Most awesome truck ever!
2000 Dodge Ram 1500 360 V8.
When I first bought my truck, it needed:
WHOLE ball joints replaced and paid 600 for it.
Brake pads replaced twice.
Speed sensor replaced in transmission (Same transmission knock on wood).
I love my truck to death, even before this truck I had 1995 Ford Mustang and I loved this car but needed a truck, loved it! Feels like a hemi truck. I installed header, K&N filter, programmer chip (change any mode I wish for).
You can look at me like I am a crazy man, but I've drove my truck above 120 MPH once and it sticks on the road just fine. 0 to 60 around 7.5 seconds, hey it gets to 60 very easy. Have to be easy on the gas when taking off from the stop light.
Oh I forgot to tell, My truck isn't 4WD like MOST Dodge owner would have 4x4, mine is 2 wheel drive and has ext cab. Top of the line (Laramie) with leather seats. Brand new paint (4,000) I've towed several cars on car carrier with no problem, towed a U-haul trailer (6x12) moving 600 miles with no problem. I've towed a lot around. and it still runs the same the day I bought. It gets between 9 to 14 MPG city, and gets 15 to 17 MPG hwy.
It has been awesome truck for me, oh yeah it had cracked dash when I bought it, but I replaced the dash myself and it also has a towing mirror when is very rare to have one on a 2wd 1500. My plan is to get a 6 inch lift (3 inch body and 3 inch suspension). I wouldn't sell or trade this truck for anything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
