March 26, 2011Hmmm, I`ve always liked Mopar, have had many mopar`s over the years and this is my 4th Dodge truck. Always liked the Dodge trucks and when they changed the look of them in 94 looking like a small over the road truck, I liked them even more!
I am a toys r us kid and YES, I still play with trucks too!
March 27, 2011I am very large fellow and found I fit my mega-cab quite comfortably. Breaking it in properly has allowed it to settle in at an overall average of 23 mpg. 200,000 miles later, it`s still my favorite vehicle I`ve owned. (It better be, I still have 2 years to pay on it. lol)
All who wander are not lost. I always find my way back.
March 27, 2011Well... My first truck was a 2004 Hemi that my dad gave to me my senior year. Soo many great memories in that thing! Such a great truck, couldnt beat the power. I had soo many plans for her. But, unfortunately I was waiting for my girl to get out of school and was driving on a back road and hit black ice. Fishtailed 90 degrees twice before getting her into the ditch... Then bam, right front tire hit a drainage grate that was sticking 2-3 feet out of the ground and I rolled her going 35 mph. Totalled it. Such a sad day, it was the nicest truck in at the school...
My second truck was a 01 Ram 5.9l V8 Off-Road. When we bought it, it had "140,000" on it, ran good and sounded great. An 2 hours down the road the tranny went out in Pueblo, Co. A rebuilt tranny, new gauges cluster, few other parts, and 4000 dollars later I had a truck that always had a check engine light on but I was the only one that loved her. That truck had 6 other owners before me. One was a car rental company, so it was beat to ish. We didnt know it though. Still was a great truck I have a bunch of great unforgettable memories with that truck too. Everyone knew it was me with my exhaust and my whips! She died this past summer when I went 4-wheeling with another girl friend. We got stuck in a river(it wouldve happened to anyone that went up where I went) this past June. We were stuck 13 hours and search and rescue had to save us. Pretty crappy and fun day though haha.. They tried saving her but the engine was beat to ish too bad(over 250,000 miles, someone replaced the gauge cluster before).
Now my current truck lol. Obviously its another 01 Off-Road but a Sport. I havent seen a truck like mine anywhere. I see other sport off-roads but not black, tan interior, with a sun roof. This truck is absolutely fantastic. I didnt know the 5.9 had this much power/torque(compared to my last one). I bought her with 92,000 miles on her. Shes about to break 100,000 and I wanna keep for another 100,000 as my off road truck once I get enough money(and start my career as a diesel mechanic making $30 an hour, hopefully starting school at Wyotech this fall to get the ball rolling!) to buy a Cummins. I would love to get a 01 Sport 24v Cummins, black too match this truck. But we will see!
I have a bunch of plans for this truck. CAI, SCT tuner, Dual exhaust, new paint job in August. A tune up once she rolls over 100,000 miles in a couple hundred miles. Plus, Im the only owner to actually use the 4WD on this truck! hahaha!
But as you can tell. I love Dodge. I will drive nothing else. Im not trying to sound like a fan boy, but you cant beat the look or the power of what Ram trucks have to offer. Also, my family is a Dodge kind of family. My dad is on his 3rd Ram, a 2010 hemi.
2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L V8 Magnum Sport Off-Road
