    Rough Rider — fun to drive. got get-up and go. good quality. needed transmission work when i first bought it. very noisy. paint is peeling. i still like to drive it. goes good in the mud. can not get it over 60 mile per hour or it starts vibrating, fun for some i suppose.

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

    Pros: sounds cool

    Cons: gas milage

    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

    Review — i love this truck, when i bought it, it had a stock 5.9 360 that i blew, my transplant engine is a 426 hemi coupled to a 5speed w/OD auto trans, i couldnt be happier with any other truck unless it was a ram 2500 cummins turbo diesel, this truck is exceptionally built its a daily driver, mudder, tower/hauler, the 4wd doesnt skip a beat it locks in immediatly when i pull my handle, it has the usual dodge rust ie bottom doors front fenders, nothing im worrying about yet though. the interior is nice my truck is fully loaded,

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

    Pros: power power power, good towing cap, great 4wd , amazing sound from the super 44 flowmaster

    Cons: 9-12 mpg, only 3 of 6 speakers work.
