In my 1st couple thousand miles of use, I can say that this is the best truck I've ever owned. The ride is very comfortable, the performance is excellent and the instruments are all accessible and intuitive. I live in a mountainous area and passing up hills as always been cumbersome....until I bought the 2009 Ram 1500 with 5.7L Hemi. I've driven many Dodge trucks as well as competitors and can honestly say that the new Ram the clear winner.
Initially, I wasn't sure how I'd like the Ram Box. Its one of my favorite things. I also enjoy the ventilated seats and the U-Connect Phone and Stereo/NAV
iPod compatibility should be standard with the Navigation/U-Connect. Its handy having two glove boxes, but it would be nice if at least one of them was big enough to hold the owner's manual.
