My First Diesel. Big on power and heavy load carrying ability.

2002 Dodge Ram 2500 4dr Quad Cab 139' WB HD 4WD

She's tall and powerful. Easily hauls my hay. Because she's taller than a car, I am able to see far ahead as well as behind allowing me to adjust to highway conditions much more quickly than a smaller, lighter vehicle. I enjoy driving her and stay very alert and aware. Other women have commented that she is a safe truck for me to drive. The extended cab gives me adequate room for my tools and horse equipment. On the down side, I wish the bed were larger, I am currently having a problem with an oil leak which I have been able to locate and will soon mend. The ride is a little stiff, and she's a little awkward for me to maneuver in tight places as I am a short person.

Great engine; heavy duty truck; it'll run forever.

2002 Dodge Ram 2500 4dr Quad Cab 139' WB HD 4WD

It's getting older so minor things are starting to fail such as the water pump but it's easy to work on and the engine itself has never given me a single problem. It's a durable truck and it gets really great fuel mileage for being such a heavy duty truck. Iv had it for almost 5 years and it's never had a major issue. It's a cummins with 180k miles on it so it's barely broken in. My last cummins still runs and it has 450k + miles on it they're just such solid engines.

I bought the truck from a guy in Oregon and it needed a new fuel pump and steering stabilizer. Once it had that it drove perfect for about 3 years but now the transmission is about to go out. Overall it is a great truck really fun to drive and comfortable. I drive it to work and back everyday just across town and it has never once failed me.
