"This truck was purchased on good Friday 2007. I have never hauled anything with it,nor has it seen bad weather. Since I have become owner of this vehicle it has spent it's entire life in a heated, and cooled environment. As my garage is built better than my 50 year old house.No rain, or snow has come in contact with this truck. I am retired,and because I don't need it I am offering it for sale. If you are looking to buy a Dodge Ram 1500 SLT with Thunder Road Package, and the engine is as clean on the inside as on the outside.Mobile 5w-30 Synthetic every 5000 miles. You will not find a nicer one out there with this low of millage only 29499 miles. That' only 3277 miles a year."

Pros: "great $/m, great towing, durable, reliable"

Cons: "parts are more expensive"

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

"It has plenty of torque with minor upgrades. Get an upgraded air intake, a good one. It will greatly increase your mileage and power. When keeping up with the fluids and all it is very reliable. Heck when hurting a lot it still ran. I got mine after someone destroyed the engine, but it still ran. Now the engine is rebuilt and it is unbelievable how much torque she has. Parts are more expensive but they last longer. so $ per mile in fuel and parts is probably about the same. But a properly taken care of and maintained truck with a cummins engine should last till 1 million miles. The 5.9L cummins is nicknamed "the million mile motor" because it can make it there, usually without needing a rebuild along the way. Ideal RPM's is at 1600, found that out. I am able to get 30 mpg at that RPM with stock diameter tires and an upgraded air intake (I own the K&N upgrade but there are ones that are supposed to be better). Also I would buy stuff that was high quality, yes more money upfront in most cases but it meant it lasted a lot longer than good quality. so to sum up: -get good parts -keep up on fluids -keep up on maintenance -$ per mile in fuel is cheaper, especially for the towing -$ per mile in parts is cheaper -reliable -treat it right and could hit 1 million miles"

Pros: "rides like a big sedan, reliable"

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

"Purchased from local dodge dealer in 2008 and second owner. Had 40k miles. Now has 200K. Over the past 7 years the only thing I've had to do is replace the alternator and a/c cooling fan. Still has origional battery and belts and hoses! The 318 CI (4.7 lt)engine is one of the most reliable of any manufacturer. When they say ram tough, they mean it!"

"In April of 2014 while on a business trip in CA, I blew a head gasket.After an inspection by local Dodge dealer, heat damage was so severe, entire engine needed to be replaced. New engine obtained from Chrysler and installed by Dodge dealer at a cost of $7.5K. Truck runs now better than it did when purchased in 2004, better MPG's too. Also steering column replaced due to excessive play. Larry"
