Clean — slow acceleration, fun in the mud and snow, clean truck, little rust, gas mileage sucks horribly, and fun to drive. have pulled with it, and won and lost. it sits on 33 inch tires that do ok in the mud.

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

Pros: clean

Cons: gas mileage

Not For Girls, Most Men Or Sunday Drivers And People Who Cant Park — Fantastic, doesnt handle, doesnt do corners, wheel spins, fast, sounds great, big and can run people off the road. What more could you want from a car, oh yes will carry and tow anything. But only for people who can handle proper cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: big is beautiful

Cons: If you cant handle size and power dont get

Amazing — Drives Great. I have a mock up Flowmaster Exhaust kit on it. it sounds awesome. Its mostly stock besides the Exhaust, and cd player. It has high torque for a 1500 compared to my f150. The 4 wheel drive makes it good for mudding.

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

Pros: Tough

Cons: none

Dodge Ram 1500 — My dodge RAM 1500 gets you from point A to B, and thats about it. It can also haul anything I could ever want. However, it is starting to develop transmission problems. Other than that though, it is a very fun car to drive

Pros: Strong engine (when working) Great for hauling and towing.

Cons: Transmission, exhaust fell off

1998 Dodge Ram — Was a solid running truck, motor wise, suffered from two common dodge problems, rust on the bottom of the doors, and the infamous transmission issues. Cost of ownership on the truck was very high, as it only had the 318, and averaged around 11mpg -16mpg (on a good day). other than that a good truck, towed our 24' rinker boat with a tiny bit of problem, but not bad

Pros: fun truck to drive

Cons: expensive to maintain, expensive transmission which commonly failed in these trucks, door rust

One Badass Pickup — I love my truck! It has over 230K miles on it and runs great. Original motor and trans! Very dependable and rugged. Bed is very beat up from previous owner. This truck has a 360 C.I. engine (5.9L) and is a beast. It is equipped with MSD ignition, CAI and Flowmaster muffler (LOUD). Regularly tows 5k pound boat trailer and much more. Loves to eat gas! 12-13 MPG. This truck is very versatile being a pickup, but it also seats up to 6 people. Very fun truck and as a side-note it has been stolen and used in a robbery in the past.

Pros: Pulling trees out by the roots, the look on the guy's face in the new silverado after i lay the smack down on him.

Cons: gas mileage

Better Than Nothing — Engine was blown out at just over 60k miles. Great power while it lasted though. Ride was comfortable. Not much leg room in the back. Plenty of room in the bed of the truck for whatever. Not a truck that i would purchase again. Maybe if it was free i would take it.

Pros: Plenty of Power

Cons: Blown out engine.

Truck — I love my truck. Ive put a good hundred hours of work into it, inside and out. Gas mileage is ok, if i drive normal but i speed. Even though its only 2wd, ive taken it offroad and gotten stuck in 3 foot deep hole. The door scraped the ground as i got out (couldnt see the hole by the way). Had a friend who came and literally jerked me out of the hole. Not a scratch on my truck.

Pros: fun

Cons: gas
