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.

Great Vehicle, If You Have Regular Need To Tote Or Tow Stuff — Great riding truck. Much better MPG than the EPA ratings. I get between 19 and 24MPG highway depending on how much up and down driving there is. Fully loaded towing the Volare' the mileage is more like 15MPG. Only a small bit of trouble going up steep grades fully loaded and towing the Volare'. It regulary averages 17MPG combining highway, city and heavy traffic in the DC area. Had no trouble getting to work, 25 miles away, in the recent snow storms. We use the RAM as our family vehicle and is our vehicle of choice for road trips. There is room for us, our stuff, our big dog (great dane/black lab mix) and plenty of extras.

Pros

Dependable and powerful!  Dodge knew what they were doing with this year group.  Love the style and curves...and the color is a Dark Molten Cherry with brilliant clearcoat which is not very common among Dodge Rams.

Cons

Tires...seems the suspension just wears through the tires quicker than I would expect.

Amazing Girl!!! — There really is nothing I dislike about this truck. It is easy to work on...for the most part. It is probably one of the most dependable vehicles I have ever owned. 277,000 miles and I bet she'll go another 100,000 before I have to rebuild the engine or tranny. I get tons of compliments on her all the time...people are amazed at how many miles Charlene has on her. My daughter who will be 16 in January wants me to give her my truck and told me to go buy a Hellcat. LOL! My truck is so functional. I do a lot of yard work and wood work in my spare time, so I need a strong truck that has great room for large or heavy loads. Additionally, the cabin has a great amount of room to get a little freaky with my lady...or just stretch out and take a nap at lunch time! Wouldn't trade her for the world!!! Oh, and I outfitted her rims with 305 50R/20 (came stock with 275 60R/20). I like the wider tires...plenty of clearance, fit the stock rims nicely and handles much better in turns and in soft sand and just looks at bit more bad ass as a HEMI should!

Rumble Bee — I absolutely love my Rumble Bee (Second Swarm #4855). Even in her stock form, she's fast, and still turns heads everywhere I go. The gas mileage sucks but with my short commute I'm not too concerned about it. So far she has 62,000 miles on the clock and is still running strong.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Slt 4x4 Daytona Edition. — This truck just feels so comfortable when in it, Drives smooth plenty of power the perfect hemi sound threw the borla exhaust... thanks to the 20 inch rims I sit higher then most trucks with lifts... Handling is amazing for a truck I can turn on a dime the brakes are enough to throw anyone into the windshield lol and its the BIGGEST head turner I mean its hard not to notice a massive orange dodge with a wing on it... as for gas mileage Im basically driving a tank, the way I drive in the city its an average of 4-8 mpg and whenon the highway, driving VERY nicely is about 13 mpg... It's worth the gas mileage tho because its a blast lol

All Around An Amazing Truck, Can't Ever Let It Go! — Jet black outside, grey interior inside.Great build quality, no leaks, squeaks, completely solid. It will definately lay you back in the seat when you mash down on the gas, which is my favorite part. Gas mileage suffers a little bit, especially when towing, but I can live with that.

Good Overall Truck — its got the 5.7L HEMI. it can get you from 0-60 pretty fast, but it can barely break-loose on dry pavement to save its life. it can take a beating. gets about 14 MPG. and is really fun to drive.
