Good ride and great handling capability. Reliable. Those with bad experiences with the motor/automatic transmission, all I can say is proper maintenance goes a long way.103,000 miles and the motor and transmission (using the approved tranny fluid )are still strong. Not a dime spent other than fluids (oil changes) and 1 tune up on the engine, tranny. I would strongly recommend a tranny cooler added. The front seats are comfortable on long/short trips. This truck hauls loads with great braking and drive train capability. Only the evaperator, speed sensor, water pump, and light switch have been replaced .Not bad for 103,000 miles. Next truck will be another Dodge after this one wears out in 15 years or so.
Sharp blue sport package,factory rims. Can't say it enough, reliable 318 with cast iron heads. Factory roller rocker arm/lifter setup as part of the valve train.Overheadconsole. Handling. Storage bin under the rear seat(seat flipsup).
Dash material (too much hard plastic) Greasable balljoints from the factory (non of the manufactures have those at least in 1/2 tons)
