Dodge doesn't make trucks, but you can check out posts about my Ram on some of the early pages. It will get 20 mpg pulling my Triton boat, it'll pull my 6,000 lbs travel trailer, and it will get 26-28 mpg commuting to work and 30+ mpg on highway trips with no trailer. There isn't another vehicle on earth that can do all of that, and it cost less than most of the Ford/Toyota/Chevy trucks also. banana

Dodge trucks might be good trucks for what they are in order for your truck to get that kind of gas mileage it would have to be a miracle built motor that is very rare and unheard of ! I've never even know of any car except a 4 Cyl Toyota car that would come close to that kinda of gas mileage . But a work truck ? NEVER !!



a friend asked me to go pick up their travel trailer for them. drove his 04 1t 3500 srw 5.9 cummins with standard trans. 3.55 gears 2wd.
trailer was about 125 miles ea. way, going down got about 24mpg, with a 33' bumper pull trailer going back it got 21. I did have a tailwind of about 10-15.

diesel set up right will get great mileage.

I've been around the world 212 times in my Billy goats. I'm still alive too.

The letters in Ford can be rearranged to spell DORF
The letters in Tundra can be rearranged to spell DARNUT

I had a ram for 11 years. Changed the oil about 5 times and the water pump went out at the lake one day. Limped home with water jugs. Fixed it. She never let me down. I like my Tundra more but the goat was reliable.

You have a dodge, just admit it. It has a billy goat on it. Don't be ashamed. Lol


I traded my Ram 2500 in on a Tundra a month ago. Today I was cleaning out all the receipts from maintenance and repair on the beast. 2 fan-Cluthes, a Radiator, the complete AC system, serpentine belt, shocks,, 3 sets of batteries, etc. the engine and drive train were good, everything else was bad. First Ram, last Ram.


Yep, like normal while you owned a ram it was the best thing since sliced bread. Now that you don't own one anymore they suck and amazing Toyota... or what you now drive, is again the best thing since sliced bread. You did nothing but brag on that ram to the point of absurdity and now its a pos roflmao

Million mile eco.....or not


I still want to know what the routine maintenance is. I wonder if there were some major overhauls on that motor or not.
None..all original ..Big article about it...Toyota gave him a new one after hearing about this hitting 1 mil...are now in possession of it


All the article would say was nothing more than Toyota scheduled maintenance or similar is all I could ever find about it and my question was and still is... what is Toyotas recommended scheduled maintenance for 300,000, 400,000,.... 900,000 etc. miles?

Tundra drivers aren't very convincing. Just picked up my new F-150. Have had two Fords with zero problems so saw no reason to change.

I agree 1OO%. KWC was the biggest Ram homer out there next to me.

Now that got a sip of the Kool-Aid he's trying to trick himself into thinking he has a superior truck now. roflmao

I'm sure KC's new Tundra is better than his 2008 Ram. That's my point. The age of the truck has a much bigger impact on the quality and features than the badge. Newer trucks are just flat out built better with more features than what we had 10 years ago.
