Ramjam Couldn't Put It Any Petter — the truck is a great piece of machine, the engine is super strong and the style of the truck is just breath taking.. The look is like a normal older dodge with a mean look to it. the style just rolls nothing about the truck makes you confused or something that just shouldn't be there.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: its a great truck. its the best thing i ever bought besides my harley, they style of it and the power it gives is just unbelievable

Cons: i bought the truck about a month and a half and it goes fantastic for a while then something happens were i need to take it to the garage again.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great power and reliability

Cons: none

My Bart — I bought this in 2005 for a business that never took off and my old job never went away, so I was happy. I always had people complement on the looks of the truck...and it was very sharp. I'll actually miss it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sharp looking truck that was always ready.

Cons: Expensive to operate these days...15-16MPG mixed

Great Truck — Easy to work on, reliable, tough body, and fun to drive. However, the HEMI seems underpowered compared to today's models. ABS was apparently optional for the truck also. As a result this handled poorly on icy roads so I traded it in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Durable, reliable, overall great truck to own

Cons: 4wd system is not as capable as newer models, disliked lack of ABS, HEMI has improved since then

Dodge Ram Long Horn Edition — This truck was great for hauling furniture and had a good V8 engine, however the fuel consumption was not where I wanted it to be. The rear cab is ok for toddlers but a little cramped with a newborn. I did enjoy the truck but would have preferred the HEMI with sport package.

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

Pros: Great transmission and amazing engine response

Cons: HEMI is preferred, gas mileage could be better

Reliable, Powerful, And Gets The Job Done. — Had this truck for a few years now and it had never left me on the side of the road. Replaced the alternator due to a bad bearing and the drive belt while I had it off. Other than that this truck has been extremely reliable, starts every time, and fun to drive.

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

Pros: Very reliable truck, fast and powerful and with a sunroof!

Cons: gas mileage isn't anything to get excited about.
