mega cab 1500
Pros: Leg Room
Cons: Back LightsI bought it because of the leg room. I get 19-20 mpg for a 100 mile drive each day. San Diego to Orange County 4 days a week.
Cons: the v-6for what appears to be 2012 will be the last year for dakota, why? dakota IS the best all around for ride,comfort,4wheel in any terrain..it is a little lighter than most esp during high winds..but all around..i feel its the best,v-8 is more fuel efficient than v-6!!
RAM 1500 Quad cab
Cons: lifted a little high for my liking..Compared to Ford F150 it was really close it came down to best deal..Also love the sport version with the dual exhaust tucked into the bumper..Also the perfomrance of the Hemi is exceptional..Pulling my 21' boat is a breeze..The gas milage in ECO mode on the highway is hitting 22 to 23 miles per gallon..Not bad..The ride is impressive..
Pros: Spacious interior
Cons: N/AThis is my first pickup truck and I'll always have one. Should have got the HEMI.
