Its Ok Needs Some Work B4 Someone Should Use It Regulary — Great truck for a high school kid. Poor on power. Mine has the 5.9L 4x4 junk. Has a light duty transmission that shifts soft already burnt one up I love its ability off road very stiff suspension compared to my wife's 02 gmc sierra like a dodge takes a great beating

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

Pros: OK truck if u buy one stick money to update trans and put headers on it to gain some power

Cons: transmission and fuel mileage suck

Great First Car — Love it, gas mileage could be better, but with a V8 you cant expect much. with that being said, my ex had a camry 4cyl, and my truck was our road trip car. we fit all of our stuff plus our two small dogs (and dog car seats) in the back seat with plenty of room in the front for her to stretch out and relax while i drove. there are a few comon problems, plenum gasket, transmission (although i havent had any problems with it yet). drivers side seat springs break (not bad though just makes the seat like a bucket seat). definately a fun truck to drive. I upgraded the brakes when i got the big tires. I actually talked a friend into getting a 4X4 st, he then moved to alaska and said he was glad to have the truck.

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

Pros: Great truck.

Cons: gas mileage, but its a truck so i knew that going into it.

This Is A Very Dependable Truck — Has the 318 instead of the 360, I like my Horsepower no matter what the cost ! I would rather it be a Quad Cab because for older folks the back seat is inacessable, other than that this is a great truck.

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

Pros: Engine runs flawlessly, Four Wheel Drive is smooth, Ride and Handling is exceptional.

Cons: No back doors, power windows, or cruise.

Huh? — it accelerates really well, very smooth gear shifts. It doesnt lack power and the four wheel drive works well the exterior is holding up well other than a little rust under the fender wells. it gets roughly twelve miles a gallon

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it can go through ALOT

Cons: it gets terrible gas mileage

98 Dodge 1500 — Its kinda like driving a school bus. Ive never driven a school bus but if I had to imagine what driving a school bus would be like, this is it. Pretty fun to drive, but with the 5.9 liter V8, it drinks gas. Ive driven through a foot of snow and have not got stuck. Have had to get a few repairs on the drive train, transmission, transfer case, and rear u-join. Going to have to replace the front ball joints and drive shaft soon. Overall a good buy for $2,500 and a 97 buick lesabre with 200k on it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Can pull just about anything.

Cons: GAS MILEAGE

Great Truck, Worth The Money. — It is a great truck, Yes it has a small v6 for a truck but it has plenty of power and gets good mpg. It has been very reliable. It did have the torque converter go bad 2 years ago but that was the only major problem it has had.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its my truck and i dont want to sell it.

Cons: It is only 2wd, it would be nice to have a 4wd for bad winters.

If You Need A Good, Affordable Fullsize Truck, The Ram Is Your Best Bet — In the 2 months that I've owned the truck, it's been able to do everything I've needed. It tows, it goes off road well, and it's fairly comfortable around town. Fuel economy is about 12 to 14 mpg. the original transfercase went out @ 116k miles, so I swapped in an NV242.

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

Pros: Plenty of power, great tow rig

Cons: Fuel economy
