Love It! This Is My Second Ram Quad Cab And I Would Buy A Third. — Build quality is very good, but wish doors closed quieter (tighter). Power is great especially with a chip, cold-air intake, and Flowmaster exhaust. Appearance is awesome. Cost to maintain is low and average mileage is around 16+. Hiway mileage is pushing 19. I still think the transmission shifting and gear engaging could be improved, especially when using the cruise control--way too much "jerkiness" when the MDS system is working. The only way to eliminate this factor is to use the tow/haul button which effectively eliminates the MDS system. Love to drive it!!

2008 Ram Big Horn Edition — I've had this truck for about 4 months. so far i am happy with the performance (5.7 hemi) but the MPG isn't as good as a 2006 Chevy silverado that i owned previously. Quiet ride for a full size truck! No rattles. The cons - needs a 2" lift on the front end to improve appearance. not as comfortable as the silverado, but i drove it on a 2000 mile trip over thanksgiving and it didn't leave me sore or fatigued. Overall, i would recommend this truck to friends.

2008 Dodge Ram Sxt — It's a truck. No doubt about it. My first truck since a 1966 chevy pick up. Not disappointed at all. The 3.7 has plenty of power for what I need. The ride is comfortable on the open road. (a little rough around town, but it is a truck) Appearance is classy, but not overdone. Cabin is large enough that no one gets cramped. Easy read instrument panel, and controls. I like it and would reccomend it.

2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Slt Quad 4x4 — It's a great truck! I bought it brand new, so I haven't really had time to break it yet. However, it's easy on gas around town (I get about 13mpg) if you get the 5.7L Hemi Multi-Displacement Engine. Good power, but I feel like it should be able to put you in the back of your seat. Paint is not as durable as on other vehicles. Looks great!

The Dodge — I love my Truck. Trucks are for Girls Anyhow. It is King Cab Hemi 4x4 and I couldn't have asked for a better truck. I absolutley have no complaints. And let me tell you it can run. Actually it floats. It is roomy and has lots of places to keep your vehicle organized. And it has never been washed by a brush. I go to brushless only. I don't want to scratch the black paint with the sparkle flecks in it. This truck is my baby.

2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Single Cab — I enjoyed having the 5.7 Hemi when I needed to tow something. I also liked the SLT package becuase of the larger wheels and tires. The only downside was the single cab, as this is not ideal for a family with kids.

It's A Truck. Capital T, Period At The End. — It's been fun to own, gets me around and allows me to move my motorcycle when I need to. There's nothing special about it other than the fact that Dodge has the most features on their base model trucks! And cheap, stickered at $23K, drove it off the lot at $11K.
