1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Extended Cab — I love my Dodge Ram! It has an amazing engine sound and you can feel that 4.2L V8 Magnum power! It isn't too expensive to insure but gas mileage is low obviously. Although it gets great mileage for a full size pickup! It is very fun to drive and I find myself driving around aimlessly in it for hours, it rides like a dream!

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

Pros: Extended cab, suspension, horsepower, roomy interior, bucket seats, V8 engine

Cons: gas mileage, poor turning axis

Wont Let You Down — Was the best vehical iv ever owned, it never let me down, and i put 30,000 miles on it in one summer. Despite the gas milage, I should have never sold it. If anyone looks for a truck in the future look for a dodge.

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

Pros: Reliable

Cons: gas guzzler

1500 Ram Club Cab Long Bed 4x4 — Good over all truck, it has a new frontend under it. Winter tires, the 4wheel drive works great. I have taken it off road a couple times, the only problem is the truck is over 7000 pounds. and is way to long to fit in a standard garage. It can tow around 5500 pounds more then i need for anything.

Pros: Tow just about anything, Goes about anywhere.

Cons: Long bed and club cab make it a tight fit in alot of places.

My First Truck, Been Through So Much... Still Mpar Strong — Slow but shifts smoothly and handles awesome. The 8ft bed with the regular cab looks like an average truck which is how is handles good... also because its 2wd, its low which gives it a low center of gravity... 2wd 8 ft bed 5 speed is just fun!

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

Pros: looks, and drives like no other truck from '97

Cons: avood if high mileage

I Didn't Buy It For Economy - I Bought It Because I Love Having A Big Truck That Feels Like It. — My Ram RAWKS!!! Never had a vehicle that fits me better... with the exception of the Jeep. It's the closest to new vehicle I've ever bought (only 2 years old when I snagged it from an online dealer) and I've had it 10 years now. I intend to drive it til the wheels fall off, then glue 'em back on and drive it some more.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of room for tall & big people, design still looks fresh, runs like a champ.

Cons: Horrendous gas mileage (maybe 12 mpg city, 19 highway)

Great Truck — I bought this truck about 5 years ago with 182,000 miles on it for $6000.00. I thought at the time it was a deal even with the high mileage. I now have 230,000 miles on it and it still a reliable truck. Only things I have had to replace on it are water pump, cat. converter, and power steering hose. Air is still cold and I use the truck daily. Highly recommend this truck to anyone!

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

Pros: reliable

Cons: age

My Truck — I'm a dodge woman and wouldn't have it any other way, I do wish it was a 4x4 though.....then I wouldn't get stuck in the mud lol. Other than Dodge's transmissions aren't the greatest mine hasn't gone yet with 73,000 miles on it (knock on wood)

Pros: It's a TRUCK!

Cons: It's rear whell drive

Its My All Time Favorite Truck — very smooth ride coupled with good performance (for a truck) make it the best generation of the dodge ram in my opinion. premium leather interior and sound system make it a good riding truck and the small-block Magnum V8 make it a good work-horse. invest a grand or two into it and you've got a very formidable engine set-up. but it is a truck so don't expect it to go easy on the gas.

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

Pros: good performance with great ride

Cons: Gas
