2005 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty — The Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 with teh 5.9 Cummins Turbo Diesel is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. The Performance with the diesel is the best from the big three car companies. Plus the cummins is the only true medium duty diesel engine availble. In my current vehicle I am getting about 18.6mpg City driving and 21.5 highway mpg. All this with the diesel and 4:10 gears. Cruising at 60 mpg is around 1800 rpms. Not bad for a 2500.

Pros: its mine now

Cons: waited to long to get one.

2005 Dodge 2500 Slt Cummins Diesel — This is probably the best truck we've had so far. It has great pulling power and can haul anything we have. It costed 40,000 dollars so we're still paying it off. It is very fun to drive because of the feel when you hear the turbo wind up. It is very fun to drive.

Pros: great leg room, plenty power, great seating,turbo

Cons: nothing

Solid Work Horse — - The Cummins is a brute built for work. It tows my trailer without issue. The engine is smooth, the NV5600 transmission is ok - 3rd gear synchro is very notchy and the box shifts slowly. The brakes are acceptable, but a truck of this weight and pulling power really should have larger front rotors with larger pads and 4 or 6 piston calipers to improve brake performance and pedal feel. This may very well be upgraded soon. - The build quality is above expection of a Chrysler product that was assembled in Mexico. There are some small issues that are design issues more than assembly related. - Appearance is solid. - cost of ownership has been very good. regular maintenance is easy to perform. fuel ecomomy has deteriorated since ultra low sulfer diesel was introduced - lost 2.5 mpg - but thank god its is cleaner (ignoring that its burning more now - once again the morons of the EPA have won this one...) -Overall, this is a solid work horse. The biggest issue that will be resolved shortly is improving the engine's efficiency with this new ultra low sulfer diesel fuel.

Pros: Strong Performance

Cons: Ultra Low Sulfer Diesel is ruining this fine performer

Big Giant Vs. Mighty Mom! — Actually, this is my husband's truck...he doesn't like it nowadays because of the gas prices, but he needs it because he works in construction...Nowadays, when he's home, he winds up driving my Ford Taurus X...can you imagine? I tell him...go find the keys. The other bad thing about big trucks nowadays is that they eat too much gas. But, I guess if you need it for work, you need it for work. I would only recommend it if you absolutely needed it.

Pros: Workaholic Truck

Cons: Eats too much!!!

It Is A Great, Hard-working Truck That Can Go Anywhere! And I Mean Anywhere... — It is huge. For example it comes with 33 inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires and a factory 3 inch lift. It has a 12,000 lb. winch that can pull anything you come across... even the 8,510 lb. beast that it is attached to. By the way, another great fact is that it technically weighs 8,510 lbs. therefore, it does not need to have emissions tests because it weighs 10 lbs. over the limit... i'm pretty sure they did that on purpose. which, again, is great. Also it comes with unlockable sway bars and fender flares. It almost has better off-roading capabilities than any other truck on the market and it is not far behind Jeeps. Its approach angle, departure angle, axle clearance, and ramp breakover angle are better than any other truck on the market and are not very far behind the Jeep Wranglers.

Pros: huge. great off-roading capabilities. very comfortable

Cons: bad gas mileage, only 12 mpg. but thats the only con.

Perfect — I love everything except one thing, I had a recall done on it and if you drive with the door open in reverse the alarm goes off. the power is there, the look is there. I can hook up to a 16,00lb trailer tow it to the mountain unhook, and Drag the truck all day long. it does everything.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: practicallity

Cons: you'll fall in love with it
