Reliable — This truck was handed down, to me , when my Dad passed away. This truck has been reliable, for 23 years! Original Motor, with over 200,000 miles, with very minimal break downs. It has been maintained extremely well, with oil changes, and tune ups, and the rest is just a great truck!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable!

Cons: Power

Big Red Truck — We like to go 4 X 4ing in the mud ... it does need a few repairs but so far has been very reliable. Shaun has a lot of plans to raise it up and put bigger tires on it and maybe even a new paint job for the old girl!!

Pros: 4 X 4

Cons: Rust, Gas guzzler

1989 Dodge Ram 50 "big Horn" 2.6 Liter — I like the fact that it gets good gas mileage, and i like how it drives. It is easy to work on, and for a four cylinder, the 2.6 liter performs wonders. All in all, it is a fantastic little truck.

Pros: Runs great and drives great, fun to drive, bought it for cheap, and very cheap to fix. Has all straight body panels, and only found about a dime sized rust spot on the rear fender.

Cons: Has a few small kinks, but they are being worked out every day.

1989 Dodge RAM 50 Pickup Sport 4WD Review
Fantastic little truck, great on gas, had over 425000 km on it when I sold it. Never failed, only my little Mazda 2300 has ever gotten close to the reliability of that truck

Handling Ranked 2011 Ford Ranger worse.
"I found the steering in the ranger indecisive, I was told its a quality I would have to live with."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2011 Ford Ranger worse.
"Actually the volume is about the same, but he weight was almost double before the tail end got to low. 7 railway ties in the ram50 and only 4 in the ranger. "

Good Commuter Or Mudder, But Not A "truck". By Ben
