Great pickup for your money!

by Country Boy from Billings, MT on Mon May 10 2010

Won't find a better pickup for your money. Tough to beat the dodge cummins diesel and the pickups are as tough as the motor. Handle great and pull great!!!

Superb Towing Vehicle - Better Than New Models

by 4x4 from Hudson Valley on Mon Jan 01 2018

The 2006 Dodge RAM 3500 with a 5.9 Cummins Turbo has more low end torque, tows better and gets much better MPG than any of the models made after this year. Highly recommended if you can find one. It will cost you half the price of a new one and outperform it with much lower depreciation.

Great, reliable pickup!

by Country Boy from Broadus, MT on Fri May 07 2010

I love this pickup and hate to get rid of it. You won't find a better running diesel engine for your money. Great power and fuel mileage. Great pulling capabilities without losing much on fuel mileage(load depending)

only had 4 moonths ; pull you house

by gracy freebush from antelope,ca on Mon Feb 20 2012

other than dodge being know for not having a good reputation, great truck so far, 24+ mpg on highway empty. OH buy the way its a 5.9L DIESEL. great power and excelleration NO SLUG HERE! 373 rear end.auto trans. only 62000 miles. good infinity sound system but satilite radio cuts out at times. shifts good. instruments and gauges good. seats ok not real comfy. a little rough ride but probably not as bad as GM 1500. had power seat motor assembly replaced and batteries. 8 ft bed with crew/quad cab makes it a little uneasy to get around the mall parking area and park. wont fit in garadge or drive way have to park alongside garadge. TALK to OWNERS and private repair shops/ personal before buying any vehicle they are your best source of info. dealers and their mechanics are 1 sided.

Great pickup

by Dodge Lover from Billings,MT on Fri May 07 2010

Great pickup, the cummins diesel is about as good as they come. A reliable pickup that will get you down the road.

Now this is a Truck!

by Search and Rescue Junkie from Idaho on Sat May 27 2017

The Ram 3500 MegaCab truly has the most room of any vehicle in the truck market. Mine is used extensively in the Search and Rescue business and the extra room is welcomed by all passengers plus it is great for hauling packs and equipment out of the weather. The only problem is that the design of the doors causes the unit to have excessive wind nose. It can be irritating at times, but all of the dealers say that the only way to stop it is to buy a newer model where the door frame does not wrap into the overhead hood. The six foot bed required because of the extended rear cab room is a slight negative, but again acceptable.

by Michael from Monticello, IN on Wed Jul 04 2018

Do far this truck has plenty of power with is diesel engine. It's tuned and there last of the 5.9 Cummins without all that emissions bs. There cab is roomy and comfortable. The controls are right where they are supposed to be. The bed is shorter than I'm used to but plenty of room so far. It looks good and has plenty of power. Great truck.

Our Take on the 2006 Dodge Ram 3500


The new 2006 Dodge Mega Cab is the cathedral of all pickup trucks; a steel Mecca for those who worship big numbers.

When Dodge redesigned the Ram for the 2002 model year, it morphed extended and crew cab configurations into the Quad Cab. It was three inches longer than a normal extended cab and featured forward-opening doors with outside handles. The strategy was to offer the extended cab customer "a little more."

Then the crew cab market exploded, jumping from 5 percent to more than 40 percent of pickup production in just a few years, according to Dodge officials. The Ford F-150 Super Crew and Super Duty crew cabs were big hits right away, and GM followed suit in both half-ton and heavy-duty models. Sometimes... Read More
