I bought this truck in October (I live in maine),
I think the truck is good but I really do use it as a family truck and a work truck. It's is the best family truck but let's see what you get when you take it off road. Make sure to see pros and cons.
Power, reliability, on road performance.
Lifted more, REAL AND TRUE 4WD, Cooler rims, louder exaust, and better suspension
If you put this to the floor in snow, 3 wheels will spin. It is crazy low in the front.
I do suggest this truck to a family but definetly go to a 2500 for a work truck.
I purchased a 2012 Dodge Ram Express in October of 2012. I fell in love at first sight, or maybe at that point it was lust. Nonetheless, within the first mile of the test drive I was in love. This truck is exceptionally smooth and POWERFULL! It is not a truck, this thing is a Race Truck! If you like having plenty of power readily accessible you will be well pleased. I have installed an aftermarket intake on my Ram and imagine it has well over 400 horsepower. The ride and overall smoothness of the truck are incredible. People comment on how smooth it is. I would highly recommend the Ram to anyone. I have gotten 19mpg on a trip to and from the mountains in NC.
