Ramjam Couldn't Put It Any Petter — the truck is a great piece of machine, the engine is super strong and the style of the truck is just breath taking.. The look is like a normal older dodge with a mean look to it. the style just rolls nothing about the truck makes you confused or something that just shouldn't be there.

Perfect Truck — I love this truck! It Is super reliable and great during rough weather. It has never had any major mechanical issues. I think in part to keeping great synthetics running through it. Massive power when needed; remember its a Hemi!

I Have Owned Other Trucks....i Would Buy Another Ram — I bought the truck new in 2005, used it as my primary transportation for over 89,000 miles. Outside of a few tires and oil changes this vehicle never cost me a dime in maintenance. Never let me down, never broke down and never failed to start.

My Bart — I bought this in 2005 for a business that never took off and my old job never went away, so I was happy. I always had people complement on the looks of the truck...and it was very sharp. I'll actually miss it.

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.

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.

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

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.
