I Wouldn't Own Anything Else Expect A Bigger Ram — This truck over all is a 100% need for anyone who loves trucks likes power and the ability to tow or haul or go anywhere but if you are a Eco freak or worry about gas mileage this truck is not for you

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Loads of power plenty of room best looking truck on the market

Cons: It's a dodge so naturally had mileage and eventually the dash is gonna crack

Love My Truck — good acceleration, decent handling (it is a truck), great at stopping no repairs needed so far the gas can be a hefty cost but so far low on maintenance cost for a truck its not bad to drive though its mostly stock (for now anyways)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its a truck

Cons: gas mileage

Love My 2008 Ram — Dodge makes a great pickup. Of course I'm a Mopar fan. I would recommend a Dodge to anyone, having been in Ford's and Chevy's too. I still like the function and look of the Dodge the best. Quality is not the same as 25-30 years ago. Much better!

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

Pros: Great power. Comfortable ride.

Cons: Gas Mileage - but it's what you should expect from a 360hp V-8 in a pickup.

It's Decent For A Dodge - Ha! — Pretty good truck overall. This one did not have power windows or locks. Decent power & performance. We had to put new O2 sensors and cat converters in order to pass Calif smog. Other than that, the truck was great. Looks sharp also.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of room and an economical purchase price.

Cons: Catalytic converters went bad.  Fuel mileage is not impressive.

Love My Baby, But She Is Sick Right Now. — I like the size, power and ablility to use it for yard work ect. I have about 92,000 right now and recently have had an issue. The truck is sluggish when going from a start and when i am on the freeway, it will get up to speed but slowly and I have to really floor it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Powerful when functioning properlyh

Cons: Not the best gas milage as its getting higher in milage. Used to be the best with all the trucks I have driven.

'08 Ram 1500 Slt Hemi — This truck handles well... for a truck. It's got loads of power with the 5.7L HEMI, and with the multi displacement engine system, the gas mileage on the highway is a lot easier to take (17-20 mpg) than around town (9-10 mpg). There are quite a few squeaks and rattles developing and it definitely doesn't ride like a luxury sedan, but it is a truck, and looks and acts every bit the part. I have put almost 90,000 km on this vehicle and so far, other than regular oil changes, I've only had to change the tie rod ends.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Loads of power.  4X4 with 20" rims gives lots of ground clearance and offroading is a breeze.

Cons: Gas mileage.  Wind noise on highway.

It Looks Grate For Men Who Likes A Good Time On Weels — its a grate truck and had a few adjustments to it. it will get you where you need to go and will turn heads like no other trucks will. i have more upgrades and will be even better when going out to have a good time in the mud

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

Pros: it wont get stuk

Cons: gas

Excellent Truck — Build qual. is very good! I have added a few engine "tweeks" and it really "scoots"! Gas mileage is around 18 to 19 on the highway, and drops to ~14-15 mpg overall with mostly around town driving. Of course, one must not be tempted to "put your foot in it" as the mileage quickly goes south if done. Ride quality is as good as many sedans if not better. Nice to be up higher for a better view of the road. This is my second Dodge truck and I would definitly buy another one.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks, performance, value, features, comfort all top notch

Cons: Trans noises when shifting into reverse--Dodge says it is just the servos and there are no problems-----we'll see
