4x4 gets you going great, stopping can be an issue on ice and snow.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500

My Dodge RAM 1500 has been very reliable, I bought it in 2002 with 60k miles. I have driven it on many military backfill deployments. It now has over 180k miles. I have never needs any major repair, I do my own repairs, brakes, coolant, fluid levels and changes-oil, transmission filter and fluid, transfer case and differentials. 4x4 works great, needs a times here in nd/MN. Extended cab has lots of room for passengers and some storage back seat. My only complaint (other than mpg) is RAM rust, very typical on rear wheel fenders, wells, and side panel bottoms. This truck had several features for it is time. Lots of torque and pulling power, 5. 2l engine.

Dodge pickups are well built and can last forever with minimal repairs.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500

My vehicle is a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 extra cab pickup truck. It has a standard transmission, gets good gas mileage for its size, and had zero issues until it passed 200,000 miles. Since that point, I have had a couple of pretty big issues. Last summer I had to replace the axle and shortly after I had to replace the clutch. Currently it is having O2 sensor issues and the radiator needs flushed with a possible thermostat replacement. But really, for having made it over 200k before issues arose is pretty amazing. I purchased it used in 2009 and it is banged and bruised, I've replaced a million tires it seems but still it keeps on trucking!

Built tough, built to last.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Base

For the age of the vehicle it really has long lasting durability for the amount of times its gone across the country. The gas mileage isn't that great, but it's pretty decent for how old and bulky it is. The dashboard according to many other owners is prone to cracking from being sun baked. The inside of the cab is very roomy and open. Plenty of space to seat 6 folks and still have some leg room. It has manual windows which is good so you don't have to worry about motors in the windows. It can haul large loads and pull heavy trailers. It has over 200 thousand miles and is still driving strong.
