    Great Truck — Unfortunately i didnt have a great income at the time i bought so i bought a decent v6. I love my truck, it has vinyl floors, no electric windows or locks, so basically nothing major than can break on it... its dualed out and has a bed liner, toolbox, and running boards, and semi-oversized tires..

    Pros: looks good, sounds good, runs good

    Cons: needs some new paint

    A Great Truck — This was my dad's car in high school, and I would drive it on the weekends. First of all, this was a sharp looking truck. Ours was fire engine red with chrome wheels. When it was washed up, it looked great. The handling and performance were pretty good too, considering this was a pickup. It had more than enough torque to get off the line, and you could fly through the corners. Although Dodge trucks are notorious for having problems, this truck never had any significant problems. It always ran great. This truck also had a well designed interior. The big ass cup holders in the front were nice and would accommodate the biggest of drinks.

    Pros: Great looks, good handling, good build quality

    Cons: None!

    My Uncle Owned. It Was Going To Be Mine But It Got Totaled. — Very reliable truck considering the work it did. Lasted the hard work on a spread out farm pretty good. Was going on 250,000 miles before wreck. The wreck was not the pickup's fault. Interior didn't have problem with taking a beating. This truck was awesome. I hope to get one soon.

    Pros: Best truck I have ever driven and I have driven quite a few trucks.

    Cons: Tranny didn't last after the first 6 years of hard farm work and high speed driving. Wasn't very good in the mud cuz the 4X4 didn't always work.

    Big Slow Fun. — This is my 98 sport 4x4. Its loaded with leather, and has the 5.2 with manual transmission. Very reliable truck, just a little slow and hard on fuel. But you have to pay to play, right?

    Pros: Toughest drivetrain out there, looks great

    Cons: Hard on fuel, spend too much money on accessories.

    It Wasn't So Bad — I drove this truck for work for several months, loaded it with dirt mud sticks cement, it survived, towed a light trailer, etc.

    Pros: 4 low got you unstuck, always, other than that pretty basic truck

    Cons: Not a comfortable truck on the highway

    Dodge Went Right Out The Window! — I previously owned a Dodge pickup truck for about 5 years. It was a strong running vehicle that transmission and paint problems. Even with regular maintenance and scheduled tune-ups she was falling apart fast. I did, however, really enjoy driving up north (to Flagstaff, Arizona) and going off-road. My son and I would do this about once a month without many issues. The truck had plenty of room with 4 doors and a full back-seat. The styling was nicely rounded and the ride was very smooth on most surfaces. The interior details were all plastic and seemed to wear out rather quickly. I had it into the mechanic a dozen times for a transmission leak that nobody could find. It ended getting stolen right out of my driveway. Several days later it was found ... totalled. Good riddens!

    Owner for 5 years, 6 months

    Miles Driven per Year:12,500

    Pros: Plenty of room.  Nice ride on and off road.  Strong motor.

    Cons: Poor workmanship!  Less than quality materials.  Vehicle didn't hold its value.
