"One time owner, it has overdrive & positive traction along with cruise control. 10 ply tires and equipped with electrical towing control. Bed has full rubber mat with the liner & tailgate protector. camper shell is higher than normal with raised aft ceiling makes loading ATV from ramp no problem. Shell also has Sliding front & side windows. Vehicle has always performed great in 4 W/D and that is in 4 High. Have never had to use 4 Low to get out of a situation. Operating in snow & ice has been outstanding. This is based on flatland and mountainous terrain."

Very good solid truck.

"The truck has served me well and I will likely keep it. My highway fuel mileage even with the 4:11 gears is 22 MPG. The Bosch VP44 and Lift Pump are the weak link in this model year. I had to replace the VP44 once and the Lift Pump at least 4x. Otherwise, no major repair bills that one would not encounter with another make of this age, i.e. batteries, shocks, etc."

Good truck, but needs work

"Bought the truck in 2005 with 67,000 miles. It now has 89,274 miles. It was not a work, personal use only. It has a sprayed on bed liner, aluminum diamond plate bed trim. It is a 8,800 lb. GVW truck, but lowered to 7,000 lb. on reg. card. That saves 40 plus dollars a year in reg. fees. Inspection good to 10/14. Bad side, needs some body work, and the tranny needs work, fluid came out the inspection cover. Could be torque converter or front seal. That work is more than I want to tackle. Still a good truck."

Pros: "I think it was a fair price,& fun to drive!"

Cons: "The 360 is thirsty, yet powerful."

"Gas was $1.29/gal when I bought my RAM in October of 2000. It has been an excellent truck other than the MPG's. i would surely buy another RAM, but would do an actual MPG test prior to purchase(not that I don't trust their sticker lol!). The truck held up well to the harsh winters and has always been able to get me home. Any mechanical issues have been resolved without the use of a tow truck. It has never seen a hook, and that's not bad for a 13 1/2 year old vehicle."
