Pros

Great horse power and pulls trailers and loads with ease. Great mileage driving in town and on highway. The storage capacity is superb, the only other one better being the mega cab for the extra foot and compartments that come with it.

Cons

Not much for cons, except you should always take good care of your fuel. The fuel pump/ filter unit alone is 450.00 and that's without installation. It's got 16 spark plugs so a tune up is a bit more expensive.

It's A Great Truck To Have And I Love It. — I've had this truck for years and it still runs great and I've had no trouble with it. General maintenance is easy and if you take care of whatever you're driving it will last a long time. Still looks wonderful and drives just as good as the day I got it. It handles very well on and off road. I've taken it on quite a few long trips. The cab is spacious and seating comfortable for long drives. The truck bed invaluable when having to move anything. I can strap down three dirt bikes side by side in it when I go to the track. I've helped moved a ton of stuff with it. Over all it has been a great truck and I plan on keeping it.

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.

Perfect Work Truck, As Well As Daily Commuter. — I love this car, It works perfectly for my every day use and it also works well for my sister who has a horse and trailer to pull. Its durable and has yet to have any problems throughout its 140000 miles

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.

Stole it from a dealer at $11,000 with 8 miles on it

Cons

Base Model, power nothing

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)
