"I wasn't sure about Dodge back in '09 when I bought it used from a car auction. Absolutely loved it then and still do now. Very comf. lumbar seat, cloth, great music sound, lightly tinted windows, used it on the road for going to work and off the road to haul wood and to move the kids everywhere. The four-wheel drive is soooo easy. Just dial 4wheel or 2wheel and you're off. I have had no prob. with this truck except to replace the tie rods twice, both under warranty at 35K and again at 98K. Just general maintenance. Great truck"

"Bought new in April '03. Drive it like a car, mostly. I have pulled a gooseneck with a 20k load and it pulls it. You have to be heavy on the throttle and fuel economy drops to 3 m p g , but it gets there. I replaced a 93 K 3500 dually 4 x 4 with a 454 with this. Thought I'd go from 12 m p g to 15-16. Didn't do it. The hemi probably hangs in there with the 454. Only things I've done is change oil & filters regularly, plugs @ 65k, and had fender flares installed to cover the areas treated for rust. Very happy with everything but the fuel economy."
