This Was My First Truck, And It Was A Great One! — This was a great truck and I will miss it. However, I will enjoy the sports car I'm getting. I hope whoever the new owner of this truck will be loves it as much as I did. It was very reliable going to and from college/work/long trips. It can definitely withstand long drives also if anyone's curious. It's definitely a fun truck to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: What's not to love. Excellent condition for a '98. Nuff said. Very powerful engine. 3.9 liter magnum v6.

Cons: Hmm if I had to pick out a negative, I guess I would have to say gas mileage. Also, if you're looking for a family car/truck, then this probably isn't for you but that goes for all 2 door trucks.

Okay Truck — its an okay truck. for the fuel mileage you get might as well get one with a V8 and 4WD. only gets about 12 mpg city/17 hwy. i have owned this truck for about 4 1/2 years and it has started every day. strong battery

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: starts every day

Cons: not much power in V6 but gas mileage of a V8

Has What I Need To Do What I Want... For Now. — Feels comfortable to drive, has the power to haul a heavy load. 4x4 good too. Getting close to 300k km on it, ready for a good tune up! Can only travel about 300km per tank of gas, not the best on gas. I like the truck & will put the gas in it to drive it!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good all round 4x4 pick up.

Cons: Can suck back gas when using the power.

Good Truck But When Something Breaks Prepare For An Empty Bank Account — still driving it after 12 years with harsh use. The truck itself is a good build but it is a pain to work on. at 257,000 miles it is expected to have issues, mine just all happened at one time. I had to replace the power steering pump, bypass the a/c compressor, replace power steering hoses, replace all ball joints, replace rear drums and shoes, and put a fan clutch in. All this happened within a month. I love the truck itself but it is a Chrysler product.

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

Pros: the power and comfortability

Cons: unless you are very mechanically inclined not the truck to buy

I Want Fifteen More Of Them :) — Performance - hot off the line. good brakes. a little play in the wheel. Build Quality - typical repairs needed. no squeaks / rattles. Appearance - interior has few scratches. exterior needs some rust proofing. Cost of Ownership - 12.5 miles per gallon. needs tune-up. it is coming :) Fun Factor - the car is too much fun to drive. has a lot of memories too.

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

Pros: If you wanna go fast.  Real fast.

Cons: BIG.  RED.  RUMBLE.
