"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."

"I bought this vehicle in 2008 with 55000 miles on it, used it daily as a window and door installation truck. Normal maintenance ( tires brakes etc ) regularly scheduled oil changes and a rear end rebuild @ 130k. The truck performed wonderfully. Never let me down"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I've owned this vehicle for 4 yrs and have put very low mileage on it since I got it. It was shipped here from Los Angeles, CA. So it's only been in the cold weather state for a portion of it's life. The previous owner was my now ex-husband who had it for about 2yrs. I had the breaks done 2 years ago. The power steering leaks occasionally...but only occasionally. (??) Other than that I haven't had any problems with it. The tires arE the large 305/40R22s. The only reason I'm selling it is due to me relocating out of state. It was a great asset while living in the semi-country just outside of town."

Power sun roof is great

"Everything works like it did when the truck was new, except the vent control that regulates the air and heat. Neither heat or air will come out on the floor. Vents and defrost works fine. Tires have 75% ware left. Trans mission just serviced, all service on a regular 3000 mile or as the manual calls for. I still get good compliments on the truck now as I did when it was new. It has 88,500 miles on it. All paper work from service appointments and original paperwork available. I trust the truck to sell it to family or friend."

"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."
