I have never been a fan of the Dodge
pickups. I remember the uqly burnt
orange thing that my brother bought in
the mid 1970s, it really turned me off
Dodge trucks. Then something happened,
they got good looking and really
functional. While I was deployed in
suppport of Operation Iraqi Freedom I
decided if I lived through it I would
treat myself to a new Pickup. I looked
around and it came down to having to
park my but in a truck to make up my
mind as I could not get a good read of
the internet. Ass soon as i sat in my
Dodge 4X4 I knew it was the one. It was
taller than any other I had tried, it
was peppy off the line and had power to
spare in the mid-range.
I love my 5 speed manual transmission.
I had to have the dealer scour the
planet to find one but it was worth it.
I get better fuel economy than a fellow
at work with a two wheel drive
For whatever reason Dodge does not
couple the Hemi engines to the 5 speed
manual transmission. The 4.7 liter
engine is powerfull but the Hemi and a
5 speed would be "off the chain" to use
my childrens words.
I've always owned sport cars, I'll
never but another car again. All I
have to say is Hemi. One problem I am
having now is the front brakes are
squeeking and I think the front rotors
are warped. I've read in a few other
instances that people were having this
problem too. Of course the warranty on
brakes and rotors is up after a year,so
I don't know if Dodge will replace them.
With having 3 girls,we needed room and
something very reliable.I know the
Dodge has both.I have tried other
trucks out ,they just didn't compare to
the Ram and since I have a 74 Dodge
Power Wagon(1 ton) that has over 275000
miles on it and still running great and
pulls everything.Why buy anything else.
The looks of the truck,it just looks
tough and yet rides so comfortable.In
fact my wife got rid of her car and
took the truck away from me.
Ram 1500 has very sleek, eye catching
design. HEMI V8 worth every penny.
Plenty of speed for a durable heavy
duty truck. Very smooth ride as well.
Interior stylish and has no complaints
from me about leg room (Im also 6'3" so
leg room is important)...
HEMI, Front design, and 20 Inch Rims
are my favorite features...Very Fast
Truck with plenty of strength for
hauling whatever you need.
