2008 Dodge Ram 2500BigART - Bay Area, CA12/04/2008
The acceleration is a little slower if your used to a Hemi, but when towing this diesel just won't stop pulling. Getting on the freeway hauling a 7000lb. load was a breeze! It's even great on fuel. We've seen 22-23mpg highway and about 18-19mpg doing 75MPH. This thing is truly a beast. Even towing we got 15mpg. The only downside is the longer wheel base makes sharp turns difficult and forget going through a fast food drive through. All in all my family loves this truck.

Throttle goes to full rpm after going into passing gear. not all the time but a lot. Dodge can't fix
steering box had to be replaced first, second was front u joints, third was rear u joints. AC quit coming thru vents for one whole day then started working again.
in the shop too many times.
Great deal on a great truck
2015 Dodge Ram 2500Tyler Van Horne - Euless, TX12/31/2016
I upgraded from a 2007 Tundra 5.7, to this RAM 2500 with the 6.7 Cummins diesel. I have a travel trailer RV that I take out very often, and I wanted more power for safety especially accelerating on the highway, more stability, and more comfort options so my wife would enjoy the drives better. The Laramie package had everything we needed, and the next package up was the Bighorn which was about $10K more but I didn't feel at all like you got $10K worth of upgrades.
One thing that surprises me about this truck is how good on gas it is when not towing, for it's weight and engine size. I am seeing MPG in the 30's when not towing, 15 when towing.
I have never owned a Dodge(RAM) product before but I am happy with it.
A truck can offer the perfect blend of utility and power. The sturdy truck bed carries all the tools needed to get a tough job done, and the engine and its torque can help tow all the equipment. With that in mind, different trucks have different towing options. Whether it’s towing for work or the family vacation, here are seven used trucks that excel at pulling their weight.
