Decent truck, needs some work

ReviewA decent truck to drive, handles decently for the size. In four wheel drive, winter driving become a lot of fun, with no issues getting stuck. The interior can use some upgrades, everything is plastic and held together rather poorly from the factory. Cup holder and ashtray are problematic and wont stay up, common issue. The parking brake is also a common issue, failure in springs. Simple, but expensive fix due to labor. Power steering rack and pump known to be weak. My pump failed at 86000miles, and rack at 93000. Truck undrivable without power steering. Bed provides adequate space, and interior is able to fit a full compliment of 6 full grown persons, excluding ashtray and drink holder.
Best FeaturesMy favorite features are the availability of interior space, a plus with children, and the 4 wheel drive for off road and winter driving. Also a must for "hard" accelerations.
Worst FeaturesDodge needs to upgrade the interiors, plastic is not all bad, but things that should stay shut, should stay shut. Driver and passenger front doors interfere with door seal strip when open, causing it to tear, and allowing water into cabin. A redesign is called for.
