"Bought new, after 25K miles of break in started getting 20 mpg, Super dependable and comfortable to drive. Use it as a commuter for business. Now at 150K miles I am getting 24 mpg highway and 16 city. Usually average 20 combined when I fill up. This is my best automotive investment ever. Only fault is that the back seats are not as comfortable as other trucks. Drove the others and this truck out handles them all. Upgrade to Bilstein shocks to fix the choppy ride and you've got a sport truck."
Cons: "Dash cracks. Must keep up with routine maintenance"

"This truck is virtually bulletproof and a true champion. However a few options are not listed. First being is side airbags. My vehicle magically has side airbags and is not listed. Second is the 3.92 rear end option provided in the sport package. Also not listed. Third is the limited slip option not listed and also not in the tech specs. Fourth is the sport package factory lowering kit. These options not being available will dramatically lower the value of the vehicle."
"This truck is so much fun to drive. I also have a ford lightning and it has a 4 speed automatic.The driving fun is hurt by the auto trans. Not in the ram though. The 6 speed manual lets you feel the power of the 505 ci v10 engine. Also the seats make you feel very secure when driving."
"I've owned this truck since 2004 when I was pregnant with my 2nd baby and we bought it used with about 30k on the odometer. We've been across country (east to west!) about 4 times with this old girl, she's never quit. We can even fit all 3 kids in the back seat with really no cramping. (who needs a minivan? haha) We used to haul a 14k 5th wheel 2-4 times a month no problem. We've just recently had to rebuild the trans in it for almost $5k but we've put a ton of miles on it! More torque/power than ford or Chevy. We have upgraded the front end steering which may finally resolve the constant ball joint change we had to keep doing on the passenger side. We do run a banks six gun package on it and she still likes to get up and play :) It's a bit more expensive to maintain because parts are so big/pricey but the Cummins is a great engine. I do wish they had put a heavier duty trans in it, the stock one is kind of puny."
