    Some Say Poor Tranny, And Front End. But It Was A 50/50 On The Tranny — the interior is huge and can fit 6 adults in it. the excelerations is good for a truck. same for the handling, it is a truck so don't expect a sports car but it is alot of fun off road. i love the look of these dodges and mine will soon be going under the torch with a baja truck look make overwhich will include a interior roll cage all the way from the engine compartment to the rear bumper.

    Pros: it is big and can haul alot

    Cons: it is big and can't park every where.

    My First Vehicle! — Alot of memories in that truck! I put 80,000 miles on it, in six years.

    Pros: All around great truck. It was a great first vehicle for me.

    Cons: it was two wheel drive but I took it in places you shouldn't have.

    Good Old Truck — 350,000k and the old 318 still runs as good as ever and the tranny is as strong as ever. Aside from a few U-joints here and ther and the steering box that wears out every 150k it's a good truck

    Pros: hard to break

    Cons: 13-18 MPG

    Nice, If It Was Reliable — ok, this isnt mine exactly, its my dads but i drive it a lot so theres my creditability. it has a nice acceleration, top speep, and braking, but the steering has a lot of play and it isnt the easiest truck to control. its been very unreliable for my dad and i as we've both had numerous problems such as, the ignition locking up, and being unable to go into 4WD sometimes.

    Pros: good vision, great braking, fast, good for moving stuff

    Cons: unreliable, gas-hog, steering could be better

    Not As Good As Expected. — I drove my friends truck a few times and I must say that it was not very nice. I had constantly stay on the gas for the motor to stay running, even at red lights... yea, thats fun. The steering is horrible, electrical disaster, rarely starts on the first try.

    Pros: Looks ok and sounds good with the right intake and exhaust setup.

    Cons: Electrical problems all over the place.

    Good Vehicle For Pulling On And Off Road. — Truck works great for pulling. Works very well for off road. Starts in any climate. I have 227,000 miles and still runs great. Still looks pretty good with some rust showing in usual places. Get 17 mpg highway, 12 city and 13 pulling 8000 lb. load.

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

    Pros: Very reliable, starts in any weather/temp. 227,000 miles still runs great.

    Cons: Poor mileage, prone to excessive rust.
