Power, Reliable, Beautiful Truck — I would strongly recommend this truck for someone who intends to use it within their local area. It's poor fuel economy doesn't lend itself for long distance travel. It is reliable and powerful to do whatever work you need from it. The interior room is also makes it perfect for a family of four to travel comfortably..

Pros

Love this truck.  Great in all weather, reliable.

Cons

Gas mileage has improved a lot since 2008.  Although since this trucks has MDS which shuts down 4 cylinders on the highway, it's great on the highway.

Great, Reliable Workhorse Of A Truck! — Love the comfort, drive, power, utility of this truck. This is a good looking, and very functional and comfortable truck. Acceleration is great, towing is great, took this truck through the mountains pulling a 27 foot travel trailer without a problem.

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.

Been A Great Truck For 5 Years. — liked the smooth ride on the highway, handled great and had plenty of room in cab for passengers or items to keep out of weather. Bed Liner and Truxcedo made for hauling valuable goods, and protected. Would by this truck again.

I Wouldn't Own Anything Else Expect A Bigger Ram — This truck over all is a 100% need for anyone who loves trucks likes power and the ability to tow or haul or go anywhere but if you are a Eco freak or worry about gas mileage this truck is not for you

Love My Truck — good acceleration, decent handling (it is a truck), great at stopping no repairs needed so far the gas can be a hefty cost but so far low on maintenance cost for a truck its not bad to drive though its mostly stock (for now anyways)
