    Dakota Musings — The usual sloppy North American electrical work, not very good milage and poor brakes. It does get around the back country with high clearance and can haul a tonne of gear. Comfortable for long drives. Oil Filler & PC Valve System doe not work well @ -40 C in Saskatoon!

    Pros: Clearance

    Cons: Milage & cold weather operation

    Dodge Truck — it has amazing acceleration and a powerfull motor and it is not bad at anything. It is a ton of fun to drive without the bed cap. It is also not that expensive. The gas mileage is really pretty good. with accelerating into big numbers. In the summer it is a blast.

    Pros: acceleration

    Cons: nothing

    My Truck — beautifull clean interior 3.9 litre v8 2wd off road tires and aluminum rims bedliner drives awesome, for a small v8 it has a lot of kick to it. I can usually get 365 kilometers on a 65 litre tank of gas the best vehicle i have ever driven before an overall great truck

    Pros: gets pretty good gas milage cossidering the size of the engine

    Cons: not enough weight in the back so the tires spin very easily

    Great (not So Little) Truck — Performance -- Little Sluggish, Have manual trans and i need to break down and put in a new clutch. All torque. Build Quality -- Built right, easy to maintain, havent really had a problem with it, and that's with 130,000 miles on it. Does have crappy milage on it, i was getting 12.5 mpg on it, but i just recently checked the tires and was alarmed that they were 10 pounds under pressure! I'm the 2nd owner of the beastie and so far i am very happy with it. This sucker will haul anything, and that's with a V6! 4x4 also works well.

    Pros: Does everything it's told to do

    Cons: With a V6, gas should be better, and doesnt accelerate as fast i would like it to. still jumps from a stop light fast, i just need to work on my shifting

    My Dodge — I like the fact that it has a manual trans. And the bulletproof drivetrain!! It is awesome in the bush. it has a very good ride on the highway and in the city. reasonable gas mileage. It is red in colour and has big mud tires on it.It also has dragon seat covers and steringwheel cover.

    Pros: DODGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons: Chevy Sucks..............

    Title Is Good — Performance- Accelereation is amazing, and once you kill the governor, your speed seems almost limitless. You will crap your pants before you top out. Build- The only problem with this vehicle is that the A/C leaks but its and easy fix. It is only a drain blockage. Appearance- Interior is rather nice, and the exterior, I love this model a lot more than the new model that just came out. Cost- Gas mileage can be decent as long as you dont mat it. If i go easy on it, on the high way I get 23 to 25 MPG FunFactor- I LOVE driving this truck.

    Pros: It is awsome and fun to drive.

    Cons: When i gun the throttle my gas mileage SUCKS
