Great Truck If You Can Afford The Gas — Very stylish appearance with 20" chrome wheels. Good build quality very solid. Great truck with plenty of power & room. Reasonable repair cost. Fun to drive with the sun roof open. 4 wheel drive will get you out of most situations. The gas will eat you alive.

Outstanding If You Dont Mind Filling Up The Tank — everything about it is great except the fuel mileage and the rather outdated interior. it can haul and pull anything you want and seats 6 with plenty of room would probably easily seat 7 if it had the seatbelts. the cargo space behind the back seat is awesome too.

Truck Built For East Texas — I love my truck, Duke. My wife knows I love my truck. Despite needing more power and better fuel mileage, I enjoy driving my truck. Build quality feels strong, interior is very spacious and has a modern look and feel.

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.

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

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.

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

Awesome Truck — Truck is really good shape even though it is almost 7 years old.It is very powerful has about 400 horsepower,had to replace brakes which is normal,also had to rebuild rear end because rear axle seized up.gats around 18mpg on average which isnt too bad for driving around the city with that bug of a truck.Very fun to drive spinning around and gets up to speed pretty fast with no speed limiter or rev limiter.

I Love It. — has 68,000 miles, had brakes done at 64,000 miles. A/C door broke t 44,000 miles. Just started to blue smoke out tail pipe on startup. Yes it is a pleasure to drive. No other problems or complaints. I use it for all needs now that I retired. I owned a 2004 Ram 1500 Laramie, Sport, with a Hemi.. Drove it 80,00 miles Zero problems.

This Truck Is A Lemon!!! — I have had nothing but problems with this vehicle since the day I made the purchase. I go through tires every 6 months. The truck always pulls to the right and shakes violently when traveling at 50 mph or more. No matter how many weights are put on the left the truck pulls to the right, I am up to 16 now. I can hear the wind thru the completely sealed windows when driving. Worst of all, I just went over 100.000 miles, my warranty expired and I started hearing a ticking in my engine. Turns out the #7 cylinder is scored badly and I need to have the engine rebuilt... $5800.00!! I was told by several of the mechanics who looked at the truck that this is a common problem with this year truck and engine. You would think a recall would be issued.

Guts Glory Ram — This P/u has been a family favorite and looks as good as it runs If the hauling of people and gear is your need then I think its a hit, If Dodge had given it a better High gear things would be cheaper
