Pros: "Roomy interior."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"Owned this vehicle since new. Have had to replace both front and rear bumpers due to rust. Transmissions been slipping for 20000 miles, air just quit working. The 5.2 liter isn't nearly enough power for a truck this size. I have babied this thing since I bought it and lots of upkeep. Rusting like mad no matter I wax it every single year. I have a Toyota highlander with 126,000 miles and not one problem."

"I bot this truck in Casper Wyoming, for work. I have grown to love this truck, because it is a Dodge and a diesel, there are not to many trucks like this one. I moved to Tnn. in this truck and haven't had any major problems until recent. I just don't have the time or money to fix it, and I really need somethig bigger."

Pros: "Great for hauling."

Cons: "Fuel pumps, filters and slow starting. Bad paint."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"This beast can haul about anything. Paint fades easily, dash board cracks, just like all these Dodge trucks. Multiple problems with fuel pumps and filters, slow start, doesn't start well in cold weather and the steering wheel is offset. I've had two of them, and both of them have had these problems. Great for hauling and pulling though."

before the black rims

"this truck is my baby its got all highway miles just drove it to work and back but it comes with a k&n cold air intake, full exhaust system and headers with a split tail, two package brand new radiator,tranny cooler most of these dodges don't have them, brand new tranny, and heavy duty torque converter, governor pressure sensor, tranny has been treated like a baby because these dodges are notorious for bad trannies but this one is as solid as it gets you will never have a problem, i put a 2 inch lift kit on it with 32x10.5 wide dean mud terrain tires expensive on black 16 in daytona rims its the dark pearl green with dark tinted window black grill and bumper. sub woofer hook up 600 watt amp included just plug in your cubs and it will bump. i also replaced the plugs 3 times a year, replaced the cam shaft and crank shaft sensors along with a few more sensors it was just getting to that point where parts needed to be changed out it got a lifetime warranty on the new water pump , brand new battery and terminals oil was changed every 4 to 5 thousand miles because i always used royal purple on and the truck is chipped i have the programmer so you can set it to your likings, but i set it to pretty much the best way possible, its never been smoked in im very very precise about that, im about to throw on some new front and rear fox shocks with piggy back reservoirs, this truck is cherry and very well maintained very reliable and its got some power. you wont be disappointed in this truck. will trade for and cummins or chevy 1500 or duramax"
