'05 dodge 1500: a great

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab SLT 4WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)

I've had it for only 2 months (2300 miles), but so far it has run great, and it drives very comfortably for a 4x4 truck. I use it in my landscape design business, but it is also my primary vehicle. I will write another review in a few years on this same truck, hopefully with the same positive comments!

My second late model Ram (I just traded my 2002). As you see, I'm going on my second Ram. I'm not saying I'm a "Dodge" man, as I've owned lots of makes and models. I rebought the Ram because I like a vehicle that has been good to me. Very roomy and comfortable (I'm 6'6") and well layed out interior. I was in an accident doing 75 MPH in my first Ram and this truck saved my skin (putting it lightly). Best priced truck in the market, I have to laugh at people who say that about Toyota- they obviously haven't priced the Ram. I have shopped around a lot and have seen what others are giving for rebates.

Fun to driver on or off road and has the power you need. When you need it to pull heavy loads, it still has get up and go even in 4x4. All I can say is, sweet!
