Pros

Because it is a beast, rides amazing, tons of power.

Cons

Not the best MPG but it is an 8 cylinder hemi.

65

It Is Awesome, Looks Great And Drives Better. — Easy to dive, doesnt seem huge like it might from the outside. Accelerates exactly as you want it to, plenty of breaking power, and handles like a dream (if you are pulling a trailor you wont evn notice it). It is built like a rock, no noticable squeeks or rattles unless you are off a paved or gravled road. Interior is a bit easy to stain but no biggie, and the exterior is awsome, all chromed out with rails and handles, huge tires come stock (20 inch rims) and a royal blue color. Gas is not the best but it does nice for its size, 13-15.5 in city (depending on how many lights i hit and how annoyed i am) and i've had up to 20 on higway but that is only about a quarter tank worth on higway (criusin at 65). The only not fun thing is i don't have 4wd and its stil so new to me i try to take it easy.

Pros

This truck has space to spare. The5.7 Hemi delivers all the power most would want.  Handles well for a 6800 pound truck.

Cons

Fuel mileage, front ball joints.

More Room Than You Know What To Do With. — The Dodge Mega Cab is just that MEGA. Room for all. Love it! Power is good but could be better if the torque management system was eliminated. All controls are easy to access seats are very comfortable and even better with the 6 way power option. The optional stereo sys. really provides great sound. These truck do have front ball joint issues which I have had mine already replaced at 31K miles. Fuel mileage is low but you don't buy a truck like the mega cab and worry about fuel mileage. The 1500 is the same as the 2500 except for towing capacity and payload. Only a few hundred pounds difference. The bucket seat option along with the extra large cab provides plenty of storage for almost anything.

Top Notch Truck — My pick up is the nascar edition and is a dream to travel in. There are 2 adults, 2 teenage girls and two dogs and we drove for 2 12 hour days of driving on our holidays and never had a "not enough room issue" I get 17 to 25 miles to a gallon. The power is unreal, you never have to worry about passing or any thing when you drive this truck.

Pros

It was the most luxurious ride in a pick up I had the fortune of experiencing when I bought it. It handles well and still runs quiet and smooth after 85000 miles.

Cons

The Driver seat has always had a cushion problem on one side causing a lean. I don't think the cushioning was sufficient or properly applied.

She's A Beaut! — It's a classy style of pickup. Not overstated in any way, but never lacks in the looks department. This model has stood the test of time and should continue to do so. The ride is very smooth and quiet. Handles highway and city streets and country roads with ease.

Cons

it's only a 2WD

Dodge Ram 1500 Megacab 2wd Slt — Overall I love this truck. MPG isn't great but it's good for the size and it performs well. It can tow up to 12,500 on the trailer and about 5,000 in the bed. The bed cover is nice too for long trips, but it can be a pain to get it off and back on again.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Owners Paradise — Overall it's a great truck. There's plenty of room in it, although the back seat might feel a little cramped for taller people. It handles great and I've never had a problem pulling anything with it. Getting close to 100,000 miles and couldn't be happier. Just make sure you stay on top of the oil changes, air filters, and kepping it clean; It goes a long way!

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

A+++ Dodge Ram — I love everything about it. It's roomy interior. Nice cloth seats, I hate leather. The hemi is amazing! It just gets up and goes when you want it to! It's actually the Big Horn edition and that option wasn't on the review page. :o)

Pros

Power, handling, visibility, interior room, hauling and towing

Cons

Brakes are little under sized, wheels and tires should be bigger especially on an 8 lug axle. Fuel mileage is low but the truck weighs over 4 tons.

A Keeper — With all the interior room this has, it has been a great family truck. The back seat area is every bit as big as the front. At more than 4 tons and four wheel drive, this beast doesn't lose traction often. At more than 20 feet long sometimes it's difficult to find a parking space.

The Best Truck On The Road — My third Ram in many years and I am loyal to the brand and will not buy any other. This particular truck has been very good to me and gets decent gas mileage and the ride is excellent. Tons of room in the cab and even enough room for my 120 lb dog in the back seat
