Pros

Strong engine, jake brake, 6-speed automatic

Cons

Emissions junk they put on it needs to be removed!!!

2008 Dodge Ram Mega Cab — It is a great truck with more then enough power to haul the heaviest load. The 6-speed auto works great along with the integrated jake brake. So far no major issues and it rides well for a 1-ton truck.

Pros

Too many positives to list! The big ones are the huge payload (8,000+lbs) and towing (16,000+lbs) capacities, relatively very good average fuel economy for a big pickup (usually 16-17 up to 18+), high reliability, easy handling, huge torque (650 lbs/ft), and lots of comfort options.

Cons

Parking and driving in downtown Seattle can be a bit tricky since this is a beast at 8 feet wide (dually) and almost 22 feet long. Some would consider the ride to be a bit harsh but hey, it's a REAL truck!

One Of The Best Vehicles I Have Ever Owned! — Love everything about it except maybe the parking and the ride, but those are easily overlooked when you consider all it does and has to offer. I would highly recommend this truck to anyone who needs to haul heavy loads or tow big trailers.

All Sport Show Truck — It was a work truck that I used to pull a 45' 5th wheel trailer that was carrying a NASCAR show car and travel all over the country with it. It was great with that big trailer and easy to drive.

I love the new cummins awesome powerhouse

Cons

I don't care for how quiet they are, yeah I know the new EPA standards have caused this

No Hemi Here — I would have the pictures of mine but thanks to AutoOutfitters in Noblesville. But it is Khaki exterior and has Lt. khaki interior. Will spin tires with brake torque and it is a dually. The new 6.7l motor is a powerhouse and it comes stock with an exhaust brake and it works great. I love it. it has a taller four wheel drive stance.

Pros

Great towing/hauling machine

Cons

horrible fuel mileage

25

Great Towing/hauling Machine, Horrible Fuel Mileage. — If fuel is a tax write-off for you, then you will have lots of tax write-offs. It IS however, a great towing/hauling unit. Tank was empty when I bought it, but they paid me back for a tank of fuel after 6.5 months. Expensive work truck. Did not come with nerf bars, and the wife and kids need a step-ladder to climb in.

Cons

Lots Of Room.... And Noise — The truck was comfortable and accerated smoothly... once it got moving. There is a noticable "lag" from the time you step on the gas to when it get going (gas and diesel). I found the truck handled the test trailer (15500lbs) ok, but not stellar, Going up Clappison Corners (47% 5 mile hill) the truck struggled and down shifted to much for my liking. This truck looks pretty much as it did in 94 when it came out (mind you it is a bit more rounder). This truck was a pig on fuel. When it came time to get gas I thougth the diesel was a gas, The fuel it used was crazy. Empty it was ok, but the Cummins is a work horse and one of the best diesels out there, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who likes their neibours and lives in the city, as cold start pretty much scatters all wild life in a 2 mile radius, You can hear the truck start easily from inside a home. Over all though, for a work truck it is good.

chysler

35

Nice Truck, Good Engine, Bad Maker — This is a 3500 Cummins diesel, lots of power obvisously, runs good but its a chyrsler product. its a big ass truck rather it woulda had a 6 1/2 ft bed but you get what you get. acceleration its alot different from gas jobs you really have to get used to the power.
