"I have had my Ram since 1997 and she's been a reliable girl ever since day one. I started with a base model truck and slowly customized it continually over the years. She has been reliable both in city driving and I can run mine at 50mph over open desert. That's with nothing more than a hotter than stock 360 in it and 35" tires and a 3" suspension lift. All the rest of the suspension is stock and you wouldn't think it would hold up to that kind of abuse but it has never show problems with the suspension. I have managed to damage her many times over the years but she still does what she need to do from hauling cargo to towing to just having a blast. If you have any further questions about how tough she is, mine was used by my teen aged son from 2011-2013 while he was in High School before he joined the Marines and you can imagine how tough that was on her. In fact he even admitted to me that he had her above 100mph once going downhill in the mountains... and this is with that lift and those big 35" desert meat tires. If you find one that's not already beat to death it's totally a truck worth having for a little work or fun."
Cons: "Bad steering components. Can be fixed tho."

"I bought this truck from the original owner at 185000 miles. I've had to replace most all of the steering parts as that is a known problem area with these trucks. Other than that this has been a very reliable truck. I tow a 12k lb fifth wheel with it and it pulls it with very little trouble over mountain passes. Overall it's a great truck for what it was intended for. Towing and hauling loads."
