    1 — dodge doesn't stand up to their warranties. my computer on the truck is screwing up. and they are not wanting to fix it. but other than that it's a great truck great handling and great performance but it's not good on gas though

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: overall it's good looking truck and performs well

    Cons: the front suspension could be better built instead of using alluminum

    The Greatest Full Size Truck I Have Driven. — This truck is fast and will last you through anything you put it through. The 4.7l V8 is very powerful and has very nice and clean rumble and road sound. I love the way the truck will respond in the turns. I would really suggest this truck to anyone who is thinking about traveling with a family. I will in a year travel with my friends to south carolina.

    Pros: Engine is ver powerful, spacious, very pretty, comfortable

    Cons: Fuel ecomony, slip in take off

    Dodge Ram Till Death! — Absolutly amazing truck, this thing has taken me everywhere from the bush roads to downtown, I couldn't live without her 4 wheel drive in the winter! This truck hadles like a sports car on a twisty windy road in the alps! couldn't ask for atruck with better handling...And the sheer statment that the tractor tralier style front end makes is just breath taking to most people...

    Pros: Size, spaciousness, ground clearance, handling

    Cons: Gas mileage could use a little improving, but its is a full size pickup eh...!

    '03 Ram Good Truck — Hell yeah it's got a HEMI I'm a truck guy I love pulling trailers and passing people at the same time Never been stuck and love beating the heck out of a good truck wish I had 50k to lay out for a new Ram with all the goodies.

    Pros: Excellent towing capabilities and good payload enough HP and torque for a truck guy the 5 spd. auto beats the hell out of their old 4 spds.

    Cons: It's not brand new anymore

    Ain't No Substitute For Cubes! — What's not to like, 345bhp, 6 seats, comfy, sounds awesome, carries the camping gear. Not the fastest thing on 4 wheels but faster than 3 tons should be. Fuel economy? Yeah right. Better than a Shogun! There is no replacement for displacement! Best thing i've ever bought, aiming to keep it till it's a classic.

    Pros: Hemi power,noise and internal space, Not a chuckle bus! Safe as houses,Road tax (hehehe)

    Cons: 16mpg? Not running on LPG yet

    2003 Dodge Ram 1500 — The Dodge Ram 1500 is a very tough truck! Its frame is extremely strong and can handle most anything you throw at it. Yes it is a fully boxed in frame. The Ram's appearance is also very good looking (especially the sport package Ram with the painted grill). The massive grill makes it look like a beast and makes you not wanna get into a wreck with this machine. the interior is of fair quality. It could be better, its just a little plain but nothing too boring. Performance wise it gets a 4/5. The reason why the vehicle gets that rating is solely because very few people realize how heavy the Ram 1500 actually is. The Ram weighs in at a whopping 6650 LBS!!! For those of you who don't know.... THAT IS MASSIVE. most diesel trucks will weigh about that much. It makes for a slower acceleration, but the HEMI engine helps make up for the slower acceleration since it is quite the powerful motor (and personally my favorite). The brakes of the Ram are quite powerful and really make for fast stopping. the Ram comes with standard four piston brakes. The trucks handling is so so. Once again the handling isn't all it can be due to the weight of the truck. The weight really takes away from the alot of the performance factors. Next on the list is cost of ownership. The Ram really isn't as bad on gas as you might think. Most people get worried when they hear MPG and HEMI in the same sentence. With the HEMI engine I've experienced about 15.5 MPG. But this is only due to a $350 Volant CAI I invested in. Without it you should expect between 11-14 MPG and that can be quite terrifying at the gas pump. Lasty, the truck is somewhat fun to drive, especially if you are wanting to go off road or run something over.

    Pros: Appearance, brakes, strong frame, MPG isn't as bad as most think, strong motor, HEMI

    Cons: interior, MPG can be a pain, handling isn't too great, worst of all WEIGHT!

    Dodge Or Bust — My truck is awesome. It does anything I need it to do, street, off-road, towing. The truck runs great, has a lot of balls with the HEMI engine. Fuel economy could be a little better, but you can't expect miracles when driving a truck. The truck is just all out fun.

    Pros: Great for towing

    Cons: Low fuel economy

    The Red Rocket — This truck is fast as hell. Also durable and can be taken anywhere. With the 5.7 Hemi and 360 Horsepower this truck isnt messin around. Sleek tonneau cover and hood scoop add to the detail as well at 20 inch chrome wheels. Ive never lost a race so if you think you can beat it, step up!

    Pros: Fast, durable, very nice

    Cons: not a damn one...
