It Is An Ok Truck, I Should Have Bought A Chev. — This is my second dodge, and like the first some it has little issues. it seems at 100k miles all heck has broke out. What really did it is when I took it to the dealer, and a sales guy tried to talke me into trading it in because of some mech., problems. I told him if I had to get rid of a well maintained truck at only 100K, I would not buy another Dodge.

I Own A Truck For A Reason And Would Not Go Without A Truck. — It is a great truck. There is lots of cabin space and storage. I like the fact that it seems to sit higher that most other stock trucks. This truck has done to I have asked it to do, from highway driving to mudslinging. The only down fall of this vehicle is the gas mileage. Like I said before, I will never go without a truck.

Great Big Truck Perfect For Plowing, Landscapers, Towing! — Nice looking silver truck. Interior was very comfortable and all the power options worked great. Gas mileage was low but maintenance was very good with no problems to speak of. Ran very smoothly and it could tow and plow easily. It was a safe and easy to drive truck with very good handling. Very fun truck to drive espicially in the snow.

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

Pros: Great looking with no damage to exterior or interior.  Strong for towing, plowing, and moving big objects.

Cons: Low fuel economy.

I Would Buy Another One. — This is a really good truck. Coming from owning Fords, I was leery of a Dodge, but this truck has redeemed the Chrysler brand fore me. It never fails to start, it's very comfortable, and most importantly, the transmission has not blown up in it. I can't comment too much on reliability, as I bought the truck as a fixer, but since it has been fixed up, it has been perfect. You can tell the truck is well built where it counts, the doors shut with a very solid slam, and the truck doesn't rattle or squeak. However, Chrysler's choice of materials, most notably the dash top, was found wanting as the dash has cracked from exposure to sunlight. Fuel mileage on the open road is actually quite good for a pickup truck, typically getting 20-21 with the 4.7L engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This is a nice, roomy truck, with plenty of power, good reliability, and decent economy.

Cons: Some interior materials really suck.

It is a fun truck for the most part & giving the fact that it gets no where near the maintenance it is supposed to have and needs even more i would say she is a damn good truck. Honestly it should be blown up and leaving ny husband stranded long ago. But she just keeps on going..
