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

Pros: sounds cool

100% Tank — Build Quality: Truck holds up very well. Ive never been stranded because the truck broke i sunk it into mud up to the side views. only major repair was a steering box. Car Comparisons: I considered an F150 and a C/K1500, but neither one seemed to get up and go like the ram does.

Tough Quality Truck With Thirsty Engine (5.9) — I have tortured and abused this truck, The cat has been plugged for about 60,000 miles, the tranny ran for about 3,000 without fluid until I made that discovery, I neglected oil changes, tune up and pretty much destroyed this truck due to neglect and complete lack of money. The truck has around 120,000 hard non freeway miles, just tuned it up, changed the water pump, and fixed the catalytic converter, and I'm breaking rubber and growling down the road again. This truck has never let me down and I'll keep it forever. The gas mileage has cost me my rent money a couple times....

Pros: form, function, reliability

Cons: fuel economy

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: IT'S MINE! Lol

Cons: Gas mileage.

Specific To Utility And Individual Taste — Lifted this truck...soo its nowhere near what what would be lke stock. Couple of bolt on for motor.. Drinks gas...(35" tires) The 5.9L 360 is a good motor once the plenum is taken care of. Unitized front bearings are weak and a pain too keep in service.

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

Pros: Big 4x4

Cons: Gas Mileage
