Pros

The most powerful truck I've ever owned.  Starts everytime and runs like a top.

Cons

Wish the back seat was bigger.  Wish it rode a little better.

Perfect — Overall a fantastic truck. With enough horsepower to pull down a house and get the mileage of a 1/2 ton truck. I do wish the back seats were bigger and the front seats were a little more comfortable. Well built truck.

Dodge Ram — Great car, used only for a purpose though. Great quality. Performance in this model a tad lacking, but can be fixed. Great Value for a great work horse. Drives well for a car for its size. Highly Recomended. Is that 40 words yet?

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

The Absolute Worst Vehicle I Have Ever Owned — First I had a 2004 Ram 1500 Laramie quadcab 4x4 hemi and it was a sweet ride and when we needed a truck to haul our new 34 foot travel trailer decided a 2008 Ram 2500 Megacab 4x4 would be the answer. Thats where things went bad, first this thing rides like a tank and just about knocks your filling out over bumps (why would any manufacturer spec tire pressures of 60f/70r in a truck that is rated to tow less than their own 1/2 tons)to start this 38 trips to the shop in 23 months. 3 windshield wiper motors, 3 blower motors, replaced intermediate steering shaft twice, all the steering components once and a couple twice and the truck still drives like it's on marbles and just wants to wander around, I got used to that but try that with a 34 foot trailer out back. Cruise control works only when it wants to, replaced all the doors and motors on the heater box and then had to replace the entire heater box assy and I won't even know if it works till it hits -35 this coming winter. Everything in the truck rattles or squeaks and the wind noise about makes you want to cut your ears off. The latest we are waiting for a new front wheel bearing and cruise control buttons the god only knows what will happen. The service managaer has admitted this is the worst truck he has ever seen. It is bad enough that Chrysler Canada extended the bumper to bumper from 60,000Km to the 100,000km of the power train but of course they won't replace the truck. I can't even count the number of hours of lost work taking this thing to the shop. And of couse the sales dept would gladly get me out of it for a measly 10 to 15k more for a 2008 quadcab diesel. Gotta love a truck that less than 2 years old is worth way less than half what you paid for it to trade in. This will be the last Dodge I own and I am stuck with this piece of junk for another few years till the loan gets rightside up. I fear whenthe warranty is gone in abt another month this thing will end up setting in the yard broken and I will still be paying through the nose for it and does Dodge care??? Only in your wildest dreams. I get sick to my stomach every time I get in this thing now and it is my daily driver.

Pros

Off-road capability of the Dodge Powerwagon is exceptional. Taking into account that it is a full size pickup, not a nimble little Jeep, it really gets around well with the 4x4, Warn winch from the factory, front and rear electronic lockers, 4:54:1 gears, Hemi power, higher than normal ground clearance, electronic disconecting sway bar and skid protection for the front differenctial and fuel tank

Cons

With great power comes great responsibiliy...and lower fuel economy :(. HOWEVER, in my pickup, slowing down just a little and putting in a higher octane fuel has resulted in very noticable milage increases. I can get as good as 16MPG on the highway. For a 3/4 ton gas fuelled truck that is OK considering the size and power.

Power Wagon — Towing is moderate on this truck. Keeping in mind it is not diesel, it should not be held to those towing expecations. With a little tender driving this truck can meet most towing needs of the weekend warriors. However, be prepaired for some MPG shock and don't pass up too many fuel stops as pulling a 5th wheel or like weighted trailers can lower milage into the single digits.

Pros

the fact it has somewhere around 500 horsepower and it still has the same fuel economy as stock

Cons

i do dislike how short the bed is, and how heavy dodge has made it

Amazing Truck, All Around Useful And Incredibly Fun To Play Around With — after the exhaust was installed it gained an amazing sound on startup and running down the road. after the rebuild it gained a deeper note and some amazing performance. it has lost a little reliability, sometimes it does stall but it is still amazing for an everyday vehicle. nicest part is it can blow just about any vehicle away.
