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.

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

Pros

Lots of Power, Great Gas Mileage, Great Body-Style

Cons

Hard to Park, Cheap Interior

Nic's Dodge — The 5.7L Hemi has a lot of oomph. I just put a Flowmaster 50 Series on it. It sounds great! I just got some Cooper Zeon LTZ tires on it too. It's got 20 inch wheels that look cool. The interior is a little cheap. Typical for American made cars / trucks. The truck is equipped with the Multi-Displacement System (MDS) and gets great gas mileage for a vehicle of this size. (16 - 20mpg) So far, so good. I like it a lot.

Pros

The Hemi is amazing. Can be modified easily. Very smooth to handle and drive

Cons

Definately, if you can afford it

25

06 Dodge Quadcab — Its not an SRT 10...sadly. Other than that, there are a few minor problems. The brakes squeal sometimes a high pitched noise, but its usually because buildup of dirt particles acrews easily. The wheel is a little loose, and therefore, if you prefer a racing type suspension wheel (camero, corevette, etc), you will be disappointed. The A/C already needed some work, as a vaccum was broken. Also, a steep asking price of over $30,000 new.

I love everything about this truck!

The only bad thing was it got scratched up a lil bit

Dodge Ram — I love big trucks! I never had to put this truck into 4WD when driving through snow and there was nothing in the bed to weigh it down. Tons of room for me and my friends, and my pets. The Hemi had more than enough power for me. I loved this truck!

Has the cab space and peppy pull of a big truck!

Cons

Has a sensitive computer that doesn't like glicthes.

2006 Dodge Mega Cab 1500 — The Mega Cab gasoline pickup is actually on a 3/4 ton frame and axle set up. It has all the pull you need for most applications, and yet the feel of a nice family vehicle for a truck. We bought this for two reasons: 1.) For larger cab space for the family of five, and 2.) for the ability to pull heavier loads. It has been a good vehicle for the most part. However, we have had some electrical, computer oriented issues. They have all been fixed with relative ease under the manufacturer warranty. If the problem persist after the warranty, I'll be mad, and not as pleased with this vehicle. We will revisit our dealership for a remedy.

Pros

This car hauled serious ass with the 5.7 hemi under the hood and the on the fly 4wd was sweet in weather.

Cons

$100 at every fill up was what ultimately caused the trade in of my beloved cuteness.

35

Beefy Hemi Truck — This was my first car, or truck, and I bought it new in the summer of 06 and i owned it for a little more than a year before I had to trade it in. But the HEMI had power to spare and I loved it.

Pros

I put aftermarket exhaust on it. Its loud, and i like that. I also go hunting so this is the only main reason i use the truck bed

Cons

Small v8 motor, not 4 wheel drive, cloth interior, poor gas mileage, low occupancy.

Truck Is Good If You Use It For What It Was Made For. — ok, I personally like cars better which is why I don't like the dodge 1500 pick up very much. This truck is only 2 door, so you cant carry anything hardly. Interior has cloth, so it stains everything, im pretty sure water even leaves a stain. I will never own another vehicle with cloth interior. I don't do any hauling, so I am not using the truck for what it was made for. I am notting getting full use out of it. I do, however, drive it off road. This gives me much more access to the terrain than i would have otherwise with a car. Overall, I would only get this truck if you're going to use the pick up bed and use it for what it was designed to do
