Great Vehicle — great power, great fuel milage, able to tow heavy, light or in between with ease. Easy to work on, simple set up and parts are not typically expensive. Overall very handy truck with superior power and solid performance. I would buy another.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Big Red Truck — This is an outstanding work truck and family transport. I have a large family and as a result I require an exceedingly large vehicle. this truck is the best of both worlds and fills that role in an outstanding luxurious manner.

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

Its awesome.

Its expensive to buy, and with the right foot, it may not e too good on gas.

Great For Hauling Things, Towing, And Showing Off. — Awesome freakin truck. If you give it gas and brake at the same time to charge the turbo, and let up on the clutch just right, you can beat one of those silly little "sportscars" off the line with a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds, and 0-100 in about 8 or 9 seconds...

2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab Slt 2500 4x4 — I just picked it up last week, I will update this later. The torque is amazing, and for a large truck it gets pretty good economy. 12.8L/100kms (22 Imp. mpg). Huge interior space for the kids and dogs. It is a very imposing truck. It is a very good looking truck! It isn't sporty, but you feel invincible in it.
