"I bought this truck used with 33,000 miles already on it. The previous owner took excellent care of it and it was in perfect working order when I bought it. I love this truck. It is a challenge to drive because of its length and it is best if you back into every parking spot. I drive heavy equipment for a living so this is no big deal for me. Long trips are excellent in this truck with the added leg room in the back and big bed for storage. It is considered a "heavy half" and can tow more than the average half ton truck.
Truck has excellent turning radius.
Plenty of leg room in front and back.
Back seats recline and have crazy storage space.
Fun to drive.
Sports car steering. (on hand or one finger to turn)
Can tow lots of weight and with ease.
Few blind spots.
Lots of power.
Big fuel tank.
Cold A/C and Hot Heat.
Good sound system.
Can see great at night.
Easy to keep clean.
Lots of cup holders.
My transmission went out at 55000 miles.
Chased Fuel Evap leak for months.
Chased A/C leak for months.
Takes forever to cool down interior due to cubic air space.
Tires are expensive.
Medium Fuel mileage (average about 15mpg).
Not meant for parking garages."
Cons: "Rough ride, gas mileage (as with any pickup)"

"I had this truck for 2.5 years and I have put on over 30k. I did all maintenance myself and it didn't need much. Replaced a ball joint at 90k, but that's the only real repair I've done. Mine has the 5.7L Hemi and it's more power than you will likely need from a 1/2 ton pickup. The throttle is a little slow to respond from dead stop, but the addition of a programmer really wakes these trucks up and turns them into an even more white-knuckle ride if you have a lead foot. The ride in them is a little rough and living in small towns with very rough roads, it is noticeable, keep good shocks under it and it helps a lot. The A pillar is somewhat hard to see around at times, there's a little bit of a blind spot, but that's the same with any vehicle I've been in from recent years. Overall opinion, love it and would buy again given the opportunity!"
"bought this vehilce as a retirment gift to myself to pull my boat. I still love driving it becuase of the power and the quiet smooth ride. i have had NO problems with the truck since i bought it 4 yrs ago (knock on wood) We drive the truck everywhere we go and my wife loves riding in it. I recomend this truck to anyone who is interested in a powerfull well built vehicle."
