"The absolute best truck I have ever owned I love the truck it's just old and I want to upgrade I have another dodge ram truck that has 200 k miles on it and I love it also it has been there and done that I have so many times pulled other trucks out of bad situations and every friend I have are Chevy guys and I don't know why at all. They are afraid to buy a dodge. Afraid they will love it . And have to admit they were wrong all those years . I have made believers out of a lot of people. I wish I could afford a new dodge ram
, I would really convert some people . All my friends say I'm the best advertisement dodge has and that I should be working for them, I agree , I definantly have some great advertisement ideas Well see ya later. Oh yea I have owned 5 Chevys and 2 fords so don't go there. Johnny m."
Cons: "little leg room in the rear seat , gas mileage."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"275.478 miles as of 12/1/13
Bought Brand New in 1996 and since then used it for pulling heavy equipment ,boats, tractor's, trailers loaded with cattle , horses, goats , hauled feed, building material ,sand , gravel , rock well you name it and we most likely hauled or pulled it .Took it on a 1500 mile road trip in 2007 with almost 180000 miles on it , never missed a beat,it just keeps on going and so far has never let me down or stranded .
Had to replace the rear seal at 210.00 miles and a water pump everything else is the original equipment that came with the truck .
Regular maintenance , tire's , brakes , and synthetic oil since day 1
There are two negatives on this truck 1. there is not much leg room in the back seat , and 2. it don't get a lot of miles per gallon .
Will never sell this truck , it will be our farm truck until the motor gives up ."
"Bought vehicle used. Had to fix some stuff but that's normal for a used vehicle. 5.9 liter V-8 Magnum is an awesome engine. This is no Cash for Clunker as everything works and is worth about 5 grand anyway. Gets 15 mpg all the time and is cheap to insure. Great value."
"I have a 98 Ram and it is by far my favorite truck. It's getting old... she's had only two real probelms since of owned it the past for years. It sheered an idler pulley on the highway, and I had to replace a wheel bearing. Other than that its great... rides a bit rough but it's a truck and thats what I love about it. I have a 5spd so I haven't expericened any tranny problems and I'm lookin at 147,000... It's a solid truck and my next truck well defintitly be a dodge ram!"
