Wonderful economy for a 3/4 ton truck. I can get about 18 MPG average w/no trailer and 13 MPH with about 10k pounds of cattle and trailer. My kids love the rear seat and there is plenty of storage room. Two complaints: More lumbar support would be nice and my driver side grab handle came loose 2 weeks after I bought the truck. I am 6'0 195, so I should not be too large for it. I am going to get a 2005 for the added HP and torque.
The diesel engine is very quiet and gets about as good fuel economy as one would expect. The style is wonderful. This truck looks tough!!
I have only had my truck for a month
and I have one thing to say,"WOW!!!". I
have had Chevy's and Ford's(Ford's
being my favorite), but this "HEMI" has
got them all whipped. Pulling a heavy
trailer, passing, pulling a steep hill,
or getting to where your going quick is
nothing to this truck. If anyone wants
a real truck, this is it!!!
Power, comfort, great looks, kickin'
sound system, what more could you ask
This is my first new pickup truck and
I'm never going back to a car. Traded
a 2001 Lincoln Continental because we
needed something to two our boat and I
had a used Dodge pickup before. The
build quality has improved on this
Chrysler product so much so that I
can't find the words adequate to
describe it. Everything fits. Corners
fit. Moldings are straight. You can
sure tell the Mercedes influence in
these vehicles. Most comfortable seats
I've ever driven with on long distance
trips. Not even a hint of a rattle or
problem. If you test drive one of
these you'd better be prepared to buy
because you WILL want to. Solid,
This is the tightest, most well built
vehicle I've ever owned even if it's
got a Chrysler badge. Mercedes
influence is sure showing. That Hemi
V8 has no peers. Raw smooth power
under any conditions. Not a hint of
problems. Reliablilty perfect. This
is the ultimate truck.
They could engineer it so that the rear
spark plugs would be easier to get to.
There's 2 plugs per cylinder. I also
wonder why it hold 7 quarts of oil as
oppossed to 5. Thats about the only
things I can thing of. The 5 speed
auto tranny is flawless so far with
