After 3 Years, Still Love The Truck — This is a Sport 4x4 short bed regular cab with the Hemi. I special ordered it with all the electronic goodies. This truck has been the best of all worlds. During the week, it's a commuter. On weekends, it hauls wood, trailers, and whatever else. I do volunteer transporting of pallets of food from a distribution point to a local food bank. This truck is definitely used as a weekend warrior. On the occasions when I've done heavy hauling, I've experienced the coil spring squat that others have mentioned. Even so, the truck still has plenty of power to spare when hauling heavy loads. I tend to be a little heavy with the right foot. This truck is FAST! It is fun to drive. It handles nimbly for a full size truck. Bear in mind this is the regular cab, short bed, 20 inch tire version. Gas mileage can be decent with the MDS. After three years, you can feel when it slips back and forth between modes. With a little practice, you can drive this truck economically (for a full size truck). Vision out of the cab is excellent. Controls are sensibly placed for the most part, once you get used to them. I had a '99 Silverado followed by an '02 Avalanche. After 10 years of using Chevy controls, I was able to adjust to the Ram quickly. The call button for the bluetooth/phone could be closer to the driver. I've owned pick-ups from all three North American manufacturers. The Ram is by far my favorite. There have been some electronic problems. Once, the truck wouldn't start because it wouldn't read the electronic key. Sometimes the electric door locks won't work when you hit the lock button. The CD player sometimes won't read track and artist info on a disc. Except for the one time only not starting issue, these are all annoyances rather than major issues. Would I buy another one? Absolutely!!!

Best Truck For The Money — I traded an extended cab 2008 Silverado Z71 with 5.3 gas engine for this vehicle. I am not sorry. The seats squeek after about three weeks of driving. Im going to take it back to dealer for correction. Love the truck. The HEMI is amazing. As a life long truckowner in a mountainous state I would push this truck forward as the best Ive ever driven.

Pros

The car rides very comfortable, the steering is very sharp, and it looks mean doing it.
Even though its big you feel very in control of the car and the acceleration response very active. The Hemi engine uses 4 cylinders when cruising to safe fuel. The truck can tow anything you might need and trunk bed is very roomy and useful. The rear seats can fold up for extra space.

Cons

Car size can limit parking in condensed spots, and it isn't a gas saver.

All Around Car — I like the many cupholders available in multiple locations, and also the 115v outlet available to charge any kind gadget you have. The big space inside the car is useful and can fit almost anything, and the seats are comfortable to even sleep in. The steering wheel can be adjusted to my satisfaction which is perfect. I like how it rides higher then average cars, and like how people don't cut you over because of it. I love how it can fit my family or friends and we can enjoy traveling and camping. And I definitely love how its mechanics is simple and is reliable through the years.

Pros

I bought this truck new in 2009 and have had now issues with it in 50,000 miles. I am overall very pleased with this vehicle. Very smooth ride, avg 21 MPG highway, no maintenance cost for the first 4 years, very dependable. Plenty of power for a 2-wheel drive as I puller a 6x10 trailer with over 2100 lbs of cargo.

Cons

Horn quit working the the first week of Dec 2012. The back seats are not overly comfortable for long trips with the family. Vehicle has the power, but gas mileage when towing a trailer is not as good as expected. The avg was 15-17 MPG in the 350 miles.

Pros

Great power. Silky smooth ride. Handles better than any other stock truck I driven. You get all the bells and whistles of a very expensive truck with less money.

Cons

Very small bed. Cargo capacity real light. Lots of recalls. Maintenance costs are higher than normal.

Great Truck For Light Duty. Not Made For Work. — Well I bought this truck brand new in Feb of 09 and sold it Feb 12. I was an affordable very comfortable truck with all the bells and whistles...heated cooled seats, heated steering wheel (witch I loved), All the things that come with the Laramie pkg. The HEMI had very good power but Dodge recommends that you change all 16 (that's right 16) spark plugs every 33000 miles. plus the HEMI had a big oil pan 8qts. so oil changes are a little more than normal. Doesn't tow well has coil spings with 4-Link in the back. It also had a lot of recalls. Overall very plush powerful truck for the money just don't think I would use it for heavy work.

I Love This Truck!!! — This Truck has Awesome Performance and its Built pretty good.. I like the tough look/ appearance of it.. Definately love off roadin in this truck which I could do more of this Summer!!! I just wish things werent so expensive when want to modify the Truck.. Even when the Truck is in 4X4 it doesnt feel rough @ when your driving on the city streets or off roadin which I really like cuz when its rough it doesnt feel very nice @ all.. I do still like the Blue color instead of the Gray Color but I still do like it.

One Sexy Piece Of Iron — This truck has impressed me since day one. With 390hp and 407 ft lbs of torque theres no shortage of power to peel a set of 35" tires down to the wires. A heated steering wheel, stitched leather dash, and in-dash dvd audio system rivals many luxery cars. To sum it up, despite being a very expensive truck, it's some of the best money I ever spent.

My Hemi Ram — Power from the 5.7 Hemi kicks in like a lightning strike. Build quality top notch for Dodge. Interior style best ever in Ram. Appearance is stand out especially with the inferno red paint. Cost of ownership is good. Lifetime powertrain warranty! Fun to drive...
