Pros

Very reliable truck, fast and powerful and with a sunroof!

Cons

gas mileage isn't anything to get excited about.

Reliable, Powerful, And Gets The Job Done. — Had this truck for a few years now and it had never left me on the side of the road. Replaced the alternator due to a bad bearing and the drive belt while I had it off. Other than that this truck has been extremely reliable, starts every time, and fun to drive.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

All around great truck

Cons

Great Truck — This has been a great truck. I bought it in 2006 with 9k miles. Powerful, roomy interior, smooth ride, zero maintenance issues. I would like better gas mileage, but really wouldn't expect it in a full size truck - especially one equipped with a Hemi V8. I would definitely recommend this truck.

Jeff's Take On The 05 Ram 1500 Baby!!! — Best pickup in its class, its sturdy, and powerful. Very roomy and fun to drive. Great acceleration and breaking, as well ad handling. Havent had to put any money into other than basic maintenance. It is a blast to go cruising in, and great for hauling those heavy loads. I would Definitely recommend buying this truck to anyone who is in the market for a newer truck.

Pros

Durable, reliable, overall great truck to own

Cons

4wd system is not as capable as newer models, disliked lack of ABS, HEMI has improved since then

Great Truck — Easy to work on, reliable, tough body, and fun to drive. However, the HEMI seems underpowered compared to today's models. ABS was apparently optional for the truck also. As a result this handled poorly on icy roads so I traded it in.

Pros

Great looking truck! Makes you feel like a man! Head Turner!

Cons

Poor gas mileage, tough to get car seats in and out back seat due to the height

Awesome Truck!! Definitely Turns Heads And Gets Attention Of Others! — This is my baby but due to the addition of a second child and more car seats, I need to get a better family quality vehicle like a luxury sedan or something! This is a very fun truck to drive.

Pros

This is the best truck next to a brand new Cummins!

Cons

Fuel economy is about 12.8, improved to 18mpg or so 5 model years newer.

The Beast Hidden Below The Suburbia's Daddy Commuter. — This dodge has a governed feel when it comes to race-accelerating, with about a 10 second 0-60. Off-road, with my awesome tires, is great. Longer wheel base compared to other climbers though. Build quality is excellent, requiring vurtually no repairs, and very little maintenance. Fun to drive for sure, second only to if I owned the manual transmission version of this truck....

Comfort, durability...everything about dodge trucks in general

well, gas prices hurt a little with a V-8

If You Cant Dodge It, Ram It. — 4 Low on these trucks will get you out of anything, especially if you have the 5.7 Hemi or large engine. They are roomy, durable, and stylish. I've been in an accident at 80 miles an hour with this truck and the frame didnt even bend. I walked away without a scratch. These are TOUGH

2005 Dodge Quad Cab — 5.7L Hemi powered Quad cab! Lots of power. Like a muscle car in a truck. Mine has an Alpine head unit with iPod interface, Leer top, BedRug bed liner, Infinity subwoofer, SRT-10 replica wheels with fat Yokohamas.

Dodge Ram Long Horn Edition — This truck was great for hauling furniture and had a good V8 engine, however the fuel consumption was not where I wanted it to be. The rear cab is ok for toddlers but a little cramped with a newborn. I did enjoy the truck but would have preferred the HEMI with sport package.
