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!

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Just plain fun, and it looks mean as hell

Cons

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

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.
