Summary:

A heavy duty hauling machine!

Faults:

Nothing yet.

General Comments:

A solid, reliable work truck. Yes, it has a rough ride and sits high, and the turning radius is like an ocean liner, but it wasn't designed to be a yuppie ride. The solid Dana axles and leaf springs are made for WORK!

The Cummins turbo diesel is nothing short of amazing! It has the power to haul and/or pull almost anything you want. My truck is a dually 4x4 automatic with 4.10 gears that still gets 15mpg on the highway, which is 2mpg more than my light duty 1995 F150 4x4 previously got! I am very pleased so far, and highly recommend a 1st generation Ram diesel to anyone who wants a serious hauler and doesn't mind a "solid" ride.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I would have to agree with you. I am the proud owner of a 1992 Dodge cummins W250 and wouldn't trade it for the world.

I agree... see my comments on my '95 under the other '95 3500.

I just bought my 92 dodge and I already love it theres a few hard parts to find when you need to fix it up, but that's is very seldum that you even need to do work on it the only word that fits this trucks is its just a "beast" I love it.

I have a 92 Dodge dually 350 5.9 liter Cummins. I'm 16, it's my third truck. All my other ones I sold to help my grandmaw out when we were struggling.

I love my truck, it needs body work like fenders and stuff, and my reverse went out. My friend said it was the reverse belt. I think it is too.

The only thing I don't like about it is it's 2 wheel drive, and I just don't have the money to fix it. I worked all last summer till school started to pay for it, so I don't have money to fix it now

:(

I've tried to contact people about helping me out. I've had friends help me money wise, so I'm doing alright, but still looking for help. It's my dream truck, I love Dodge.

I have a 1990 two wheel drive, everything is original except for the alternator, voltage regulator and master cylinder. Drove a work truck, a 92. It had a million km on the original bearings and rings. They are great trucks! I wouldn't trade mine for a new one.
