"This truck is great as long as you dont need to do heavy work which is not what this truck was designed for. i DO NOT like dodge and i have always said that i will never own one. well now i do and i am surprised with how much that i like it. i have the v6 but it still has a lot of power. ive towed over 13000 pounds with no problem and that is a lot more than it is rated to tow. i wouldnt recommend doing this because i was fishtailing and my back end was REALLY low. i have the manual transmission which is a blast to drive and all you have to do is drop it into 3rd and it is like a bullet, which is helpful when you need to pass. this truck has amazing handling, i drive it like its a sports car and have never had any problems. the two things that i dont like about this truck is that it does not have an option for a longer bed and that the interior seems kind of cheap. i only get 14 mpg in the city which is sad because it is a 3.7 liter engine. that might be because of my led foot but im going to ignore that and say that this truck could get better mpg. i grew up on a farm and we had a lot of different trucks, most of them were 1 ton diesels, that we put to the test, although this truck cant compete with something like that it does good at what it was designed to do, be a mid size, medium use truck. overall this is a good truck for someone that lives in the city who doesnt need a monster of a truck but if your like me and your from the country and you need a truck that you can go get hay with of put a trailer on to tow the tractor around get yourself the best truck out there, a 1 ton ford powerstroke."
"I bought this truck new from the dealer in 06 as a lost leader sale. TIP: lost leader sales are great for buying new cars, they are usually several thousand less than the listed price. A "lost leader" is a vehicle that the dealer has had on the lot for a considerable leghnth of time and needs to sell to make room for new stock. Anyways this truck has rolled over everything ive thrown at it. Even though its only a 2 wheel drive i have never gotten it stuck when out offroad, and hve actually pulled quite a few people out with tow chains. I work constuction so ive loaded the bed with all manner of debre and materials, the heaviest most likely being 3\4 yards of gravel, approx 2000 pounds. Along with the ability to haul heavy loads this truck gets, up, and moves. ive personally tacked it out to 125 mph. But thats when the governer kicked in at 4000rpm in 5th gear. Without the governer i have no doubt this truck, stock, would push 140 mph. All in all i dont really have any problems or concerns save one for potential buyers. THERE WAS A RECAL ON THE TRANSMISION OF THIS YEAR AND MAKE OF TRUCK. BE SURE IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT BUYING ONE THAT THIS PROBLEM WAS ADRESSED."
"I just put 6600 miles on this truck with a fourteen foot fully loaded enclosed trailor for the last 3600 miles. The load was not balanced and most was carried on the ballhitch. i drove from NC thru Ga,Al, Miss, La,Ak, Mo,Ka, Neb, Wy,Ut,Id,Or,into Wa. No problems all the way except for the cross winds in the rivergorge in Or. This was over 11day trip."
"RIDE IS BEST I'VE HAD IN ANY OTHER TRUCK I OWNED,INTERIOR SET UP GREAT,POWER AND DRIVIBILTY IS EXCEPTIONAL, GOOD GAS MILAGE FOR A V8 Only downfall front door posts are to wide, blocks veiw when making left turns."
