Initially we were very pleased with the
truck. Our first problem occured a
couple of weeks after taking it home.
The transmission valve body went out.
Dodge replaced it under warranty no
sweat. The brake rotors, calipers and
front hubs were next. All needed to be
replaced due to excessive wear because
the r/f caliper would bind (a common
ailment with "floating" calipers).
The truck's saving grace is the 5.9L
Cummins Diesel. Yes it is loud, but it
will pull anything, anywhere, anytime.
If I had it to do over again, I would
buy the 5 speed.
Engine power, decent interior for a
base truck. A/C kicks butt!
Beefier automatic transmission (can you
say Allison?). Get some real brakes
