Amazing — This truck is great. I loved it from the start. Has a great navigation system, heated seats, and very roomy front. It pulls like it has nothing behind it. Many people say its too big. But if you are looking for a large vehicle. This is the one for you.

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

Great Truck For Everyone, Won't Be Disappointed! — Liked the space, options, back seat folds completely down, sunroof! Dislikes were mainly fuel consumption and I got mine used so it had a few dings as well as some dog hair and there was some paint in the bed that wouldn't come off!

Pros

It has room galore. Easily 6 adults could ride in it. It rides like a car, very smooth. It gets GREAT gas mileage for a truck as it has a 6-speed manual transmission and is a 6-cyl.It is a beautiful truck and looks clean all the time even when it is filthy because of the silver color. It also has step sides so it is very easy to get in and out of.

Cons

It is a 6-cyl. so for a truck it doesn't have tremendous power. It hauls a great load of weight in the bed but I have never had to tow something so I am not sure about towing power.

This Truck Is Very Reliable And Very Safe. It Is Big And Sits Up High So You Feel Safe! — This truck runs absolutely great. Had the oil changed on time or early. Has never been wrecked or in a flood. It does have some very minor dings. The windshield has not cracks or dings in it.

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.

A Good Truck By Jeepmaniac

It was a good truck and now has about 120K miles on it. I would consider another truck just like it if I could find one to fit the budget. Four wheel drive is a must when you live in a rural area. Read More
