Very reliable

Had the truck, a Tradesman, 3-years and not a single problem with it, besides what the previous owner did. They put leveling blocks on it and big tires that made it ride like a dump truck. Plenty of power with the 6.4l. Very reliable.


Another unhappy dodge owner

When I bought my 2500 loved it had it for 3 years had to replace cam and lifters $3500.00 then starter $900.00 now transmission $7500.00 will not buy another dodge they tried to sell me a new one naked if dodge fixed these problems they said no so I will not buy another one unless you have money don’t buy one


HD Ram 2500

I have only had it a week but so far so good. The city mileage is pretty bad but highway is about 15 or more with the 6.4 Hemi. It seems to have plenty of power but I won't really know until I tow my trailer next month. The ride is very good especially for a HD truck and it looks great.
