you have experience with bigger trucks.

Pros

Excellent power with Cummins diesel. Good brakes. Very reliable. Plenty of room for passengers in the quad cab. Tight steering makes the truck a breeze to handle.

Cons

Diesel can be problematic in cold climates like New England - gelling, etc. Body tends to rust out before any powertrain problems occur (especially in snowy climates). HVAC is overly complicated, so repairing it is frustrating and costly when it fails.

Best Truck I've Ever Owned. — This is a fantastic truck. It has had nearly zero repairs over the many years I have owned it. It has over 250k miles and is still kicking. The Cummins diesel engine is extremely powerful yet provides excellent fuel economy considering the weight of the truck. It comfortably fits three children in the back seats, one of which is in an infant car seat. I will definitely buy another Ram like this when the time comes.

Dodge — Best Truck I have ever owned. I have had few issues, all covered under warranty. I added a Bully Dog Down Loader and will take just about any car or truck on the road. 0-60 in about 5.5 seconds for an 8,000 lb truck. 525 horse power and 800 lbs of torque

04' Dodge 2500 Ram — I got this truck used in 2005 with 84,000 miles on it. Shortly after bought found that the a/c was not working correctly. Then within the next two years the body control module went out, which effected the low beam lights and radio function. Now at only 134,000 miles the front universal joint needs fixed replaced and the hub assembly is seized on. Have to cut off the hub assembly which is a $600 part which is good to replace a $65.00 part.

If You Want A Real Truck This Is What You Want. — I love this truck! Sucking gas hulling ass! The solid front axle is hell on the front end. Very ruff ride. Put pipes on it and it sounds awsome. Very comforable interior. Very roomy, This is a real truck. Hemi power!
