    2002 Dodge Ram 1500 - ST 4x4 Quad Cab Short Box

    Pros: LOOKS LIKE A REAL MAN'S TRUCK, AND 4 DOORS FOR FAMILY

    Cons: IF THERE'S ANYTHING? GAS MILEAGE, BUT WHAT DO U EXPECT!!!

    Advice: BUY ONE NOW!!!

    MY FIRST 'NEW' VEHICLE/TRUCK...I PLAN ON KEEPING IT UNTIL IT DIES...DROVE THE COMPETITIION, THEY, CHEVY/GMC ARE GOOD BUT I FELL IN LOVE W/ THE 2002 DODGE RAM QUAD CAB 4X4 SPORT (5.9L V8). IT'S A EYE CATCHER AND GETS A LOT OF QUESTIONS/ATTENTION FROM OTHER TRUCK LOVERS WHILE I'M OUT ON THE ROAD. THE 7YR/100,000 WARRANTY IS GREAT...JUST CAN'T WAIT TILL ITS OVER THEN IT'S TIME TO UPGRADE W/ ACCESSIORIES.....MORE POWER!!!! DRIVES GREAT AND HAS PLENTY OF POWER....WATCH OUT CHEVY AND FORD....DODGE IS THE NEW MAYOR IN TRUCKVILLE!!....THEN THE WORLD!!!!! (EVIL LAUGH) HAHAHA

    2002 Ford Ranger - XLT 2.3L Standard (380A) 4x2 2dr Super Cab Stylesi

    Pros: Engine performance.

    Cons: Some squeaks under the hood that I found, and fixed, when the dealer couldn't.

    Advice: Get the best price you can and make them install some different tires, besides Firestone. Get the XLT as the soundproofing is good.

    Great engine response and gearing is perfect for its intended uses. Low gear is low enough to do some serious off-roading, while the engine just loafs along at 70 mph. It handles ok, but is a pickup, and, as such, is a little light in the rear end. Decent gas mileage, consistently 20 mpg combined with freeway driving over 70 mph. Year is 2000 and have 48 K miles with good reliability. Only problem has been a sticking ignition switch, fixed under warranty. I have the heavy duty suspension and the ride can be rough, but then again, we have some of the worst highways in Calif. The seats are very comfortable, particularly when compared to the seats in my wife's Toyota 4-Runner 4wd. The 4 door is great for access to the back of the cab. It is pretty quiet on the freeway with the XLT package. It has more soundproofing than the regular package. I think it is a great looking pickup.

    2002 Dodge Ram 3500 - ST 4x4 Quad Cab

    Pros: Cummins Motor

    Cons: Service and Suspension

    Advice: Wait till the 2003 models come out!

    This Vehicle Drifts 6'-8' from side to side. Dodge is aware of the front and rear suspension problems that have plagued the Ram trucks for years. I replaced a clutch, preasure plate, etc.. within the first 60 days of use.

    Pros: Styling (dually) and comfort

    2002 Ford F-150 SuperCrew - Lariat 4x2 SuperCrew Cab Styleside Styleside

    Pros: The power

    Cons: Can't think of anything

    Advice: Budget gas money!!! LOL

    A 4600 pound vehicle that will lay the smackdown on Z-28's and Trans-Am's. The Supercharged 5.4 idles like a kitten but hammer it and it roars like a lion! It's got a pick-up body to haul things and it handles like a sports car. Thank god that SVT builds vehicles like this

    2002 Toyota Tacoma - (M5) 4x4 Regular Cab

    Pros: 4WD and a manual 5 speed

    Cons: Engine Noise at high speeds 75 - 100mph

    Advice: Get the extended cab so you'll have some room to throw your stuff, so it doesn't go flying all over when you go off road

    Great Truck. I was pleasantly surprise with the power of this 4 banger
