I purchased the truck with the intent of having an all around vehicle, but shortly after had to move 1300 miles. I bought a 32 foot enclosed trailer and made 5 trips from CT to FL in the span of two months towing cars, furniture and thousands of pounds of tools and equipment. The truck operated flawlessly. I wish I could say as much about the trailer! The only upgrade I made to it was installing a set of air bags for the rear suspention, worth every penny.
All the power you'll ever need in a 1500. Comfortable ride, I didn't find myself getting uncomfortable in the seat after hours behind the wheel.
The only suggestion I might have is an optional larger fuel tank around 50 gallons.
This is the best looking truck on the road bar none. It is just plain fun to drive, and you do get alot of glances from other drivers. The Hemi is awesome it is as advertised. The interior could be jazzed up a bit to match the way cool exterior.
Hemi power. Exterior good looks, my 20 inch rims. Lots of accessories to choose from.
This is my third Dodge, truck, 2nd fullsize. I really love this truck and the quality has improved every year. The interior is solid a quiet, all controls are easy to operate and don't feel cheesy. The paint and body are excellent. The engine is the HEMI need I say more? Of course the fuel milage is poor, but I knew that when I decided to purchase this truck. And this is a truck, make no mistake about it. Itis big, commanding and will haul anything I have put in the bed or hook to the trailer hitch. The only real down side I have found are poor rear wheel traction on wet surfaces (again it is the hemi) and I don't like the front end being so low on the 2x4 model. Level it out some Dodge.
The HEMI, comfortable seats, power seat have a lot of range, The HEMI, easy to operate controls. Lots of glass area, make changing lanes or backing up very easy. Nice large side mirrors. Very good heat and air.
Level out the stance, at least raise the front end an inch or two over the fron wheels. Seat material collects a lot of lint. The darker the interior the more lint you see.
Very nice interior storage, especailly
under middle seat in front, and under
rear seats. Excellent turning and
handling, but ride is much rougher than
the 1996 Chevy CK1500 I drove for 115K
miles. Delivered with non functioning
horn that drained the battery and
required a tow at 300 miles. Dashboard
GPS is basically worthless and non
intuitive, you'd be much better off
buying the Garmin portable GPS unit.
Heated seats work great.
Interior room, fit and finish, storage,
radio/cd player/sound system, steering
wheel controls for radio. Hemi provides
tremendous acceleration and engine
performance - stalled alot until I had
1000 miles on it.
Smooth out the ride. Make running board
standard for shorter passengers to get
in more easily.
This is the smoothest riding truck that
I have ever owned. It drives great.
This is one of the best trucks. I was
always a chevrolet man, my last truck
that I just traded in on my new dodge
ram was a silverado swb. This new
truck is awesome to say the least. I
wish I had switched to dodge sooner but
better late than never. I love my new
truck. I hadn't had it three hours
when going out to my brothers house in
the country, a deer ran into the driver
door, so now I've got to put it in the
shop to get my door fixed. But it
still looks great with a dent in the
