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.

My Dodge Ram — Even stock, my truck gets TONS of compliments. It shines up nice, and always catches looks. It has great gas mileage, and one tough engine. It's 13 years old, so of course, it needs regular maintenance, but nothing excessive. Overall, it's the perfect truck!

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

Pros: Overall Look

Cons: Nothing!

Get One! — One hell of a truck. Can pull any thing you put behind it and still looks dam good going down the road.Much higher at stock hight than a ford or a Chevy. All and all I love it and it treats me well.

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

Pros: Big

Cons: rides rough

Love It!!! — Everything is nice about it, except for the interior. The dashboard is made of really cheap material. If dodge work on the interior, then people won't change their RAM. It really costs to fix the interior. At least 2 dash boards every 5 years

Pros: Noise is great...king of the roads

Cons: MPG

My Truck — My truck seriously needs a new paint job, but the body is still intact; no dents or dings. The gas mileage is really the only drawback of my truck; I think it only gets 15 MPG. When I first got it, I spent a lot of money on repairs, but it's better now. The previous owner/s did not do much preventive maintenance on it before I got it.

Pros: power, handling, interior comfort

Cons: gas mileage

Days Gone By — This truck was awesome, never had any problems with it. It was modified in many different ways, suspension, exhaust, drive train, paint work, interior, the list goes on... I sure had a lot of fun working on this toy with my friends in Chilliwack, we had many hours and beers invested into this truck.

Pros: great truck, great memories

Cons: our family outgrew this 1500 4x4, moved up to the 2500HD MEGACAB 4x4

Best Truck I Have Ever Owned! — Its a 1996 Indy Pace Truck with low miles. it performs great with awesome acceleration. sucks up gas like none other tho with its big 360 5.9L V8. gets lots of looks driving around town and people cant believe when i tell them its 12 yrs old. they think its at the most 5 yrs old.(haha) well not to much to say other than i love it so much. i would so recommend this car to anyone, only problem is that is a rare truck an may be hard to come by.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Gas mileage and RWD...suck in winter an rain :(

Best Truck Ever Created — INDY 500 Edition. Really fast, will spank any "muscle" truck. Very loud and sounds mean. If you really wanna spend a litle money, the dodge ram of 96 is the one to own because its awesome.

Pros: Quick, Loud, Special Editon

Cons: age

It was a good truck and now has about 120K miles on it. I would consider another truck just like it if I could find one to fit the budget. Four wheel drive is a must when you live in a rural area. Read More
