    I Enjoy It — I hate the trans (I loved my manual), but overall, its been a really good truck. Hauls my family and dog all over the place. Wish I had a large enough garage to fit it into! It's a good truck.

    Pros: Love the motor, and cargo space

    Cons: Lack of fuel mileage compared to my diesel

    Very Strong And Dependable 4wd Truck! — I love my dodge. It has lasted a long time and has held up through it all. It is a bit on the heavy side but that makes it good for hauling/pulling. I've moved 3 times and having this truck came in handy.

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

    Pros: Spacious interior with lots of power from the engine.  Very good at hauling just about anything.

    Cons: Gets horrible gas millage unless on the highway or the tank is full.

    You Can Go Fast, I Can Go Anywhere! — Add 35" tires and with no other changes this truck can be driven anywhere. The many options of the power wagon package make it the off road powerhouse it is. Winch, skid plates, lockers, 4.56 gears, real transfer case and still very reliable grocery geter soccer mom or dad truck.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The power wagon is (was) the ultimate off road machine.

    Cons: Gas

    2005 Ram 2500 Laramie — I bought this truck to haul horses, and boy does it haul! Smooth and strong over mountain passes with 28' goose neck trailer with up to 4 horses. It has also been my main transportation around town which is not so practical; kinda hard to park. But a beautiful truck that I have loved to own.

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

    Pros: Power, Torque and peppy pickup. Very clean, great body.

    Cons: I have to sell it...arg!

    My Truck — 148000, and stiil going strong! This truck has done it all so far and just keeps on chuggin. I have loaded it pretty well, both the bed and trailer. hauled construction equipment, and people. long and short trips, and off road. it needs some lockers on it preferrably front and rear, something has to help get all that power to the ground.At 148000 it does need some repair, it is almost done with its second set of tires, and second set of brakes, and second water pump, and some u-joints, other than that just oil changes. I get about 20MPG . overall the truck has been a great driver, it does most things well.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power

    Cons: No locking diff

    Pros: its big and rides like a cadillac

    Cons: its big
