Purchased the vehicle Feb 2002; I drove
this new truck on a cross-
country road trip starting in June 2002
which consisted of summer weather, 4
months constant driving, and 17,000
miles total trip. Midwest to New York
to Miami, Miami to San Diego, San Diego
up old Hiway 1 to Seattle, and back to
the Midwest starting point. I
purchased this truck new with 9 miles
on it; it's red SLT Plus (now called
Larmie) and had the Sport package (20"
wheels). New retail price was $38,915;
it had every option available. Other
vehicles I own: Lincoln Navigator, BMW
X5 and Mercedes S600. My favorite: The
DODGE; why?...I had no problems with it
1.SAFETY: Side airbags protection (this
is an option). 2.Hi view point from
drivers seat. 3.Nothing needed to be
fixed or adjusted. 4.Other cars and
trucks make room for me when they see
this truck in thier mirrors. 5.Good
sounds from the 360 motor.
FUEL TANK SIZE: Wish Dodge had the
option for a larger fuel tank (the
2004's short box version now have this
option). I was filling the 26 gallon
tank every 200 miles or so. This truck
is made to burn LOTS of gas!...but hey,
it's suppose to...it's a truck!
