Pros

20 MPG!  and a tow MONSTER!

Cons

The stock tires are crap.

Pure Diesel! — Fitted with a Cummins turbo diesel engine! There is not many full size trucks on the road that can get over 20 MPG or haul 20,000 #'s! 610 Ft pounds when stock and can be tweaked to over 800 ft pounds real easy.

Awesome Dodge — The cummins motor is strong, bought this for torque so I can tow my toy hauler. Dont have any quality issues. Like the Mega cab for all the versatility and space for kids. Cost has been minimal. After I added an edge juice with attitude CTS i cant keep my foot out of the gas pedal

2000 Pounds Of Durability Under Your Feet — Great handling. Beautiful look. inside and out. Very reliable. No need to worry if it can make it to your destination or not. This is the ideal truck for anyone who has a job that intitles lots of horsepower, or for the outdoory person. I would fully recommend this vehicle.

Pros

it rides really well and it has good mileage. It felt comfortable when riding and overall relaxing in it.

Cons

I am a small person so seeing out of the mirror is hard but I found ways to work around it.

35

Comfortable And Reliable — Acceleration was decent for its size and age. It handled very well on the road for long distance and short distance. About 28 mpg on long distance drive even with traffic. Not very bad blind spots and it was fairly easy to see people around me. The ride was comfortable, the diesel wasn't too loud in the cab, it sounded like a dull hum.

Pros

Looks amazing, drives amazing, very comfortable, fuel efficient for a vehicle it's size (18 MPG), and it has an iPod hookup!

Cons

Have you seen the price of diesel lately?

Built Ram Tough! — My Uncle Craig has a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Lone Star Edition, white with a gray clother interior, 4x4, and all the options. It has an insanely powerful Cummins diesel engine and as my dad found out, for a vehicle its size, it is a joy to drive. I did not get to drive it, unfortunately, because i was recovering from a broken arm.

Reliable Work Horse Or Just A Big Powerful Daily Commuter. Safe As Well. — I personally like this truck very much. Can't really find any cons. Really enjoy the powerful Cummins, the features, the looks and an unexpected 22-24 miles per gallon on the highway. About 19 in town. Great truck if you need to tow or just as a daily driver.

Best Motor For Med Duty Truck — This truck is more than able to pull anything you have. With a few upgrades, you can make it more fun to drive. The shocks from the factory are some of the worst so upgrade to racho 9000 xl and that is no longer an issue. Swap out the super heavy/stiff springs in the rear with air ride bags and then the truck becomes a whole new beast.

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

Pros

powerful, reliable, and low cost of ownership

The Hemi doesn not sip the gas, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Dodge Ram — Absolutely the best truck I've ever owned. My next truck will be a Dodge Ram. I love the way it handles and even the sound when she starts up in the morning. The power is amazing more than enough to tow, haul, or just have a great time in this truck.

Ugly Unreliable Dodge. — Sheesh, youd think I'd learn by now. This truck has the HEMI and 4WD but come on - the ride is so tight I cant even drink a coffee, It doesnt even have 30,000 miles on it yet and things are going wrong. Give me back my GMC. I could go on and on.
