Advice: Would not suggest this product.The truck is one problem after another it has only 39000 miles uses lots of oil. It had the tierod ends and the sway bar links replaced at 20000 miles chrysler refuised to set the towin saying it was part of a frontend allinment that was not covered under the warranty. well to replace two tie rods and do it right you must set the towin. I have owned several new Chrysler products over the past 40 years THIS IS THE LAST.
Cons: My rear door does not line up. poor quality paint job.
Advice: get the nice wheels, not chrome clad, spend the extra $800 get the HemiVery comfortable. this truck is fast if you want to go fast, slow if you want to go slow. Too much body sway in turns(easily corrected). For 800 dollars more you get the hemi, why not, whats another 800 dollars. This truck is a lot of bang for the buck. My truck Cost less than my mini van.
Pros: The HEMI
Cons: gas milage
Advice: check out the DODGE HEMI and dont look backI had the original HEMI in my 1970 Super Bee and loved it. Now 34 years later I bought the Ram 1500 with the new HEMI and am very pleased. It was nothing like the original HEMI I had, but let me tell you that this truck has power. The thrills that you get from acceleration and the torque,far outweigh the gas it uses. If you are looking for the best looking very powerful vehicle,dont hesitate to test drive this one.I have been a FORD man since 1983 and that relationship is over. DODGE has it all over the competition.
Cons: Bad fuel mileage
Advice: Definitely get the HEMI...Got my first truck in this Ram. I could not be more pleased. Not only is it the BEST looking truck on the market, but it outperforms all the rest also. I added nerd bars, duals with flowmaster exhaust and backfitted a K&N filter system. My only disappointment: gas mileage. BUT, I increased this about 1.5-2.0 MPH with the exhaust system and air filter.
