Hemi Rocks — So far this is an awesome truck. Power,looks, ride, even gas mileage since it's got the MDS. And FUN..rides like a caddy, tons of room in back. Soundstem fantastic, Instrument panel very easy to use and change things.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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...

Where to start... power, comfort, handling...

The ONLY complaint I have is that the paint quality could be improved.

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.

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.

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.

Pros

The inside is very roomy.  I like the Alpine stereo system upgrade and the touchscreen user interface.  It is very comfortable to drive.

Cons

Gas guzzler, but this is expected with a 5.7L Hemi engine.

Big Bad Red! — The inside is very roomy. I like the Alpine stereo system upgrade and the touchscreen user interface. It is very comfortable to drive. It's a gas guzzler, but this is expected with a 5.7L Hemi engine. I like the truck a lot and is much different than my Crossfire that I traded in. I miss the sport car though.

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.

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.
