"This is a great truck. Turns on a dime, handles tightly and smoothly; Stiff ride on rough surface, (4WDR), nice on smooth pavement, roomy cab, excellent view/large window. , 20"wheels so it turns "instantly". sets quite high/clearance. The only negative is the mileage!She IS thirsty, and for a small V8, this is discouraging!! On the road she gets about 17 mpg. Local is poor MPG. If it had a more fuel efficient engine, this would be a WINNER. Because of the short wheel base, and being "stiff" it handles a trailer exceptionally well. ----"

"Have owned this truck since new in 03' and have had no major issues yet. Did manage to have an overheating problem that was repaired under warranty around 05' 06', but nothing since. Still runs and drives great. Is reliable start. Power is there. Ride is smooth. Hauls well. I would buy this vehicle over again without hesitation."

This truck has more factory options than listed

"In 11 years I have replaced the wiper blades and battery, only! This is the best truck I've ever owned. I purchased my first Dodge Truck in 1978 and have enjoyed Dodge and Chrysler products ever since. My wife currently owns a 2009 Dodge Charger and previously a Chrysler 3M and both cars are/were great. Also, I usually keep my trucks for 8 to 10 years. This truck is now 11 years old and still runs like new."

"The vehicle is great. I love the performance, and the style/looks. It handles great and is very dependable. I'm not completely favorable to the 20 in wheels, but they have grown on me. I would strongly recommend this truck to anybody. This is my second. Owned a 2003 exactly the same, and traded it in with 182,000 miles. This one has 125,000 and I hope to drive it a while. Thanks, and God Bless!"

"Have had no problems since purchase except for intermittent wipers. Gas mileage not too good-passes everything on the road except gas stations. Does seem to go through tires. Pulls trailers with ease. Handles better than most trucks."
