Buy It, Or Find A Friend That Will Let You Drive It And Try It Out....to Each His Own — If you want a truck with lots of storage space and seating for six then this is your truck. Having the 4-doors and room for six makes it easy to do the weekend camping trip or the earily morning trip for hunting season. Mine was bought used and came with the towing package W/7-pin trailer hookup and trailer break. The first week end I rented a 17 foot trailer packed up the family and headed over to the ocean. Supprisingly I got about 21 MPG heading over there...and thats with the 5.7 HEMI in it. Over all the styling on the interior is great very roomy and is great for a long trip with six in the cab. The Fold out mirriors were helpful as well with the trailer. The only problem i have found with this truck is it takes a while to engage the 4-HI and the 4-LO...and repairs are pricey.

Great, Well-built Truck! — I chunked a brick at it, and it didnt even dent. It is such a sterdy, well-built truck! On the road, it drives so well and it drives even better off of the road! The interior is so roomy and comfy, and the controls are easy to use. I highly reccommend it to anyone!

Pros

HEMI nuff said

Cons

The stock exhaust.

Good All Around Vehicle. — It is a good rig for most every thing that I do. From working out in the field to goofing off on the trails I use my truck for every thing. Dont have to add much to improve the way it looks, Chrome grill guard and nerf bars are all I added to its appearance.

Looks Good, Sound System Sounds Good, Fun To Drive But I Have Too Heavy Of A Foot — Good towing, havent found anything that can tow it backwards yet. looks good when its all shined up. takes alot of fuel to do a simple task, but makes up for it with power and torque =) Has a aftermarket Rockford Fasgate sound system that daddy doesnt like as much as me or mom lol

Just plain fun, and it looks mean as hell

Cons

not for the lead footed type with gas prices being how they are

35

Its A Great Truck And I Owuldnt Trade It For Anything But A More Built One Like And Srt10 — THe brakes work amazingly, it handles like a truck, no repairs so far but i have noticed that when i jam the gas and the cold air intake roars it rattles the dashboard by the windshield. its terrible on gas but fun to drive. The only issue is that is doesnt have a posi or limited slip rearend, and the transmission is a little slow.

Pros

It's speed and handling makes me feel like I'm in a sports car

Cons

I would say gas mileage but it is pretty good for a non-desiel truck

All In All For Not Being Finished In My Favor Yet I Must Say This Truck Is Amazing — I had this truck custom blue printed from the beginning. It is a HO 318 w/ 6spd. The 4 wheel disc brakes make braking an issue for the older Rams. I'm looking to rebuild this truck into a real off-road machine with a 426 fuel injected Hemi, I also have a set of Dana 60 and 70 axles and an 6" suspension lift. I would like to install a 3" body lift and paint the whole truck black with orange trim and a set of stacks.
