This truck is very well built and still is one of the best looking pick up trucks on the road even with all the new 2007 models out. This truck set the standard for all other pick up trucks and competes with all trucks on the road. Great acceleration, speed, and raw power for hauling, I have not driven a better pick up nor one that looks this good.

With 53K plus miles so far, very satisfied. Manufacturer over-torqued front wheels so rotors got warped. Dodge mechanic states valve train noise is normal. Stock tires are a little "floaty" on curves with bumps. No out of pocket expenses yet other than maintenence.




Great 4x4

THE TRUCK IS GREAT LOOKING. MORE THOUGHT COULD HAVE BEEN PUT INTO INTERIOR DESIGN. THE RIDE IS HARSH TO SAY THE LEAST. I HAVE A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVETRAIN OR SUSPENSION THAT THE DEALER REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEGE. THE HEMI ENGINE HAS AN ANNOYING TICKING SOUND THAT THE DEALER SAYS IS "NORMAL." THE DRIVER'S SEAT SHIFTS WHEN TAKING OFF FROM A STOP-STILL NOT FIXED. ENGINE AND TRANS ARE A GOOD MATCH AND FEEL STRONG.
