    Dodge — Hands down the best truck I've owned to date. Get tired of shifting but the Cummins engine has more power than I need. Plan on putting a programmer and more go fast stuff soon, but working on getting it looking good right now. Looks good rollin' on dubs! Turns heads everywhere it goes. Looks good, sounds good with the 6" exhaust, and smokes out the bikers and convertibles at the touch of the throttle. What more fun do you need.

    Pros: Rides good, plenty of power, very simple.

    Cons: Not enough room in extended cab.  Need to upgrade to a crew cab.

    Needs A Lot Of Preventative Maintenance. — Although Dodge changed the 2002 Ram 1500 body style, the 2500 and the 3500 remained the older body style. The lines are clean and smooth. The truck has great stock suspension and the 2500 sits at a stock clearance of 6'10". Its nice and heavy, great in the snow or mud. At 70,000 miles, my truck has had almost the entire front end replaced. It seems as though Dodge tie-rods and upper and lower ball joints are not as durable as the rest of the front components. The steering also continually pulls to the left after several alignments and brake work...nothing seems to correct this. However, my cousin has a 2002 Ram 3500 which seems to do the same thing. I would recommend this truck to friends IF they have had some past experience with trucks and do not mind doing maintenance on thier own. It has had a few problems, but when it runs, it runs well. If you cant Dodge it, Ram it.

    Pros: Power, Heavy, Its a Truck That Rides Like a Truck, Suspension

    Cons: Tie-Rods, Front Upper & Lower Ball Joints, Steering

    360xxx Km's And Still Running. Diesel Auto,4x4 — It runs. Steers like crap. Cheap on fuel for being a tank. Hasn't broke down yet...

    Pros: Power and fuel economy.

    Cons: Ball joints,trac bar, and steering box wear out fast. Rides like a truck.
