24 valve diesel slt with quad cab

by Fyr1 from Carmel NY on Fri Dec 20 2013

Excellent truck very economical compared to my 1990 2 wd F250. My 4 wd dodge cummings gets almost twice the mileage 20 mpg highway 16 mpg around town. after 180 ,000 miles truck still plows snow well and tows well without diminishing mpg. I will never buy another gasoline powered vehicle, especially with the ethanol being mandated in the fuel. diesel is the way to go. biggest problems gasket leaks, which I stay on top of, after 180000 miles I guess it is not too uncommon a problem.

Strong Truck

by DodgeDriver on Fri Jul 14 2017

This truck is very well built although the transmissions are not the greatest. The engine power will do just about anything you need it to. As long as it is well maintained, the Dodge Ram 2500 will never let you down.

This Truck Is a Beast In The Snow

by Plow King from Westlake, OH on Wed Sep 29 2010

This truck can handle even the biggest snow with no problem! Has enough height and power with the V8 magnum to pull anything and push through 16+ inches of snow. A great work truck and this one with the Western Ultramount Plow and Tailgate spreader make a complete package. Also a clean CARFAX!

Great looks, nice ride, and reliable!

by Enjoyed This Truck! from Rio Vista or Carmichael, CA on Mon Apr 16 2018

The truck has served my needs for 20 years, and now it's time to buy another, Dodge Ram 2500! This one-owner Ram 2500 will get you where you need to go and keep you happy!

Best Work truck for towing

by 5.9Cummins from Powhatan, VA on Sun May 27 2018

I own a landscape business and there is nothing this truck can't pull. 9,000 lb dum trailer with skid steer to enclosed cargo trailer...truck does it all. Runs good and has huge gas tank so only have to fill up once a week. After owning this truck, I will never have a gas work truck again...no comparison.

The BEST Truck I have ever owned

by E.T. from Bullhead City, AZ on Sat Jun 24 2017

Awesome Truck. The only thing I have issues with is the rear brakes and keeping the adjusted. Other than that GREAT Truck! The engine is very tough, strong and reliable. Pulls like a tank and best of all I get 23 plus mpg on the highway and around 16-18 in town.
