We lived in MN and drove this truck there for 6 years. This truck did everything we needed it to do - even through the worst winters in Mn history. We recently bought a travel trailer that is just too much for the 1500, so must sell it. Using hindsight, I should have bought the 3/4T at the time and I would be OK. Many, many great outdoor experiences with this vehicle. Very dependable.
4WD and limited slip rear end. Got me out of a lot of tough situations.
Could have gotten better gas mileage when not pulling anything. About 15MPG was normal.
