Good, dependable vehicle. Gets decent gas mileage. Comfortable.

We bought this truck second hand. Although we have had some minor issues with it, overall we love it. It is a 4 door quad cab which makes the interior very large and roomy. The seats are quite plush and comfy. We frequently drive to another state to visit family and the size of this cab makes this truck ideal for this. There is plenty of room to stow all of our bags, still allowing plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable during the long drive. The communications board in the dash also provides us with a wealth of information along the way.

Big red goes for the long run.

We have taken this truck all the way out to the west coast, averages about 16.3 miles per gallon, but 32 gallon gas tank allows us to continue driving for a good amount of distance. I like the radio, and the tuning to increase the volume levels. Rusted over the wheel wells and the running board under the truck, but able to fix that with a little bit of welding a solid metal piece underneath. Nice sitting, can sit for hours without back hurting. Just a very reliable truck, and sits high up for comfort from running on the pothole roads.

2006 Dodge Ram, great for the farm and comfortable for the family.

I have the Laramie Edition with 6-foot bed and either the Mega Cab or Quad Cab. I love the split bench in the front row which allows for an additional passenger. 2 adults fit comfortably in the back along with a younger child. I love the full size bed for hauling material, either for farm or home. The towing power is adequate, though with a heavier trailer it wouldn't leave much for cargo. Overall, I love the truck and would consider a similar truck in the future.
