03 1500 was my first truck. I beat it as hard as I could as often as I could. That's how I learned to pull wrenches. My first ever auto-mechanic project was rebuilding the engine after sinking it and hydro-locking it at 5000 rpm.
Probably had 30 Chevs, 6 Fords, and 15 Dodges since.
Never owned a Dodge that was a complete turd I hated to drive.

I learned the definition of dodge early, the first vehicle in my name was a 74 D250 318 2wd. Drove it six weeks before windowing the block.
Revving it 2K over redline will do that. :flipoff2:

One.

It was an 03 2500 hemi.

I miss it, but it just fell apart. At 230k miles the Engine/trans/drivetrain was still going strong, but everything else was junk or having electrical issues. I swear the entire thing was wired from the factory with 24 gauge harbor freight speaker wire. Gotta get out and punch the driver headlight to get it to work... passenger front window won't go down if its raining... drivers will only go down WHEN its raining... keep a supply box of taillight modules... dash never cracked until one day it did- a month later it was the Grand Canyon etc etc etc etc

2 right now. 2001, 2500 4x4 with the 24 valve Cummins and a 6 speed (dad bought it that way. special order truck cause of the 6 spd). The only real issues with this truck is the shitty paint.
the wifes '15 Challenger. Yes it only has the V-6, but I have had it 134mph and still had pedal left and we get around 28-30 mpg. The V-8 Challenger people bitch about the mpg more than anything.

My wife has a Nitro. Dodges of any kind are rare over here.

Wife's hippy uncle had a WW2 era Dodge ambulance. He fitted windows in the sides converted into a flower power camper. Ruined it. :(

Few years ago owned a 1997 Ram 3500 DRW 4x4 ext cab p-pump cummins diesel. The trans was trashed, it needed injectors, heater core was leaking, didn't have the cash or time to fix it at the time.

Just the other day bought a lower mile 2006 Ram 3500 DRW 4x4 quad cab common rail cummins diesel. Guess I didn't learn my lesson. It already needs a new carrier bearing on the rear drive line.

Those are the only Dodges I've owned and mainly for the engine which they had nothing to do with other than being smart enough to partner with cummins.
