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.

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.

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!

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

Rarely beaten in power, plenty of cargo capacity and people get out of your way when you get behind them

Cons

Repairs seem to be adding up now that ive crossed 90k miles once the repairs are made the parts perform solid but most parts seem to have 90k life span before they break

Love Hate Relationship — I absolutely love my truck - as much as my dog and almost as much as at wife but for all the things i love about it the repair costs and games played by chrysler are starting to get old. It's quite likely that when I do finally get another truck it will be another Ram but i'll do a little more research on the next one before jumping into bed with it. Not all chryslers are problematic my wife has an '11 Jeep patriot and that thing is awesome, no problems tons of space and excellent traction control/ 4wd - HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a small suv - 30mpg highway regularily 26 city with mid grade

Great Vehicle! — This truck has plenty of power and plenty of room. I have towed pretty big boats with it and never had a problem. The 4x4 is a must have for snow and mud. I like the power sliding back glass. The 6 foot bed has plenty of room to put things in it.

Pros

Good truck this is my third Dodge Ram 1500, style looks good and plenty of room plus 4 wheel drive, has 105K with no engine problems or trans problems.

Cons

Problems that have occurred were heater would not blow heat in floor, in shop twice before repairs done right, cruise control has gone out 3 times and computer replaced, this last time only lasted 2 months and it's going back to shop again, problem is that truck accelerates when cruise set and keeps accelerating.

Overall A Very Good Truck — I like the Dodge Ram 1500 overall the only problems I have had is with the heater and the cruise, after the last repair on the heater it has been working good for the last year, the cruise control problem is the worst problem to date, you would think that it could be repaired after 3 new computer modules had been replaced, guess I'll find out this week when it goes back in the shop for repairs.

I Love It Wont Do With Out It — I love the looks, the fell when I drive it, my kids hate that there is no leg room in the back. When you lock it in, it will go. I have pulled chevs out of places with it. never a ford or another dodge.
