2005 Dodge 2500 Slt Cummins Diesel — This is probably the best truck we've had so far. It has great pulling power and can haul anything we have. It costed 40,000 dollars so we're still paying it off. It is very fun to drive because of the feel when you hear the turbo wind up. It is very fun to drive.

It Is A Great, Hard-working Truck That Can Go Anywhere! And I Mean Anywhere... — It is huge. For example it comes with 33 inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires and a factory 3 inch lift. It has a 12,000 lb. winch that can pull anything you come across... even the 8,510 lb. beast that it is attached to. By the way, another great fact is that it technically weighs 8,510 lbs. therefore, it does not need to have emissions tests because it weighs 10 lbs. over the limit... i'm pretty sure they did that on purpose. which, again, is great. Also it comes with unlockable sway bars and fender flares. It almost has better off-roading capabilities than any other truck on the market and it is not far behind Jeeps. Its approach angle, departure angle, axle clearance, and ramp breakover angle are better than any other truck on the market and are not very far behind the Jeep Wranglers.

Eye Catcher — Very attractive truck. Has held up nicely for 4 years. Does very well in the snow. Very roomy inside. Has been very reliable. Feel very safe when driving in it, and very fun to drive. Low maintenance. Good vehicle to own.

You Can Go Fast, I Can Go Anywhere! — Add 35" tires and with no other changes this truck can be driven anywhere. The many options of the power wagon package make it the off road powerhouse it is. Winch, skid plates, lockers, 4.56 gears, real transfer case and still very reliable grocery geter soccer mom or dad truck.

2005 Ram 2500 Laramie — I bought this truck to haul horses, and boy does it haul! Smooth and strong over mountain passes with 28' goose neck trailer with up to 4 horses. It has also been my main transportation around town which is not so practical; kinda hard to park. But a beautiful truck that I have loved to own.

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

My Truck — 148000, and stiil going strong! This truck has done it all so far and just keeps on chuggin. I have loaded it pretty well, both the bed and trailer. hauled construction equipment, and people. long and short trips, and off road. it needs some lockers on it preferrably front and rear, something has to help get all that power to the ground.At 148000 it does need some repair, it is almost done with its second set of tires, and second set of brakes, and second water pump, and some u-joints, other than that just oil changes. I get about 20MPG . overall the truck has been a great driver, it does most things well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Perfect — I love everything except one thing, I had a recall done on it and if you drive with the door open in reverse the alarm goes off. the power is there, the look is there. I can hook up to a 16,00lb trailer tow it to the mountain unhook, and Drag the truck all day long. it does everything.
