"I have had this truck about 6 months now and it is probably the best truck I have ever owned. The interior is well designed with very easy to reach buttons and controls. The stereo sounds decent enough for a factory stereo. I swapped mine out within the first month for some premium Kenwood 6x9s which fit easily in all four of the doors. The headlights are very clear and bright at night. I got the TRX4 Offroad package which beefs up the suspension. The Hemi screams with dual exhaust! You MUST get dual exhaust with a Hemi. Do yourself a favor! The cloth seats clean up really well when I take my dogs to the vet and give them the fur treatment. The only distant complaint that I can give is that the factory Goodyear tires are garbage. Dry pavement driving is okay but once you hit the wet roads/ice the Limited Slip Differential gets a little use. I would prefer that only happen in an emergency. I have had several trucks rely on the Limited Slip and while it maintains great control over the vehicle, the tires were a factor. This is not the fault of Chrysler/Dodge, as they manufacture trucks not tires. With a decent set of Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos on the truck, that was instantly all cleared up. Now I'm happy as can be. The ride is absolutely luxury-class, even when towing. I tow a two-motorcycle trailer with generator, tool box, and race fuel tank so I don't put much of the towing capacity to the test but with about 2500+ pounds on the back it doesn't even feel like anything is back there. I listened to the MyGig stereo with the 9 speaker array and for an entry level stereo as I would consider it, its just not worth the price tag. You can install your own navigation system, speakers, and sub for a fraction of what Dodge asks for. Plus, who really needs a hard drive in their stereo when so many of us have SD cards, MP3 players, and USB drives? Pass on the premium stereo, you can prolly do better Walmart speakers using basic hand tools and some patience. Crutchfield is of course my preferred method. Gas mileage averages about 17 MPG with 50% Highway driving and 50% City driving. I have seen as high as 19 MPG with all interstate driving for about 200 Miles. Truck cleans up real well and has many nice touches like the Dodge Ram logos strategically placed all over the truck like on the running boards and into the Dash. Even the center console got a nice logo with an upgraded package. True, Chevy gets better mileage but only cranks out 315 HP stock. The 09 Ram cranks out 390 HP stock. The truck accelerates into traffic VERY quickly and you can really notice the comfort of the ride when making turns and going over potholes. Bottom line: GET THIS TRUCK! IT DOESN'T DISAPPOINT!!"
"After having this ram quad cab for 6 months i have no complaints. i am getting anywhere from 16 to 20 MPG and thats with the 5.7 Liter HEMI, which has more torque and overall power than any truck i have ever owned. The interior is great no problems. This truck is a head turner when i drive down the street, and thats on looks, not any exhaust. overall this is the best truck i have ever owned. i recommend it to anybody, whether you will be using it as a work-truck or an every day driver"
"I can't say enough good things about my 2009 Crew Cab Laramie 4x4. I've had the truck 8 months now and have put on over 20,000kms. I love the fact the truck drives and rides like a dream. It's like a moving entertainment system and Dodge has all the right options. This is a very well thought out truck and will force the likes of Ford, Chevy, Toyota & Nissan to raise their game."
"I've owned this truck for 3 mos. now and I have nothing but good things to say. Great riding, LOTS of power, and great room with the Crew Cab. Just today I pulled a 4000 pound air compressor through the mud and this truck did not hesitate.This is the best truck i've ever owned."
"GOING FROM MID SIZE TRUCK TO A LARGE RAM TAKES A LITTLE ADJUSTMENT BUT IN THE END I'M GETTING NEARLY THE SAME FUEL MILEAGE AS I WAS WITH MY 6 CYLINDER AND THE RIDE IS SO MUCH BETTER. THERE IS A 'WHOMP-WHOMP' AIR NOISE IF YOU LOWER A REAR PASSENGER WINDOW TOO LOW BUT OTHER THAN THAT WE ENJOY THIS TRUCK VERY MUCH. THIS IS FROM A LOYAL FORD OWNER - GO FIGURE......"
"All my friends own fords and chevy's and they have nothing but good things to say about my 2009 Ram 1500. After a few have driven it they love that truck and that makes me very happy about my decision to buy my Dodge."
"I love it! I drive 1000 highway miles per week and I have no complaints. The truck drives great, handles well on and off road, and in the rain (haven't had it in snow yet). I'm ranging over 600 miles on a tank of gas = 15 - 18 around town, 18 - 20 hwy (not bad for a full size pick-up). "Got a Hemi", and it kicks in when I need it to. Not a lot of them out there (ok by me, bad for Chrysler) so I'm still getting a ton of looks when I drive by. I can't think of any negatives, except for the stone chip by the drivers door and I wish I got the sliding rear window and the built in storage bins in the bed. I've had GM and Fords (love my F250) and test drove them all (distance driving too) and this really is the best truck out there at the moment. The $14 discount wasn't too shabby either. Strong recommendation."
